The importance of local talk radio

Met Bishop Sheen in 1970 when I worked on Cardinal Cushing's funeral
and WNAC had him for commentary.

Strange thing about how the funeral was covered. Back then there were
only 3 color remote trucks in town (5,38 and 27) yet WNAC handled the
pool coverage bringing in the WOR truck.
I never found out the reason why RKO General took on that role.

I remember on Saturday nights that Sheen later went head to head with
Jackie Gleason on ABC after Dumont folded.
