Ron @ KGO 810 AM ,

Sane ”middle roader”

If you want ”sanity” join Ronn Owens everyday on KGO. It's great to still hear him way up here in the PNW. (Actor Burtie Renolds favorite radio host)

Ronn Owens is the best!

I've been listening to Ronn Owens for decades. Now I can listen to his show on podcasts ... wonderful, I never miss show now and can even listen to them again. Thanks KGO.

Much nice listening to the Ronn Owens Report where the whole show is condensed down to a single contiguous podcast. Agree or disagree, Ronn's opinion is always worth considering.
