KOMA and old age

KOMA ranked No. 2 in all day parts, with Danny Williams and Lisa Sykes in the morning, Ronnie Kaye in midday, Dave Martin in afternoon drive and Fred Hendrickson in evening. Program director Kent Jones' 9 to 11 a.m. show straddles morning drive and midday.

Williams, who turned 81 last month, shows no signs of wanting to hang up his microphone.

"He's like the Energizer bunny,” said Don Pollnow, Renda Broadcasting market manager

I certainly believe that "old stuff is good stuff"! I also believe that radio should be restored as it was years ago, with original programming, live deejays and local flavor...the latter is one main ingredient that drew me to DXing (listening for and monitoring distant stations), because it is so interesting to hear news and views from somewhere else other than where I live.

Needless to say, syndication and consolidation took most of that away...although, used properly, syndicated programs can be interesting and entertaining, especially in our Information Age. Other than that, there are still some college FM stations, like WHIL here in Mobile, AL, that still have late-night original programming, but it's hard to hear outside it's intended many FMs are.

As long as airchecks exist, so will history...and may we always enjoy the lessons! Bud, Mobile, AL
