Get caught up with radio blabbermouth and my former Morning Co-Host at Dallas’ KDGE-FM John Ford.

We talk about technology, the evolution of radio, a touch of politics, racy bits we did on the air years ago (that we can’t do today) and of course, a lot of music! John is also publishing this interview on his podcast simultaneously.
