We got the send-off today in the same studio where it all began back in the seventies.
This is WFMB-AM 1450, formerly WCVS "The Big 14" at 3055 S. 4th.
That's Sam Madonia & Jeff Hoffman with Brian & Kellie. I was the night jock in the seventies, and Kell was the mid-day girl in the early 80's. This is truly the room where it all began for me. If you've ever driven by the studios, this is the old main round studio at the center of the round building. Sam gave us 90 minutes and took calls from listeners, and even advertisers who we worked with over the years. Thanks to Bob Ridings for the kind words, and George Haven, my SHS math teacher for calling in. It seems appropriate to leave this town from the same room where I spoke my first real commercial radio words a long time ago.
Thanks to Sam, Paul & GM Kevin O'Dea for the opportunity. Off now to Wichita. The next post from there.
