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?

So many questions, sports talk with Martin for the next month?
I thought Martin did a good job of talking with Ron. Those two sounded very cordial—they've come a long with since that flare-up a few months ago.

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS !!!

It's Yellow Hammer versus Buggy Whip time again. After a "Priceless" (pun intended) spring training with Dan Dickerson going solo and with well-informed guests, the comedy team of Dan and Jim is back in the radio booth at Tiger games.

Re: Ron Cameron

Funny parody, Momo. Ron could have asked Jackie some very awkward questions about the Detroit Lions being purchased by the Ford family on the same day that her husband was killed, like: "What was the biggest tragedy of November 22, 1963—the assassination of your husband or the purchase of the Detroi...

If they win, they might rank second to the 68 Tigers in lifting the spirits of a region, with all the losing by the pro teams, and the COVID-19 misery.
