Re: Tragic

"Rairoad crossing, look out for cars, can you spell that without any R's?" Yes, T-H-A-T. A childhood brain teaser. Stop! Look! Listen! Think!

And "take your head out of the sand before making any quick moves!" A fundamental business acumen.

Tragic

Did you hear the tragic news about the broadcaster who decided it was finally time to move forward! However, he forgot to take his head out of the sand first. Yep, broke his neck!

Record/Radio Pro Skip Schrieber

I'm saddened by the news of the passing of one of our industry's real gentlmen, Skip Schrieber. He helped make SHE's Only Rock n Roll one of the great radio stations 'back in the day' through his creative promotions and record company support. I'm so glad to have caught up with him by phone in recen...

Another Round Of Layoffs At Clear Channel

The continued annihilation of its most important asset, people, inches broadcasting's largest entity yet closer to its own self-annihilation. Right on cue, jolly old Clear Channel delivers its year-end performance bonuses all wrapped up and pretty in pink slips. Consider this temporary intterruption...

Re: As They Say In the Falklands, Falkem!

A salute to comrades and friends who served our country in uniform. I remember young, smiling faces on most, but anguish on others, as the days neared for the trip across the Pacific to the God forsaken jungles of Viet Nam.

From one young Taurus to others-The Secret For Eternal Youth

You could get just about anything you wanted at The Busy Bee Cafe in Sylacauga, Alabama. People would stop by to enjoy ham and eggs with grits (not optional), get a haircut, or have a tooth pulled.
