I listened through about 4 songs and a commercial and never did hear him say anything. typical Clear Channel station, when they do hire talent they don’t let them say anything.June 14, 2011 at 3:31 pm #1422RadioBuggieParticipant
Steve’s first show ended with a minute talk – calling it his ‘virgin voyage’ on the station,
sounding ‘tracked’ over the intro to Eagles ‘Hotel California’
The volume on this was also ‘low’; makes one wonder…June 14, 2011 at 3:49 pm #1423NotalentParticipant
