WGAR Reunion Today

UPDATE 6/12/11 7:55 PM: Here’s some video of the event, courtesy of Ray Glasser via his YouTube account.

Though your Primary Editorial Voice(tm) was not able to make it, OMW did turn out to have representation. From our Second:

Great to meet so many people there at the event today. Many of whom also expressed Very Kind Words about the blog and for the two of us.

Thanks to all of YOU for the kind words.

Our apologies for the short notice this time around. Jim Davison sent us a notice earlier, but it got lost in the OMW Filing System…

Hopefully, we got this up in time for folks to head to downtown Cleveland if they’re interested today. Thanks to Jim Davison, local radio historian and new operations manager of WHTX/1570 Warren, for the heads up.

Expect a regular update by Monday!

    ARGGGGGGH! I wish I had heard about this earlier. Bob James was one of the people I talked to way back in the mid 70s [when he was at WHLO] about how to get into radio. A HUGE influence on me…and he made radio sound so easy!
