Bill Whathisname, source of nearly a dozen polite chuckles over a 20-year career from humorous anecdotes lifted straight from the pages of McCall's and Redbook magazines about things husbands do that drive their wives crazy, like not straightening the duvet cover, is going to retire in 2 weeks. Alert your grandparents.

No word yet on whether the lady with the nasally "tra-affic" reports will continue to provide her sixteen-times an hour updates of a slowing on I-40 in Johnston County near the US70 bypass, or the other one, about whom it is only known that she is "really tall," will continue.

I love Bill and Lynda in the morning. They are about what I can handle when I roll out of bed at 5:55 a.m. and get 3 kids ready for school in record breaking time.

You seem to have a high level of knowledge to go along with strangely intense level of dislike!

LOL...some people have to find SOMETHING to complain about!!!

I am NOT a morning person but the last thing I want to hear in the morning is talk radio! I do not care for anyone chatting about things that don't interest me and I hate to hear them giggling like little girls! So...I don't even know who this guy is!!!

But...since I don't like any type of talk radio...I just avoid that station!!!

Vicki

Wow, G105 has really taken a step back.

Haha I used to dislike their show but it's grown on me. It can be a refreshing break from doom and gloom political news on NPR in the morning.

excellent. I have never been able to listen to that show for more than a minute but I do like what little I know of Lynda Loveland. Her mom blog is amusing and she is usually very funny and very real. I chatted with her for a few minutes the other day at the Harlem Globetrotters and she was friendly.

The man stayed on the air at the same station for over 20 years in a very tough business that is completely ratings driven. It seems to me that by any standard he was successful. It is quite obvious that some transplants have to find something to complain about. Lewis Grizzard(most transplants have no idea who Mr Grizzard is)said it best when he said that Delta is ready when you are. I-95 and Greyhound run north every day. The Ole North State- love it or leave it.
