Wednesday with Bob & Ray – Down The Byway

For nearly 45 years Bob and Ray entertained millions of radio listeners and television viewers. Bob and Ray’s long partnership began at Boston radio station WHDH in 1946 when Goulding, after delivering the news on Elliott’s music program, began to stick around and swap anecdotes with the host. Listeners demanded more, however, and the station soon scheduled Matinee with Bob and Ray. It offered offbeat comments on the day’s news, fables about fictitious characters and bogus contest offers.

TODAY, “Down The Byway” in Elk Horn, Kentucky, Farley Gerard interviews a proud printshop owner who prints replicas of United States currency…

The KOMO/KCPQ Combo

Seattle will have at least 2 TV stations owned by SINCLAIR, once this merger takes effect. KOMO 4 and KCPQ 13. The others, Joe TV KZJO and Univision will likely be sold off. Lay-offs should be expected by employees at both KOMO & KCPQ. SINCLAIR runs a lean operation. The motto for employees should be “more work for less.” Other corporate mergers are in the pipeline. The remaining TV channels could flip under new ownership and we might also see some rotation of network affiliations. Lennie the Cabbie says FOX might buy some of their affiliate stations to wrest control from SINCLAIR, which will have a huuuuge number of FOX affiliates in their fold post-merger. Could happen…Radio stations in Seattle and WGN Chicago might be sold off. SINCLAIR’s main focus is obviously on television. [pun intended]

A Change Is Gonna Come

Rachel Maddow is creaming her boxer shorts over the Sally Yates testimony – any hint that Trump could be in trouble makes Rachel’s nipples hard. MSNBC is as blatantly LEFT as FOX News Channel is RIGHT…I envision a news hub for Sinclair stations, positioned in Seattle, feeding KOMO, KCPQ and stations in cities such as Portland…(write that down)…Local TV news anchors have got to stop goofing off on Facebook and on TV. The news should be taken seriously by professionals who behave in a manner befitting a “journalist.” If they want to host a cartoon show, they need to put on the red noses…Walter Cronkite would just fire the whole bunch of them…First, ENTERCOM & CBS Radio, now SINCLAIR & TRIBUNE MEDIA. 2017 will be an interesting year for radio and TV. Seattle personalities need to have resumes up to date and be flexible. A change is gonna come… [cue the Sam Cooke record…]
