Regular listeners get a steady diet of Ron's unhinged, obsessive hatred of Jim Price, but as this video establishes, Ron (and Denny) once seemed quite chummy with Price:

Salem uses WDTK to clear their national shows. Local advertising has to be very little. Any time they can broker to try to break even to any group willing to pony up is a bonus.

Well,McLain and Price WERE teammates,even if they didn't click,and there's a bond among the boys who wear the uniform .Cameron,on the other hand,well,perhaps Price did sometime to anger Ronnie ,and as proven by his Bobby Page feud,Cameron ALWAYS holds and nurtures grudges .

You're not alone if you've noticed that Ron is more sympathetic to Alex Avila than his predecessor. While giving Avila a wide berth in his tearing apart/rebuilding process, he was reflexively against the Dombrowski-led Tigers. As an example, in the years in which the team made the post-season, Ron consistently predicted against the Tigers in EVERY series they played. Prior to the 2013 ALDS against the A's - a rematch of the 2012 ALDS in which Justin Verlander shut-out the A's to win the 5th and deciding game - Ron, as was his wont, picked the A's to win in 5. When reminded by a caller that this prediction meant he was betting against JV in game 5, Ron - without missing a beat - said "Oakland in 4." (As a post-script, the series again went 5 games, with Verlander pitching yet another shut-out in the deciding game.) As everything is personal for the narcissistic Ron, it's pretty reasonable to conclude that Ron's change of disposition over the 2 regimes is informed wholly by the fact that, unlike Dombrowski, who paid Ron no respect, Avila at least deigns to talk to Ron, even agreeing to appear on his show once after becoming GM. Ron is just that transparent.

Only way he could be more transparent is if he'd come out and say it's because they talk to him and appear. Which wouldn't shock me at all. Why can none of his producers kick any common sense into him? Alex has been with him for more than 4 years and the new Joey guy is sharp.

Come to think of it,I never heard Dombrowski on Cameron's show . I wonder,though,if Avila will again be Ron's guest . (Actually,Ron should have JJ,Kurt,Freddie the Pizza Dude or Cowboy Brady in Windsor on his show,because none of them is in his eighties or nineties .Oh,that's right,Ron LOVES those geezers !!!!)

Alex, if you're auditing this board, Cowboy's idea would really represent some outside the box programming. Put a temporary pause on the recycling of addled octogenarians/nonagerians and their decidedly not "very interesting" interviews, which seemingly always end in Ron asking them - for the umpteenth time - what their greatest thrill was in their respective sport. Imagine having as in-studio guests Cowboy, JJ, Kurt, Freddy the Pizza Man (he can do the catering), the "real quick" nasally caller from Livonia whose name escapes me right now. If the budget doesn't allow for flying in Rich from New York, he can stay on the panel as long as necessary to get the Tigers/Wings/Pistons immediate upcoming schedule. And try unearthing Gutterball (Tony, our Sports Talk nation turns its lonely eyes to you). The only problem with this idea is who would call?! Perhaps Ron could reassemble - just for this special occasion - the "insurance company." Alex, make this happen!

Speaking of Alex, it was nice to have him back today. Much better show with him in there, especially considering it was 2 hours of open line. Show actually had somewhat of a flow and Ron didn't get too far off track

That's pretty harsh. :) I find them very interesting, with a lot historical value. Maybe because I just turned 60. It's especially nice to hear how they made lives for themselves after their playing days, when they didn't make the kind of money that they make today.

Kinda reminds me of when my Dad told me about a Tigers player that managed the sporting goods department at Montgomery Ward during his off-season!!!

Point taken, Bobbert, but note that I included the word “recycling” in my indictment. So often, as was the case of Ron’s recent, repeat “interview” of 90-year old Hal Naragon, Ron would just rerun his previous interview with the guest as no new ground is tread. The guest, instead, is used as an opportunity for Ron to both repeat the same stories he’s told ad nauseam, and as a vehicle to rail as his won’t against today’s sports and athletes. And it’s no personal attack on these aged, repeat guests to note that the ravages of time, which will afflict all of those fortunate enough to reach soft lofty years, takes a toll on our hearing and memory, making less than scintillating radio.

Ron has Paul Woods on this hour, and decides to interrupt his interview with him to read the MLB scoreboard. What a waste of time.

Mono,since I'll be 66 July 6,I enjoy Ron's interviews with most of these codgers,though ninety-one-year-old Tom Lasorda had the beginning of dementia the first time he spoke to Ron,though strangely,his second interview was good, and Frank Tanana,who's three days older than I, should have stuck entirely to baseball, as the rest of his appearance proved that he's a babbling religious fanatic .
