Hopefully another station picks up what was started at WRXP, no one wants to listen to Lady Gaga on every station or Listen to Fat Mike Francesa snore on FM, he should stay on AM.

When you've lived the life Mick Jagger has led, that's the way you look when you're 68. I suspect that the only way a publication could be sued for an illustration is if it used a doctored photo, and even then I doubt it.

Ed, thanks for "consulting" me on this piece but the theme is getting old.

Between Merlin's desperate need for cash and CBS's desire to find an FM home for WFAN, this had nothing to do with the rock format. "The new WRXP" was just a couple months old - not established enough to even be considered as a major player. And Merlin telegraphed early that the format was just a hold card until something better came along - in this case, a new owner.

Oh, and you have to lose that awful picture of Mick Jagger before he sues you.

Thanks for thinking of me.
