Nice book John, and great looking cover David, a lot went on behind the scene’s of WMMS, and John does a great job telling us about it. The last chapter is sad how it all fell apart by others who thought they new better…WMMS will always be the STATION when I was growing up. Thanks for alot of memories and good times. “Your still in Buzzardland with this book” jim d
The recently posted cartoon panel of Boom’s parking garage experience (an example of how the inside stuff is always the best) spurred a thought that hadn’t previously occurred to me: One of many reasons Len Goldberg was perfect as the “voice” of WMMS was because it reflected Cleveland in a way that may not have been obvious at the time. By that I mean Len’s voice was somewhat tough and gritty but, thinking back, at the same time had an underlying sophistication in it. Similarly, from its evolution from a city of great industrial strength to its current troubles, Cleveland has always had a tough appearing shell but at the same time a very sophisticated, progressive and innovative side as well.
Maybe reaching a bit but just thought I’d put that out there.
