Since I work during the day I can very seldom listen to the radio between 9 and Noon, but this morning I was able to try and catch a few minutes of Mike McConnell's program on WLW.
Today Scott Sloan was on, with no mention of where McConnell was.
Politburo-like, no mention means bad news on Clear Channel.
So I did a little hunting and found this.
Damn and Double Damn.
I have been catching McConnell off and on during the day for I know over 25 years. I have been listening since Trivia Mondays. How long ago was that?
Hell, I even fixed his car once (an early '80s Buick big body (LeSabre I think) with a V-6; it had to be a dog on the highway.
But Mike never was. I can't remember ever turning his show off because it wasn't interesting.
And I seldom disagree with him; that makes him a purty smart individual right there.
But this ain't the old days. I won't have to lay awake nights hoping for a clear night and some WGN skip.
I can tune WGN in on my computer, or in the car on my iPhone.
I just won't be supporting WLW anymore.
Check out some of the comments in the article from the Sun-Times. The first few weeks of Mike in Chicago may be a real hoot.
