You members of the NOSTALGIA club can eat my dust. "Remember When" radio was fun? Remember when...? Remember when...?

One day you'll be saying "I remember when I HAD A JOB, but the business outgrew me while I was looking in the rearview mirror.

Sad that there is no new talent to compare with Landecker, not to mention Robert W Morgan, The Real Don Steele, Doctor Don Rose, et al.

Tells you something about the state of radio these days.

And that something isn't good.

But, hey, in five years there'll be no car radios, either, so who cares, huh?

I was fortunate to work with Landecker back in the 80's as a traffic repoter and fill in news person on his show... Chicago G-106 (later WCKG). He was a creatively funny talent... Looking back, it was a great experience. So ad he's still in the business... Will definitely check out his book. Cathi Parrish

John's iconic "Boogie Checks" were always fun - what a great talent!

BTW, he's not the only "geezer" spinning records in Chicago. Dick Biondi, 15 years John's senior, is also playing the hits on 'LS-FM these days and drawing a fan base all over the country.

Any CHR-jock who is over 50 also has photographs of the station's ownership frolicking with livestock!
