    4 more shows worth listening to on WLW.....sorry Matt.

    The article mentioned XM wanting Gary to come aboard. That would be cool if he would do a weekly show or something like that for XM.

    That could happen...Bozo still does a show for XM even though he's technically retired.

    Has WLW found a replacement for him?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Burbank is a REAL AMERICAN radio icon.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Thats my guess too.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I'm sad to see Gary go. He's been a rush hour friend for longer than I'd like to remember.

    Funny guy, great characters, and I wish him well.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Burbank was one of several Cincy broadcasters that made me want to get into broadcasting.

    When someone like Gary leaves, it's like losing an old friend.

    Here's to ya, old pal.
