Goodnight, Larry.

One of the better things about moving to Buffalo is that I can still get WBZ on the radio after dark. There's still something unique about that station, in that it hasn't been completely taken over by the Rush crowd.

Sheesh, rocket88, I even looked it up before I posted it. It means "a tiny version of Mentos," which describes Bergeron to a T.

I can still sing the "Glicknik" song. That was good radio.

Also, the converse of "mentor" is clearly "telemachus". Kids today.

I grew up listening to Larry Glick. He truly was my favorite of all the WBZ hosts. Even when he had to do afternoons he did them well. Man. Bad year for radio legends all around.
