Happy New Year! Fingers crossed this year will be better than last. Funny, we said that last year, how did that work out? Let’s just hope. I start off this column with a question for those who are old farts like me. Not looking for an answer, but maybe it’s crossed your mind as well […]

How are you? Two quick notes before the topic at hand. One, MAJOR thanks to those who made it out to celebrate Broadcast Legend Jim Barrett. Second, and I’m VERY late in doing so (thanks Fredette, or COVID, not sure which is more deadly). Last summer, I had a heart attack and a bypass. I’m […]

As I write this, it’s hitting September, the month where we celebrate the 55th year of Jim Barrett being on the radio.  And not just because of that long of a career, but that his talents have been heard on various radio stations in the Capital Region over the decades. As I mentioned couple of […]

From where I sit, many, but not all people feel the COVID crisis appears to be over (depends on who you talk to, me, I got both my shots so I feel fine), and here’s hoping your ongoing summer plans don’t take a “variant” turn and get all screwed up again. Let’s focus on the […]

Hi once again, hope you, like me, are enjoying the (slow but sure) return of freedom and normalcy.  That’s not the topic, just wanted to say it for a “Yay Us” moment. In reality, it’s celebration time! Three years of RadioradioX, and well over two years of this publication. Not to mention RadioSoulX in that […]

Let’s call this a cautionary tale. That said, it’s certainly nothing to lose sleep over. Literally. Opening question, do you, a loved one or a friend snore? When I say snore, I don’t mean the occasional “I got wasted and passed out” snore. No, I mean the loud as Penn Station snore. The kind that […]

A couple issues back I did a “Hail and Farewell” to WGY’s Chuck Custer, upon retiring after thirty-six-years with the company. Bye Chuck, and hi Doug Goudie, who partners with Kelly Lynch on News Radio 810/103.21 WGY. Doug’s not Chuck, Chuck’s not Doug, Kelly is Kelly. I suggest you give them a try. The partnership […]

Howdy, hope 2021 will be better than 2020, but it’s a long way to go to get back to normal. I promise no politics, no this party/that party, no this president/that president, no liberal/conservative. This concentrates on COVID, going forward, it’s up to US to bring back normalcy, for YOU to get off your ass […]

Welcome back my friends to the column that never ends. (Sorry, been listening to some ELP lately) I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for 2021! 2020 has been such a s**t show, at times you think you had enough, then WHAM, bend over and take so more. At times, when I […]

Welcome back to the topic of the month, from a man facing reality, and yet I feel while you may not identify with the topic now, you will, sooner or later. And frankly, it sucks. This issue, we focus on two parts of my name, cranky and old. As I mentioned earlier, I have been […]
