• Some of you know that I’ve spent most of my life behind a radio microphone at WBZ, WNEW, and WNBC among other stations. (I got fired a lot.) There are stories about that in my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot. I was lucky enough to be included in the Rock Hall of Fame as an air personality. But I don’t listen to the radio any more. And that hurts, because I loved being on the air. Michael Harrison loved being on the air too. In fact we worked at the same station at different times. He was also a morning personality at WNEW in New York…among other places. A number of years ago, he started a magazine devoted to the then new talk radio format. He called it “Talkers.” You’ll find it on the internet at www.talkers.com Michael gave the most important, extraordinary and passionate talk I have ever heard on the state of radio the other day. I would urge you to watch it at http://bcove.me/3xnrr3pc

    Wow!!! Dick, thanks for the link to that amazing talk. He sure hit the nail on the head multiple times. I found it VERY informative. As a former New Yorker, I also related to all the stations he mentioned.
    I loved his take on radio advertising. The man is simply brilliant.
