Paul Wilson: Randy Miller – Gone in 60 Seconds?

1382267_10202144657167584_741927335_nI know what FYI writer Tim Engle wrote about deejay Randy Miller in the Star

About the two guys who own a couple small time radio stations in and around Warrensburg who were willing to let Randy do whatever he wanted. I know what Hearne said about Randy in his story and that he told me Randy was talking last Friday about it being his last day on 98.5 FM The Bar.

I know that basically that Randy wanted to come back to radio and to do it all again. I even commented on the story giving Randy my full support – not that he needs it – because I totally could see where he was coming from.

Syndicate it, given some time, do a different toned down version of his old show, eventually from his home studio in Lone Jack maybe. 

But after hearing rumors to the contrary – that things may not be all rainbows and unicorns in Millers world – I called The Bar this morning since I’m in Warrensburg for the week anyway.

Sure enough, I talked to Maggie at the station and she confirmed That Randy’s gone.

1396028_2226124651354_1827245809_nNo reason, no elaboration on his choice or the station’s, just that “he left.”

Plain and simple.

No BS about him leaving to pursue other interests – no nothing – just… he left.

So now what’s next and when will we hear the rest of the story?

0_80b600c3cd3494e8a4c494affbdaba4dTurns out Hearne texted Randy earlier and asked about him staying with The Bar.

“Not sure,” was Randy’s response.

Asked further about his so-called plans to syndicate his show, Randy responded, “We might.”

Did Randy quit or get fired?

Crickets.

    Things that make you go “Hmmmmm……..”

    Odd. Likely there was no real money in it and Randy just didn’t see the value. First guess. I don’t know where Miller lives, add too long a drive? Sounds like it was a real small market, not Millers style. Who knows.

      Actually, Randy sold his South Joco estate and bot some land out east, so the drive was somewhat a positive.

    Amazingly Clyde Clifford from The Mighty 1090, KAAY, lasted into this century. And the Marconi Experiment’s Michael Tearson continues on satellite radio and radiothatdoesntsuck.com

    Only the rocks live forever.

    Shortwave Tijuana radio is where it is at these days.
