I saw Dick last year at Buddy's in Farmington Hills. He was with his sister Cathy, who's another Detroit-area broadcaster, with assorted other family members. I almost didn't recognize him because he'd lost a lot of weight since our high school radio days. I wish honeyman had been there with us.

Last I heard, Jim Harper was doing a Saturday airshift on WLXT Light 96.3 Petoskey. Reportedly, he was driving past the studios on US 31 South of Petoskey one day and decided to go in and see what was happening, and Trish MacDonald offered him a job.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

Jim Harper is currently on the air at some Hot AC station in the area.
I guess he didn't like retirement

No one hears anything about how he’s doing nowadays, is he still alive?

I saw Stacy Duford doing weather on 62 a while ago. Always thought she was a blonde when she was on the radio.
