RIP Bob Grant

I have been a fan of Bob Grant who is an institution in local NYC talk radio. Many of the top names in the business from Rush Limbaugh to Howard Stern have paid tribute to a poineer. Grant died at age 84. Somewhere in the afterlife he is probably saying to fans Get off my phone and Straight Ahead.

When he retired the first time I was stationed in Saint Albans VT. I actually drove home to NYC to hear the final show.

In the early 80's the most subversive thing one could do in a University was read the Eric Briendel NY Post and admit you listened to Bob Grant. Sadly, Grant is now gone but Mark Levin is the most like him stylistically. Levin had Grant as a guest multiple times and praised him highly. Oddly Howard Stern appeared multiple times on his farewell shows.
