...the recycling of addled octogenarians/nonagerians...
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 .

If Ron has a guest today, who wants to bet he's 75+? Yesterday was an awful show of 2 hours open line. He was asked an email question, started to answer it, then gave the score..Matt can't keep him on track

If one is looking for any more evidence of what a nonentity this blowhard is, I remember his response to the passing of former Pistons coach, Flip Saunders. Ron, who sits on press row, said he had never met him! How is that even possible?!

As I'm listening right now, he took an opportunity to talk about Dan Gilbert and meeting him. Of course, it had to be about him and Ron claimed that Dan asked if he was still on the air like he's some deity.

313sports, Ron also passed on an unattributed report on the state of Dan Gilbert’s current health. It wouldn’t shock me, of course, if he pulled that out of his ass, which, if the case, makes it an especially reprehensible thing to say.
