Radio, the once great spoken word medium
I did a Facebook post about how I liked Steve Allen, a true wit and multi talented performer. I said he's one of many TV greats who got their start in radio. Johnny Carson, too.
Ask anyone age 75 or younger about a favorite radio station and they'll say it plays good songs.
At 85, I have no common frame of reference with younger persons that lets me talk about radio as a great spoken word medium. They do podcasts and call it radio but it's not the real thing.
