Re: Bob Stuart

Well, for what it's worth....I coulda sworn I heard him doing mornings as
well.  For a guy with his talent and voice...it seemed to make sense.  He
was probably the most expereienced they had.

I thought he was doing mornings there when they made the switch.  (Wasn't
this right after Quentin Migliori did mornings under the old AC format?)
