*This week in 1977, an agreement was reached regarding the classical station WEFM. Lee Abrams had big plans to turn it into a Top 40 Rock station. His story about the greatest station that never was, is a fascinating read. |
=Steve Dale had a great interview with the legendary Fred Winston (WLS, WCFL, WFYR, WJMK, etc) this week. I missed it when it was live, so I’m so happy they posted it on the WGN Radio website.
Fred is looking good. Great interview. He is hilarious. By far the nicest person I have met in the industry.
*R.I.P Robert Clary
=The Hogan's Heroes star died this week at the age of 96. Me-TV is going to pay tribute to him by playing some of his classic Hogan's Heroes episodes on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week, from 9:00-10pm each night.
Robert was the last one alive from the show. French-born POW survivor of Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Lost 12 members of his family, he was lucky and liberated. Realized that 3 of his siblings escaped being captured. God Bless.
