A quick welcome, redux!

Hi and hi again -- thanks to Don Barrett many of you are finding this blog for the first time. Welcome!

Normally I update the blog once a week, however if there's breaking news and / or my day job gets in the way, the schedule might become a bit more erratic.

My goal is not to emulate LARadio.com -- no one can do what Don Barrett did so well and for so long, but I simply needed an outlet to keep writing about my favorite media.

Yours truly, Dick Whittington, Don Barrett earlier this year

Thanks to Don Barrett, I've met a number of individuals who are my heroes -- talent that graced the local airwaves. That may be one of you that I had the privilege of meeting and perhaps interviewing!

I probably will write more based on my memories about my time listening to the L.A. radio dial, but to reiterate, if there's breaking news I'll try to offer my two yen. And of course, there's my annual year in review, my once-a-year attempt to try to make sense of the twelve previous months. Hint: This year's review will be a doozy!

Hoping all of you are safe and sane! I welcome feedback, just not in my headphones.

    1. Thank you! My goal is about once a week, I have a pesky day job that keeps me from my real occupation, but I'll do the best I can. Please stay safe and sane!

  4. Thank you Alan for picking up the baton from Don. Don’s page was a bookmark for several years and I will truly miss it. Hope Don is doing well. Can’t wait to see what you bring to the table. Maybe Don can jump in now and then tell us what he’s been up to!

    1. Thanks for the kind words, but no one can do what Don Barrett did for such a long time and such high quality. I'm addicted to radio and enjoy writing about it, so this is mostly for fun. I'll do my best!

  5. I'm so happy that the baton has been passed, so to speak. Don did a fantabulous job of keeping us in the know on all things LA radio. Don't forget to include a meme or cartoon! ;)

    1. I can't replace Don Barrett but I do plan on having some fun with this. I may include an occasional meme or cartoon. Perhaps not as interesting as some of his choices (I can already hear him accusing me of being chicken feed, or something else chickens are famous for).
