REALLY NICE TO BE REMEMBERED
Remember my old station? So do
I and I am still trying to forget. But it seems that over there, the
biggest news story for 2007 was the firing of their long time morning
show and Sunday ethnic program host. The incident was barely 12 hours
old when the phone calls began pouring into my home, from friends and
fans who wanted to know if I had heard the news, and various media
outlets hoping I would supply a little insider dirt on the matter.
Wishing to keep those memories repressed and continue to work on my own
tell-all project, I respectfully declined any interviews.
As predicted, this "flush" didn't go over well
with the stations listeners, and editorials and angry letters began to
crowd the spaces in newspaper columns and web blogs alike. The calls to
my house and E-mails galore continued to pour in, directing me to read
this or check out that. To be frank, I went through pretty much the
same thing there and this current incident surprised me for barely a
But one of the E-Mails we got was from a big
Sock Hop fan, Ray in Milford. He E-Mailed (Executive Proucer) Larry
O'Neill and I with a copy of a letter that he intended to send to the
editor of the Connecticut Post, the big Bridgeport paper that already
had a slew of scathing letters hit the presses. I read Ray's letter and
assumed the folks at The Post wouldn't print it, or at least they would
edit out any reference to myself, Larry and the Sock Hop program. To
that end I give The Post a big "thumbs up" ..... they printed Ray's
letter practically verbatim! And they posted it right in the middle of
several other nasty-grams about my old station. THANKS RAY! My response
to the Editor is now in line.
We have taken the liberty of posting these
letters for you to read as well. You can read Ray's Letter To The Editor by itself
or read the entire column of
station bashing goodness that The Post was kind enough to
print. Please note I openly admit that the layout view of the Editoral
Page is NOT as it was printed by The Post, but graphically reworked to
remove unrelated material and to make it fit within the confines of
this website. However, not a single printed word contained therein was
in any way altered or changed.
