In 1992 I helped put together a promotion called The Radio Reunion Weekend; we had over 50 former on-air personalities (who had worked at ANY station) in Cape Girardeau come back for the 5-day event; Ron Harris of Westwood One fame brought in a great jingle package and liners from Don Pardo and Casey Kasem; this event captured the power and imagination that only radio can; it made me a believer all over again; a lot of great people made this a once-in-a-lifetime experience: Rock'n Ron Harris, Thom Price, Clear Channel's Jim 'Dave Lundy' Smith, Debbie Connor (WIL), Tom Stine, Fran James, Doug Cannon, ESPN Radio's Bruce Gilbert and too many to list; each person made a huge impact on my career and confirmed to me why I had my mom clear out my closet at 8 years old so that I could have my own radio 'studio' to play in; I'd love hear from old radio friends."
