THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM, I GUESS…

THE NEWS WAITS FOR NO MAN!

THE NEWS WAITS FOR NO MAN!

Today was kind of a quiet day on the show and I imagine that was a good thing.  Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day and who knows what may end up happening on the big program.  I guess you’ll just have to tune in to see what happens.   Maybe something good…maybe something bad.  Only time will tell.  Of course, maybe we’ll just be too tired to really do anything anyway.  Ya gotta love morning radio!  A strange mix of information, entertainment and unnecessarily large amounts of coffee!

DETROIT RADIO WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!

From FREEP.COM:

So long, baaaby!

Arthur Penhallow, the deep-voiced DJ who has been a fixture at WRIF-FM (101.1) for 39 years, has parted ways with the station.  But the legendarily rowdy personality who helmed the afternoon drive at Detroit‘s signature rock station said Monday he’s not ready for retirement just yet.  According to a WRIF press release Monday afternoon, the station said it was moving on without Penhallow, variously known as Arthur P, the Grand Poobah and Big Daddy. Along with being the station’s most senior employee, Penhallow was a signature voice (and sometimes face) for WRIF’s commercials and marketing promotions — particularly the booming catchphrase baaaby!

Penhallow referred to his time at the station as “39 charmed years.”  “I’m sad to be leaving, for sure,” he added. “But I’m leaving with all my honor, dignity and integrity.”

APRIL FOOL’S DAY TOMORROW, WATCH OUT!

Hold on, gang, we’ll see you all tomorrow!  Be sure to wear your raingear!
