He's a nutcase that (even though he's a tad older than I) thinks much like I do !!

Good Luck, Randy !!

Re: “In the early '70s, Kansas City was young, high and horny, and everyone went to the Ballroom

I was but a kid of 14 living in Overland Park . The years between 67 to 70. I remember thumbing into KCMO a lot back then and hanging out in Westport at the head shop Tiny Tim's Magic circus OR as I better remember it as Fat Franks . It's where I bought my first ZAP comic book and Fringed stash pouch ( everyone remember all the suede fringe LOL ) . It was next to the very Underground gay bar ( The carousel ? ) Across the street was Uncle Sams hip clothing store .... Volkler Park on Sunday's was the place to be ! I remeber the Water melon festival in 69 I think, where Me and a female friend at the time, where crowned Mr. & Miss HAIR !!!! ( we were both young teens . she had hair almost to the ground . it was flaming red . And I could almost sit on mine )
I also remember the opening of Freedom Palace Concert hall ... It was really magnificent , an 18 lane old bowling ally turned into a slice of San Francisco. Fake grass on the floor with in house head shop and music store . I saw some amazing music there from the first row . Like Ike and Tina ... SteppinWolf . The MOST wonderful aspect of the Freedom Palace was the Light shows. They were so well done and all pretty much Live and by hand .. color wheels and film clips with colored oil squshing sheets and over head projectors . I will NEVER forget the light shows these guys did .... all of that was a good 45 years ago now . Wonderful memories . Been living in Boston now for 43 years

I only listen to XM radio. I choose what I want to listen to.

He has a good on air presence, but I sure wish he wouldnt play "the hits" from yesteryear.

He needs to dig deeper for the songs less played from whatever year his time machine takes him to.

The reason folks listen to KKFI's music programs is because they're so damned TIRED of hearing "the hits", or what was popular. Thats what I feel KKFI's listeners are trying to get away from.

But hey, its not my call. I'm just one man....with two ears

I love ya Randy, but please.....go deep. Deep.

Hey now, let's not throw Skid under the bus. He has paid his dues and is still doing his job well. I have known Skid since he first came to KC and I have known Randy for countless years also. Being a singer in KC and beyond I tended to stick with musicians and DJ's as my friends and they are still my friends even though I am no longer in the business. If you think you can do a better job then Skid Roadie, be my guest.

Great interview --- I listened to Raley in the 70s , he seemed to have some freedom in what songs he played and I enjoyed his show. Flash forward to present day: I wonder how Skid Roadie can even face himself in the mirror.
