BTW, Jay, just to keep the record straight, you are right. It was not you who committed that dastardly Burger King deed on Hal Murray. I waited a while to confirm that because I was waiting to see if the guilty part(ies)y would come forward. But, alas, he(she)(they) has(have) not, and I will not reveal the identity of the perpetrator(s). Who do you think I am? Big ------ Bompensiero?...and did they ever explain why he was called Big ------? Was it a compliment or an insult?
You're also right that it would have been a better story if they did it to George Benson. Not only would George have stuck around for more burgers, he probably would've hidden in the men's room until the morning so that he would have some food handy in case he got hungry in the middle of the night. More than once we'd be on our way to lunch when George would make me stop at the 7-11 so he could get something to eat...while on the way to lunch! RIP Benson Burner
As a matter of fact, I think the fact that George and too many other classic 11-7 personalitites (Bob, Hal, Seymour) are gone is one reason that a documentary about 11-7 would not be feasible or work. There's no video of 11-7 (although I do know it was a radio station) and probably precious little audio either, and, even to those in the industry, talking heads pontificating about the good old days can be pretty dull. It's true that 11-7 had more than the average number of wild, wacky, weird and wonderful people and situations, but, when you think about TV shows or movies about radio (WKRP in Cincinnati, News Radio, FM, etc.), they all featured wild, wacky, weird and wonderful people and situations (Dr. Johnny Fever, Les Nessman, Bill McNeal, imaginary office walls, etc.) Although 11-7 did do things that nobody else did, I'm not sure how much interest there would be in those things after the radio-interested public has already seen a radio station drop turkeys from airplanes.
Regardless, for those of us who were there, we have a lot of good memories and good friends. Of course, nobody there ever made any good money, which definitely would have beat the hell out of this memories and friends bullbleep
