The Toledoan #RIPDMC

Mayor Collins, my daughter and myself at an anti-bullying event in August.

While the city of Toledo lost its Mayor, I lost a friend.

The friendship between D. Michael Collins and myself, started when I was the executive producer of WSPD, 15 years ago.  Mike Collins was then President of the TPPA.  It was the golden era of Newstalk radio in Toledo– we had Carty Finkbeiner as our Mayor.   There was one proven method for generating great content, agitate Carty enough  where he felt compelled to call in.  If I had done my job right, Carty would ring the studio hotline at 8:45 AM, and request to speak to Morning Show Host, Mark Standriff.  The on-air conversations that would follow, are the things of legend.

Mike Collins was one of the best at making Carty pick up the phone.  It was a simple formula, book Mike, expect Carty. Read more ›

Rokicki: Mayoral Politics, 101

Written by: Nick Rokicki

 

There was a time, not long ago, that I loved snowstorms. I loved waking up to a sea of white, smelling the fresh air that seems to come with a blanket of snow. I even enjoyed shoveling the stuff… just something about digging in, sharing an experience with each neighbor I saw doing the same thing. Yes, a big snowstorm is definitely a shared experience. It’s the one time where we’re all in it together. When, in reality, we should have that feeling every day.

Yesterday felt familiar, didn’t it?

It was just 53 weeks ago, on a Sunday–that also had a Level 3 Snow Emergency for Lucas County,  when the city of Toledo was struck with tragedy and the loss of two of our bravest.

How fitting that today is Groundhog Day?  Read more ›

Grandpa Joe

Written by: Eric Shanteau

“Retired from work but not life”. This is the motto (and business card) that has been adopted and carried on and out by Mr. Joe W. Olman (a.k.a Grandpa Joe), one of the most amazing and interesting individuals I have ever met. This is a story about the love for life, the acknowledgement that every day is precious, and knowing that it’s never too late to value these notions. Read more ›
