Re: JIM PRICE STINKS !!!

I checked out Price's Wikipedia page and found a section on his quirks and signature phrases. This particular edit was entertaining: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jim_Price_%28catcher%29&type=revision&diff=730468045&oldid=725728416 The edits also include many "Reverting possible vandali...

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS !!!

Price has always been a company man, and has probably done everything possible through the years to be a favorite of the Tigers management. This video from the locker room after the Tigers won the 1968 World Series is very revealing: https://youtu.be/7tSVM_YHz9c?t=9488

Re: Ron Cameron

On the Detroit Free Press website, a story link read "One of Detroit's radio stars is leaving the airwaves". Could this be the big announcement that Ron planned for today? But no, it turned out to be Vickie Thomas of WWJ.

Re: Ron Cameron

I agree Momo, this is no update, this is what was expected when he made the first big announcement. Ron has not changed in 40 years why change anything up now? Keep it going with same old song and dance. The hilarious thing is ratings went up h.u.g.e. today at WPON. Brilliant marketing by somebody ...

Re: Ron Cameron

Very funny, Bobbert. I'm trying to imagine the famously thin-skinned Ron Cameron agreeing to be roasted. There'd have to be a free meal involved. Thanks. I got my taste for satire back in the 1970s from this young guy in Indianapolis who did satirical pieces on a local radio station. Somebody named...

Ron Cameron Roast First up was an elderly gentleman with long white hair and a tattered old jean jacket with rusted buttons of Bobby Layne, Al Kaline, and Terry Sawchuk. "Remember me, Ronny!" said the man, only identified as East Side Louie. "Remember the old Knot Hole Gang days from Briggs Stadium...

Re: Loss of Limbaugh, Retirement Of Beckman And Others, May Force Changes At WJR

(Interestingly, WJR also reacted to McCarthy's death with another significant hiring—Mitch Albom. In October 1995, he was hired for the 4-6 p.m. slot, starting in January 1996) Don’t forget about Ken Calvert joining WJR around that same time. Late mornings. I do believe. Thanks. I looked it up and ...

Re: R.B. Greaves-Take a letter Maria

Pop songs from 1969 and 1970 have a special sound. The energy and enthusiasm of the 60s, plus an extra bit of punch in the production that was a preview of the heavily produced pop songs of the 1970s. My family had a swimming club membership those two years, and I can still hear those songs playing ...

Re: Get Off The Stage !!!

Saw Queen in early 1976 in Indianapolis, on their Night at the Opera tour. The opening act knew that the crowd wasn't there to see them, so they wrapped up their show by saying, "We'll do one more song and make way for the Queenies." Who was it? Bob Seger. I'm guessing that Seger wasn't opening for ...

Re: Get Off The Stage !!!

Has anyone out there ever seen an opening act get booed of the stage. I've never seen it but I've heard a few stories, (The Clash opening for Who at the Silverdome for example.) Same venue; different act, and - depending on who's relating the story - the 'artist' was booed, abused, or had 'items of...

Re: Ron Cameron

I had to smile at a couple of lines by Ron today:
  • One of the restaurant people wanting him "in the worst way." Double meaning alert!
  • Seeing a lot of empty seats at Comerica Park yesterday. You mean, in addition to the 32,000 seats that were supposed to be empty?
