It was such a great ride for at least a quarter of a century, I got to be a small part of Don Barrett's effort for about 20 years. To reiterate what I said in the LARadio.com farewell column, the bar was set so high by Don Barrett that any attempt to emulate what he did would be futile if I were to try.
So why the blog here? Radio is still my favorite medium, albeit it may be more about my memories associated with the AM / FM dial than what I listen to now. Not because there aren't very talented people now on the local radio dial, it's simply very different that what I grew up with. Still, there's some stories from the past and present I want to still share and hopefully continue to do the interviews I enjoyed doing for LARadio.com. And of course, there's my annual attempt at being creative, AKA the year in review.
Before I go any further, Jeffrey Leonard does a wonderful job with his "Memories of LA Radio" page on Facebook. He'll offer something more comprehensive than what I'll have to offer, I recommend you check on what he has to offer.
I'm thinking about updating this once a week or so, or whenever there's breaking news. I'll try to have something earlier in the week, but as you may know I've a day job so that takes priority. Oh yeah, I also have a family and I've a vested interest in staying married.
Thanks to those of you who've expressed interest. Please go read Don Barrett's farewell at www.laradio.com if you haven't done so already. Stay tuned.
