I heard at the Quick Trip at 31st and Sheridan that Bob O'Shea & Dick "Dickeroo" Loftin were coming back as a new morning team on Big Country 99.5. Should be quite interesting.
I just got off the phone with Loftin. Yeah we both worked for that blow torch of a rocker KWEN back in the 70's. No there's a feature length film on how to tinker a successful radio station into oblivion in six short months. Journal Broadcast Tulsa is doing the same thing in reverse. I can't wait to see if this new PD really holds sway. I hope he does for his and the music station's sake. For the seven years I was there under Journal management, it was just one screw up after another. And then there is the current GM. Not a bad guy really, he just thinks he knows programming better than a real PD. NOT!!! Randy, if you read this take a hint or at least look at your numbers.
As far as Loftin and I getting together on a morning show.....not in a million years. Dick and I have had enough. We've paid our dues many times over. The radio industry Dick and I got into as young talents has gone straight to hell. Journal Broadcasting shouldn't even have a license to broadcast. Personally I'm embarrassed for Tulsa radio for a host of reasons I don't even want to get into right now. I feel sorry for my friends who are still there. They are great talents who aren't allowed to be all they can be.
