Neighbor of Dick Biondi

Hello Scott,

I’ve been meaning to write you for a while to say how much I enjoy the Chicago radio tribute sites you’ve put together, especially the history of WLS. What great memories! The great rock radio of the 60’s & 70’s can’t be beat, and your WLS site documents it so well. Thank you for all the time and effort it took to research and compile it. I grew up in Evanston and lived next to Dick Biondi when he was at WLS in the 60’s. That whetted my early interest in radio. Eventually I became a jock and later a newsguy in Indiana, Tennessee, Iowa and here in Denver for many years.

Incidentally, when Dick was my neighbor in Evanston, his General Manager, Gene Taylor, lived in the townhouse next door to him (one block north of Main on Dodge Ave). According to my mom, they discovered by chance that they lived next to each other!
