We would be remiss if we didn't take a moment today to pause and say thank you and "Happy Trails" to one of our own -- the talented Don Barrett, who is ending his long-running and popular industry website, Even if you hadn't worked in the Los Angeles market, Don's terrifically in-depth stories of the people behind the mic -- and behind the scenes -- both current and market legends -- really brought these talented and dedicated radio pros to life. Launched in 1997, was -- and is -- a phenomenal radio fan resource, and throughout the years Don always cared for his baby with an obvious love of this business that always shown through.
On July 15, Don posted his final column, and we urge you to read it... then scroll down the page and see the incredible amount of love and support his audience has shown him over the years. Godspeed, Don, and we look forward to our paths crossing again in the near future. -- Your fan, Kevin Carter, the Ramp newsletter
