Re: Musicradio 77 WABeatleC Beatlemania Monday

I just read in yesterday's issue of Radio & Records that Shannon is going to
be the only "music" jock.  They're gonna use Curtis Sliwa, and some other
talk hosts.  Who and where is WABC''s PD?

The "Shannon" they need is not AOR's WPLJ Shannon, but Bob Shannon (his real
name, yes) from WCBS-M, but of course, they can't really ask him to because
he's not with WABC.

I'm ashamed of he fact that WRKO used talk hosts as well, and screwed up
heir own "More Music/WRKO" reunion of sorts.  Let talk hosts talk, and music
hosts do music.
