    You had to ask the funny-talking plumber, if he’s the guy on the radio, about radio used to be’s? There’s more to this story than what you wrote, so I hope someday you’ll dig deeper and write a more Hearne-like column.

    Some of them had excuses but when I ran into the “funny-talking plumber” – who is actually one of the town’s most prolific follower of live classic rock acts worldwide, he put it in perspective. Yeah, Skid, Poessiger, Randy Raley, Jon Hart and lots of behind-the-scenesters were there.
    But a lot of mighty big guns were MIA on this deal. Perhaps they needed more lead time to clear their schedules.

    Ahh… back when radio didn’t suck and they weren’t all owned by two huge corporations. Back in 1986 at their old studio (where Fox 4 is now) Randy Railly let me and my other 16 year old friends in one night, let us drink beer and play songs. Kids don’t get to do that kind of stuff anymore. They have also never heard corporate radio that doesn’t suck. Miss those days.We went another time and Von Mack called the cops on us ha ha.

    Radio is an unforgiving business and all of these old-timers want to be forgiven. No dice. You better bring something fresh every day, or you better own a piece of the station…. See Kevin Kietzman.

    How sad it is that you write about washed up local DJs like it would be of interest to anyone. I know your best days were in the late 80s, Hearne…but the rest of the world has moved on. Or, as you might say, using a phrase that shows how tragically out of touch you are with 2010, “honey, puh-llleeease.”

    Yeah Hearne quit writting about Holly Starr,Johnny Dare,Mankow,twenty year old strippers,Lewis Black,Suzzanna Lee,Tiger Woods,all these past it folks. Next thing you know you will be doing stories on some local guy or gril who is doing a new tv show or movie.

    I think he has to write about what is going on mostly in KC news and KC people, so maybe, just maybe thats not always a ton of folks, as people point out to me, “Craig its not LA or New York.” Guess thats Hearne’s fault too.

    P.S. Max wanted his fans to know he will be at Stanfords Friday at 745 to see Bobby Slayton.

    LA and New York are not that much different from here. I go to both places often, particularly LA and it is the same as here. Whatever your vocation, people recognize it if you are bringing it. When Glazer talks people listen… why? Because he refuses to be irrelevant. When he stays relevant… it is good for business. I have met a few of these old timer radio people… nice people. But it is not age that got them. They got lazy and felt entitled. They want to be the Star every day. Do you think Jack Nicholson has it easy? That dude works his tail off to stay relevant and get roles. He doesn’t rest. If it was that easy, everyone would do what he does.. Sue the station? What… Numbers baby… Numbers… Bring the numbers. It doesn’t matter if you are a radio dude, an actor, or sell frozen french fries to restaurants. You better bring it every day. Sales cures all ills baby.

    Craig Glazer: If you think Dave Matthews isn’t “past it,” you’re in the same sad state as Hearne.

    I think rainbow man made the best point on this subject ever…using Jack Nicholson as example: you need to be in it and on top of your game all the time or leave the game. A local example is Len Dawson, no he is not hip, but man that guy shows up everywhere he can in sports, on tv, paper, superbowl, it keeps him younger and relivent. Yes he is a 70’s plus man, but is one of our highest profile people

    So yes this is a good point, we stay in the news and matter by being a part of it when possible. I made this comment to Hearne recently, though Dare and I are middle aged and he is l2 years younger then I am, people don’t look at that much cause we are always addressing what is going on now, right or wrong and rarely say “boy back in my day” though we often would like too.

    You do also need to stay in shape and look your best, again something I work hard on as does Dare and it is a major factor. Sorry John, to bring it up, but Dare is in the gym six days a week, runs five miles a day, is 6’l” and keeps his weight below l90, he is trim and lean, makes him look ten years younger. I work out five days a week myself and do all I can to stay in top shape, all this keeps you on top of your game. Another example would be Tanna Guthrie now on KUDL, she is great, great shape, works out daily and diets hard…but none of us will beat the clock, we just slow it down some.

    P.S. I didn’t mention Dave Mathews.

    Maybe if Max had treated people right in the past more would have shown.

    So who is this Bob Hamilton Plumbing? I’ve read his name everywhere it seems and I don’t know who he is.
