Additional Notes
   I do not like what I hear on the air these days. I come from an era of where talent was the main priority, not cost cutting. A time when on air personalities got ratings up, and revenues up. Owners knew the value of a strong morning personality. I want to put mature and business savvy back on the air. Burns and Allen, Jack Benny, Amos and Andy, Bob Hope, Al Jolson...they built radio. They were entertainers...that's what I will bring to the air...entertainment.
