At my age, looking back and then listening to what I did on WBT radio in the 70’s and 80’s, it makes me smile and laugh. You forget how much fun it was. You also remember how it has changed and maybe not always for the better. It’s a different world so it’s not fair to compare the two. In those days, we hosts were known as the ‘Entertainers’ on WBT. We used the phones on the air for the first time and we were also involved in the community every day. Probably the biggest reason for our success was teamwork. We had good management and the talent on the air was top of the line. We were surrounded by creative, clever people, and we came to work to have fun.
After inducting me into the WBT Hall of Fame, the station posted about me and others who left their mark at the station. This tribute video is so well produced… and I had forgotten what a motor mouth I was! Take a listen. I think you’ll like it.
