Wow, this one brings very mixed feelings to the surface for me. Having 
worked for the man, I know first hand how ruthless he could be with his 
staff. The thought of honoring him is still very off-putting to me.

OTOH, he was the driving force behind a highly successful station in the 
1960's and part of the 1970's as well as an extremely good judge of air 
talent. Just look at the Who's Who of broadcasting legends that he hired 
at one time or another for validation of that.

This one is a tough call for me even after 37 years of hindsight. Honor 
the station? No problem here. Honor the men who worked there? Sure. 
Honor Mac? ::shiver::
