Oldies 84,the ninety-year-old Bob Allison still has a radio gig . I remember "Friendly" Bob Allison from his WWJ days in the mid-60's. I'd love to talk to him about his opinion of today's radio industry,as I'm sure ol' Bobby has seen such in his 65 or so years on the air.
I’m sure Mr. Allison shares the same feelings along with the rest of us older people about the state of the business.

WNZK needs to give Crystal the entire morning show 6-10 time slot, It would be good for Miss Mayo and WNZK, They need to market her show, They could get a small amount of ad revenue. Crystal is a musically talented personality. And Innate you have brought Crystal up before, So we’re on the right track in saying this is a decent program and a talented individual.
Sima Birach doesn’t “give” time slots away. It’s pay to play. He doesn’t provide any marketing of programming or station. Marketing of any type is the choice of the purchaser of the air time. They pay for it.

Bob Allison has had a portion of that daypart purchased for decades.
Maybe someone at Mix 92.3 or Kiss FM 105.9 or Even Hot 107.5 WGPR should look this Crystal Mayo up and perhaps give her a try for a Sunday Morning Retro Show, I think she’s worth it.
Miss Crystal surely would have a bigger audience on any of the aforementioned stations and probably a few others, too!

I remember Bob Allison's hosting "Bowling FOR Dollars,but did Chuck "Buck" Walby replace him and was Blatz Beer a sponsor ?

stopnswop,"Bowling For Dollars" was hosted by Bob Allison in the late 60's and there was a sub host called Chuck "Buck" Walby. Those are not ramblings by Cowboy or anyone else .

You might be confusing nicknames. Bob Allison's on-air persona certainly always was/is, friendly.
There was also heavy advertising in that era for radio listeners to call "Friendly Bob Adams ®," the fictional front for moneylender HFC, Household Finance Company.
