Topics of general interest that just don't fit anywhere else.
Don Imus is dead. Hopefully is deplorable fans aren't far off.
Do you remember the first days of VH-1 ? Imus was on as a VJ. They even played Dean Martin songs. It was pretty unique, but that was 1985 or so, and music video stations actually played music videos, and the Weather Channel was actually weather. How I long for the 'real' channels and not the unrecognizable monsters that they became.
