Wild Wally (Mike Schneider) was the morning man at WPFB “The Rebel” in Middletown (Dayton/Cincinnati market) for over 18 year WPFB sold out to Northern Kentucky University and is now a part of National Public Radio.  So what about the good old days when radio was local and the morning drive and afternoon drive times were filled with local talent kibitzing, playing the hot licks of the day, interviewing local people and artists and making your journey in and out a great time. All gone! In the old days you could own 6 radio stations but all that changed when big business got the FCC to allow owners to have as many stations as they wanted. That’s right, no limitations and they started buying up station after station. One DJ in Texas could
broadcast to the whole country.

Come hear Wally talk about radio where it was and where it going on Thursday, April 14 at 7:30 a.m. in the Man Cave at Heather’s Coffee & Café. Some of you old timers in the Dayton area might remember Wally World on the Big WAZOO back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Wally’s a single parent to 4 young extremely active boys that keep him running and jumping all week long. Wally makes his home here in Springboro.
