POTW: Radio Ratings War (1985)

September 12, 2008 by

It's another trip back in time for this installment of the Picture of the Week.  Can you tell who those two guys are?  Here's a hint... it's a photo from the front page of the "Stars" section from the Syracuse Herald-American from 1985.

Haven't figured it out yet?  It's Rick Gary and Big Mike!  Here's a look at the entire page.  And you can click on the image to see it even closer-up with more detail.

Of course, the war is long over -- the two Syracuse radio veterans appear today on the same station, Galaxy's Sunny 102.1 (WZUN).  Big Mike handles morning drive, while Rick handles afternoon drive.  We found this pic on Big Mike's page on the Sunny 102 website... check it out for lots of other neat photos!
