Saturday, May 31, 2014 - The Last Show

This is the last Reeling In The Years on WRAS. I'm retiring from GSU shortly, so it's time. For this show you will forgive me as I pay tribute to my heroes - my family, coworkers and students who have made my time at GSU a dream job for the past 30 years. My highest professional honor has been to advise the students of WRAS and I appreciate their kindness to me over these many years. I have said it before to the students and I will say it again here, WRAS has the best group of students on campus. They will always be in my heart.

To the listeners of this show, I'm thinking of starting a channel on Live 365 but that will take time to develop. Check in to this blog in a few weeks to see what's in store. I'm thinking of an Atlanta-centered channel, a Southern Rock channel, or continuing with Reelin'. Let me know what you think.

So, thank you for listening and for sharing this great catalog of music with me. As Bob Hope said, thanks for the memories.

(I'll be attending Capt' Herb Emory's memorial service this morning, so please enjoy this rebroadcast. I had the pleasure of serving with Herb on the board of the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame last year. He was a much beloved traffic reporter in Atlanta for many years. I tried my hand at traffic reporting in the early 1980s, working with Officer Jerry Price, the man who preceded Herb at WSB-AM. It is a tough job with stress-inducing hours. Herb also had the honor of having the highest "Q Ratings" in Atlanta radio - which means people really loved him. Cap'n, don't forget to report all the ladders in the roads up in heaven...even if they are paved with gold...)
