All I can say is WOW!!! The station that gave us Steve and Garry, Kevin Matthews, Tom O' Toole, Wendy Snyder, Johhny B. and many, many more. |
All the people who've been on the air at "The Loop" "Chicago Eddie Schwartz", Danny Bonaduce, Buzz, Matt Bisbee, Jimmy Shorts, Steve Cochran, Cara Caraveue, Don Nelson, Seaver, Steve Downes, Scott Loftus, Dorothy Humpries, Fred Winston, Lesle Keiling, Mancow, Tim Virgin, just to name a " few" .
Some you may like, liked in the past, some maybe not, but, you can't discount the impact "The Loop" and the historic WLUP call letters have had in Chicago! A station named after the most important business district in the midwest.
I know "The Loop" of today, like so many other heritage stations today, are really shells of their former glory, but, this is very sad news to me!!
This station and I are almost the same age..
The other part of this story that is so horrible is that so many people on the air and behind the scenes, are going to lose their jobs to an automated station with zero connection to Chicago.
