On GH Rick Springfield was gonna be Replaced...

If you know my Radio Show background I have a Ton of Stories from My Almost  50 Years  on the Radio..This is one is for My Long Time Friend and Operation Manager here @Scripps, Steve Hunter, Well, I was working in LA Radio it was 1982..I was on Power-106 Mornings, and, I was ask to go to Lunch with 3 Producers of GH(general hospital the soap)..they wanted to  discuss Rick Springfield leaving GH and wanted me to step in that Role..Well, it was a Great Lunch(I never turn down a free Lunch in LA are you kidding me), I also had a Morning Show in Dallas (top-40 what else)and a TV Video Countdown Show, Acting and Radio have been in my Blood since I was 7 years old, But, My Manager was Jack Gilardi of ICM,(close friend of my Dad's),and, well I turned down The Gh Offer and went to Dallas, (john shomby of kafm-fm does not even know of this one)...My Dad was Pissed at me for a Year...(because he worked @Universial Studios for 44 years)He was a Musician(played 7 instruments), way, all his friends gave him crap about my Choice....So, when, I play Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield that Recall comes rushing back..Oh, And, By the way I have introduced Rick Spring field and we have never met..too LOL!
