Recently I was amazed at how NO names in SF broadcasting are familiar to me any more.
(Well, I did quit in 2000, but 15 years later it is "cleaned out"?)
It seems to me the old days were more consistently stable. Hell, Ira Blue was on KGO radio
forever "sports...talk from the Hungry I...even his radio show --- I ON THE TOWN"
McElhatton was on KCBS for years, then over to KPIX...(anyone remember Dave's piano player
and Second Banana, Friendly Clyde? Don Sherwood on the original KSFO, and the guys
at KYA, followed by a bombshell KFRC, and the carbon-copy failure trying to rock and roll...
KNBR? Ratings for years belonged to KSFO, KCBS, and a hodgepodge of third-place
stations - KGO, KNBR, and even KABL - like a strand of pearls strung across the Bay...
And, I am certainly on your side in the enormous invasion of commercials (I try to watch
news on TV, but when a commercial comes on, I switch stations -- no good, they are ALL
running spots at the same time.
