    They didn't actually come out and say it. . But he was talking about the old days. . Multiple log books. . Driving for 36 hours straight by using drugs etc.

    Basically all the good/bad things that old timers call the good ol days. . The things that put a black eye on the trucking industry.

    I loved listening to his stories. .I got up early on Sundays just to tune him in. . And his poems really struck home. . He more than once brought a tear to my eye.

    I was truly disappointed this past Sunday when I tuned in and found him gone.

    Wish Dave Nemo would reconsider.

    The "DJ" claimed it was a Dave Nemo corporate decision. .I can only imagine the closed door meetings. . Anyway, Lmao. .I literally change the channel away from Nemo and the chick/guy during morning hours through the week. . They make my skin crawl listening to them. .

    Stray Dog is the only person I actively tuned my radio to other than away from.

    He was the only reason I ever listened to that channel. Those two from NYC are clueless, I can't stand them! I'll be canceling and will let them know why not that it matters.

    I have often wondered about the huge audience they claim to have and if they really have the majorities best interest at heart. Ron was the closest link to a trucker on the whole channel. It does seem like a very small pool of callers that make the airwaves.

    I do not think the good old days gave trucking a black eye , I believe it is the new breed Professional drivers that have and are giving trucking a black eye.
