Radio: It Is What It Is, But Ain't What It Was.

Two things yesterday caused me to wax the nostalgic broadcast radio surfboard.

First, Sdkluger posted a thread asking about an item he heard on the radio around Christmas when he was growing up. Of course I started digging in my “usual spots” to locate the answer (I’m still working on it).

Second, I was digging around on FaceBook and found a Disc Jockey (Dee-Jay) from back in my teen day named John “Records” Landecker and one from my early adulthood called Slats. When I listened to John in the seventies, he broadcast on 89 WLS-AM out of Chicago. Does anybody else remember his famous “Boogie Checks?” John would take as many phone calls as he could in an allotted amount of time of about one to three minutes. Slats was a high energy dude on KDF out of Nashville, Tennessee. You never knew what was about to happen next! (It's crazy cool that both accepted my FaceBook friend request!)

Chances are, no one here under forty years of age will...
