Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

I can't remember Ron ever talking about politics. Obviously, he's on WDTK because broadcast time is less expensive on that station, NOT his political beliefs. Personally, I think WDFN should give him a show, or at least bargain rates for contract time. He would give WDFN what they need, LOCAL conten...

Re: Mike Duggan files for divorce

Personally, I don't care about the Mayor's personal life. But, Duggan has gotten more done for the city than any other politician has done in my lifetime. And, I have been following Detroit politics for nearly 50 years. His time in office is far from perfect, but look back with what he had to work w...

Hey Cowboy, I'd love to hear you ask Phil Regan about Leo Durocher. I bet he could talk an hour about Leo the Lip!

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Cowboy, you're one of my favs! And, I heard you talk to Regan that day. I remember him on the Cubs., etc. My grandmother lived in west-central Indiana and didn't own a TV set. So, when we went to visit her, I would listen to the games on WGN in my father's car. Of course, they were always day games ...

Re: Farewell, Uncle Russ

I worked at WCAR AM1130 in 1977. He had a talk show at night as I remember it. I rarely saw him, but when I did, he acted like he was always in a hurry. The sort of mantic type, always moving about crazily looking for something. I think I greeted him once, and he just stared back at me. I was in sal...

Re: What WJR Could Change In The Future.

Unless you listen to Howard Stern, et al, there's plenty of content on AM/FM radio. I'm not happy that there's not as much content as there used to be. But, that's life these days. And...I'm not rich, but I'm well off, and I'm not going to spend excess dollars on a car radio. It's a car radio, that'...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

I've been listening to Ron to close to 40 years, and he's the same as always. Just enjoy his act, it's that simple. Enjoy his interviews with Charlie Maxwell, Paul Foytack, and others. His interview last week with Phil Regan was quite good. Regan is an excellent guest with lots of stories, and he's'...

Re: What WJR Could Change In The Future.

The national voices of today are just "Johnny-one-notes", i.e., right-wing politicos. That why W. J. R. stands for We're Just Republicans, not Detroit, anymore. Back in the day, WJR was the home of those Hall of Fame broadcasters like, Arthur Godfrey, Paul Harvey, Win Elliot, and those CBS News grea...

In the 80s, I met the owner of WILS at his home near Okemos. I don't recall the gentlemen's name. Any help?

Re: Tiger's on Free TV OTA

I work the afternoon shift. We can only watch free OTA tv at work. We don't have access to cable at work. We would watch the Tigers on a station like 50, 20, or one of the sub-channels. It's a no-brainer. There are thousands of viewers like us in this 3-shift area. Plus, all those life-long Tigers f...
