That is the shame about all of the "old timers" dying off-- so many of
their great stories were never recorded, and we will lose those memories
unless somebody thought to either write them down or record them.
That's why I always have enjoyed interview programs like Jordan Rich or
Steve Leveille where the veteran performers sometimes come on the air to
reminisce. Brings back a lot of memories about what we've lost and what
radio still means to many of us.
