For a while KNX had "Radio Hall of Fame" one or two nights a week following their "Drama Hour." But Mr. Amari, how much of Frank Sinatra as "Rocky Fortune" do you think we need?
i think Carl Amari got a kick out of one of his favorite singers starring in an old time radio show. in case anyone doesn't know who he is, Carl Amari is the owner of Radio Spirits who as legend has it, started collecting OTR as a hobby and it expanded into the multi-faceted business it is today. "Radio Hall of Fame" is the show WMAQ replaced Freberg's "When Radio Was" with. But, soon afterward, Amari's show was off WMAQ too. Bob Gibson did "Radio Theatre" on KMOX before "When Radio Was" started to air in that time-slot...i remember that from a year or so ago when the change took place.
