Spotlight Conversations
The Ron Parker interview
Show Notes

Texas Radio Hall of Famer and SiriusXM radio personality Ron Parker is in the studio with me today, talking about radio up and down the dial - and every city in between! Ron discusses 60's and 70's music, those 80’s radio promotions with MTV, his stint at ABC Radio Networks in Dallas; programming KKBQ and KLDE in Houston; along with gigs at KFRC in San Francisco, WLS Chicago and WCBS FM in New York. We also talk about the radio DJ's who inspired us as kids: he with New York radio legend Cousin Brucie (Bruce Morrow) and mine - Boom Boom Brannigan of WPTR in upstate New York. So with all these stories, is a book about the radio biz in the works for Ron? He definitely has a title for it! Tune in and find out from this award winning radio personality and program director.

About the Spotlight Conversations podcast:

Join me as I invite friends inside my cozy linoleum free recording studio to talk all about media. Could be radio, television, audiobooks, music, film, voiceovers - if they've worked in media, we're talkin'! Unscripted and nearly always entertaining, each guest gets real about their careers in the entertainment biz; from where they started to how it's going. Join us in the studio where drinks are always on ice; music + media are the conversation starters. New episodes every other Tuesday. Thanks so much for listening! - Donna
