Briem was a class act. He was a great advocate during the Clinton nightmare. His bumper music was the best ever, 1930s swing, jazz, and other. I will continue to miss him being on the radio.
During the years of my divorce, I spent a lot of time listening to Briem in the middle of the night. His slot was midnight to 7:00am.

RIP, Ray Briem. You were really something.

I talked with him a couple times on the air, and saw him in person at the fundraiser for Rogan’s reelection campaign.
He was one of the good guys.

Oh, my. I met Ray and got started with political limericks on his show. One night he asked for a limerick about Paula Jones. So I got this on the air:
That Paula, he thought, was some filly
When pants dropped, she thought him quite silly
But then later she’d file
And he soon lost his smile
He shouldn’t have whipped out old Willie
I then did a limerick almost every day incorporating his word of the day and he read it on the air.
RIP, my friend. What a great voice he was for truth and freedom.

Ray was a friend that I will deeply miss. We exchanged books quite a few times, and he always loved to 'buzz' my workplace
in his plane. (Those are '32 meter' antennas, about 105 feet across, top edge up there about '10 stories' tall.)
Because I listened to his show after getting off work at midnight, I heard him talking about the place one night and I called him to tell him what it was all about. That led to our first 2AM meeting in KABC's studios in the mid-80's.
He was a lot of fun to talk to, and was among the greatest of all politically active conservatives.

IIRC, he was also big on amateur radio, RIP, Mr. Briem, SK.

Attention Southern Californians
Please ping me with any Southern California related articles. Thank you!
If you want on or off this ping list, please FReepmail me.
Sad to hear of Ray's passing. I had listened to him on KABC from the late 60's onward.
He was truly Mr. Conservative and would frequently phone "T.A.S.S." (the Soviet Unions's former national news agency) early in the morning and have some great shoot-out discussions (freedom vs. communism) with the Russian agent.
Does anyone remember the Russians name?
Ray was also a private pilot in his spare time and was a good friend of the late, former Marine & tv-talk show host, Joe Pyne (also a private pilot).
Rest in peace Ray.

I didn’t hear Briem very often because I was usually asleep while he was broadcasting. But when I did, I especially enjoyed him when he crossed swords with lefties who would regularly call in such as Lefty Louie, Lefty Louise, Moscow Mary, and the Documentation Person, aka Doc. Louie, Mary and Doc also called George Putnam’s show during the afternoon.
