OK, I’m going to date myself here (and I’m a cheap date). Do any of you long-time Nashvillians remember an obscure talk show that was on at night on WTN, long before Gaylord owned the station. In fact, I think this the period when the station was in bankruptcy, as George Plaster never lets us forget.
Anyway, the show may have been the most unique I ever heard. It was hosted by a retired police officer, and various aspects of crime, law enforcement, and other law and order subjects were discussed. The show also did something fascinating: twice an hour, a police dispatcher would break into the broadcast, and tell all the current calls the police were on. They made it sound like a real dispatcher’s call. Believe it or not, it was compelling radio.
It was the coolest thing ever to my 2nd shift working, young adult mind. I miss it.
Does anybody remember what the name of the show was, and who hosted it?
