25. I Used To Like WJR
I lived with my parents in Jackson, Michigan from 1968 to 1970 (at least when I was home from college), and WJR was the station I listened to.

I remember J. P. McCarthy being on in the morning. And I remember a number of other interesting programs on WJR.

I particularly remember first hearing Karl Haas' program Adventures in Good Music on WJR during that time; his show was on WJR from 10 to 11 AM. His show has since been syndicated, and I have enjoyed listening to his show in San Diego, CA (where I am now) and any place else over the years (i.e. until about 2 years ago, when the stations in San Diego carrying his program changed their format).

I feel sad about a beloved station like WJR (along with many other stations) now becoming a purveyor of hate and right wing sleaze.
