That is probably true Momo. Perhaps Cowboy is doing something useful with his time these days? I know he's still rambling on about anniversaries and what not on Ron's show, until Ron can get another caller he can move on to. I missed the spanking.....

I’m predicting Glen Sather won’t be on today.

If Glen Sather isn’t on today, will Ron react with bluster like he did with Anthony Fenech or will he excuse Sather or make some face-saving explanation? And if Sather does appear, how much of the “interview” will be devoted to their “friendship” and then hijacked by stories about Ron (Glen, do or did you know my buddy X?), with Sather passively listening in? We can anticipate Ron asking Sather what his biggest thrill in hockey was and maybe even if he always wanted to be in professional hockey. And, of course, we can anticipate Ron giving play-by-play of the early innings of another meaningless Tigers game. Looking forward to another show destined for the Broadcasting Hall of Fame!

Was Ron ever good on radio? He and Bob did well on t.v but that's about it.

Methinks Ron's great friend Glen Sather will never be on the show. And what riveting stuff to start the show. So much time dedicated to putting up the stats of a future (??) guest!

Today's show is quite a train wreck. He whispered to Matt to get out of the room lol. I liked the excuse about Sather coming on in 2 weeks now. He's never coming on.

Is there a more clueless caller than the obsequious JJ? He's bowing down to Ron for getting Sather on the show. News alert, JJ: he hasn't been on the show and likely will never be on the show!

Ron has his priorities. He didn't read the sports page today because he wanted reading material for his dinner tonight at the Fenton Hotel! You just can't make this stuff up!

What was up with all the whispering today? They act like we can’t hear. I had to laugh when Ron wanted William Gays stats but Matt had the wrong player and swore he never played for the Lions lol. Then Matt finally got his stats up and Ron commented on how heavy he got. Matt is a joke. He deserves to be embarrassed on the radio.

Ron’s either a complete nonentity in this market or so superior that no one would ever consider him to be Detroit’s worst sports media personality:
He's been a non-entity for at least three decades. Purchases his air time from WDTK.

Yes, my question suggested that answer. And to respond to 313sports, there's no way that this no talent could ever have been any good in this format. That, however momentarily, he had his own drive-time show on the then-WXYZ beggars belief. If you read Bob Talbert's contemporaneous columns, they are eerily reminiscent of the scathing contempt Ron generates on this board.

What kills me is that he forces guests to do a full hour, and just drags it on with dumb questions. Every so often there's enough material for the full hour, but even then he'll make the guest listen to him ramble on. No wonder the same people come on and that's all he can get. As far as Matt goes, anytime he speaks it's cringeworthy.

Still trying to wrap my head around the fact that someone who, outside the show, has no access to the Internet, would not, at a minimum, read that day's Freep sports section because he'd rather have it to read later at dinner. Just an incredible lack of preparation and a real finger to the audience you just know this bitter man holds in such contempt.
