Conventional Speaking

This past week I spent some time at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention. While I enjoyed browsing the dealer room and was tempted to spend some money getting my picture taken in a replica of the TARDIS from Doctor Who, my main purpose for coming was to interview radio historian Jim Widner. Though we had a hard time finding a quiet(-ish) place to talk, we ultimately had a great chat not just about Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar but also the later years of network radio. Not surprisingly, Bob Bailey's portrayal of the title character was a central topic as seen in this brief clip.
