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.
I didn’t realize you had a friendship with him RonC. I always felt like I knew him, because I spent so much time listening to him, and then met him a few times.
Sorry for your loss bud. I will share it with you.
Radio gets pushed to the back most of the time, but guys like Briem and Putnam made it clear there is still a big need for radio, especially talk radio.
Briem did it better than just about anyone. He was a gentleman. Didn’t get quite as passionate on the air as others, but he sure got his point across.
RonC, while we’re talking about Briem and Putnam, we should also mention Terry Anderson. His show was more short lived than the other two men, but he had a message to get out there and he did a good job of doing it. I respected him a great deal too.
For those who don’t know, Terry was a Black man that truly got it. He had a great big heart and a great family, boys who loved him a lot. I miss him also.
