Thanks for another spot on analysis Richard. Some may remember that the NAB Radio Show originated as the RPC - the Radio Programming Conference. The best creative minds in the business came together, and wrestled with real issues. Great stuff. Unfortunately GM's hated their PD's traveling and having fun, so more and more GM's started showing up...then the corporate types and pretty soon it started to feel like it could have been a convention of life insurance brokers. Oh well.
