I have fond memories of listening to Dallas' KLIF the Mighty 1190 through my Raleigh transistor radio. I took that little transistor companion with me on family vacations and listened to KHJ in Los Angeles and KJR in Seattle.
Although today's technology delivers convenience better selection and sound quality, it doesn't bring the companionship that great personalities do.
My friend Chuck Gratner when he led KOJO in Dallas during the 80s said it well:
At its' best, each medium has its' advantages:
At its' best, television entertains best.
At its' best, newspapers inform best.
At its' best, radio companions best.
