Orphanage of R&R's comment from a 2018 show implied John Monroe's got history on air either from before archiving or another station. Anybody clue me in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/29/19 10:34am TheLoneliestMonk:

@LR john was at WFDU, he inherited the Sat night slot after jim riecken's premature demise
  Fri. 11/29/19 10:37am Daybreak and EVERYTHING!:

Oh man I like Indian summer, the season and the song.
  Fri. 11/29/19 10:39am Daybreak and EVERYTHING!:

I thought I would be the only one but a few of you clicked favorite just now.
  🎃 Fri. 11/29/19 10:40am Listener Robert:

Thanks, Monk. By "demise", do you mean as in Xs over the eyes, cooling to room temperature, or just "radio demise"?

I wouldn't know from WFDU unless it was pre-1985 or so.
  Fri. 11/29/19 10:41am Gary:

Great show John. Nice to hear you again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/29/19 10:41am TheLoneliestMonk:

@LR no, it was an oncology death.
very sad.
whole station went into a weekend of morning after he passed.
he had been there since 1980

  🎃 Fri. 11/29/19 10:42am Listener Robert:

Wow, that means I probably DID listen to the late Mr. Necken in the early 1980s, and just didn't remember the name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 11/29/19 10:43am TheLoneliestMonk:

his show was called 'the defective jukebox'

@LR he used to introduce himself as, 'yer ol' pal, Jim",
if that rings a bell
  🎃 Fri. 11/29/19 10:55am Listener Robert:

Uh, could that be where a certain someone we know got his "Ol' Pal" slogan?

However “intellectuals are the shoeshine boys of the elite” does have a pretty great ring to it and implies that no one gives the intellectuals any attention, unless of course they’ve missed a spot.

What I meant, Mr. Monk, was that it rang a bell tuned slightly differently. That's all I'll say now, sorry.

That shouted year chorus is freaky. If I remember correctly a lot of the type of announcement chorus was all over the 80’s (and prob earlier) or am I just reliving some long forgotten childhood nightmare from “1982!”
  Fri. 11/29/19 11:24am simonpeter:

I'm thinking of a coach for Arsenal who needs a job. Has a great resume. He's french and wears a giant winter coat
