TV and radio now in Full Stretch mode, having virtually nothing to say
and taking 60 minutes per hour to say it. Last night's network television
programming could easily provide years of "What Not To Do" source
material for college journalism classes: a shameful amount of rumor reporting
and oh-so-very-little actual news coverage.
It's a case of networks and reporters expecting
one thing, except that another thing happens, but the nets are still reporting
what they expected. A few missiles have been fired. This is NOT
"shock and awe" so why the full-time coverage? Wally Baloo,
does anyone remember you?
it'll be a long time before this little Missy tries any free speech again,
if she knows what's good for her.
I used to listen to you when you were at KLIF in Dallas. I am 54 years
old. I was a kid when I listened to KLIF. Gordon McLendon ruled the airwaves
then. I guess my point is we are both older than dirt.
Yeah, I was about 14 then.
In these days of beancounter corporate music radio I sorely miss Gordon.
He was such a great influence. In 2002, the work I did for him back
in the 1960s, was considered good enough to warrant a place for me in
the Texas Radio Hall of Fame. Ain't been no one like Gordon since, nor
even halfway close. He was brilliant in programming, entertainment and
promotion. When I was there, KLIF had the last 60 share in radio. Stations
today think they're hot if they get a 4 or 5 share rating. By the way,
a lot of the guys you listened to at KLIF are listed on the My So-Called
Career page on my website here.
Thanks for writing.
KLIF / Dallas 1960s
Origami Boulder floored me! I never cease to be amazed at your sense of
humor and I have no idea where that
website came from, but it is a hoot! Keep up the good work! Don't
go away: stay at KTSA!
I'm not going anywhere. Well,
not that I know of. You haven't heard anything, have you? You HAVE,
I'll bet! Oh, now I get it: everyone else knows except me and I will
be the last to find out because it's always like that in radio.
Damn. I hate packing.
It is so hard to decipher whether you lean this way, lean that way, or
just stir the pot to see which pea comes up to be burned. :-) Or, it's
just to stimulate callers and arouse their anxiety.
