Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Feb 5, 2007




Detroit Free Press:

Tuesday is a big day for Bob Allison, now 74. From 9 to 11 a.m. on WNZK-AM (690), he'll mark the 45th anniversary of his "Ask Your Neighbor" program. Ah, memories. "We used to be the No. 1-rated show in the mid-'60s when mothers were less a part of the workforce and tuned us in to talk about things as if it were over the backyard fence," Allison said in a chat passed along by Len Malysz, husband of nutritionist-registered dietitian Theresa Malysz, a regular guest. "Neighbor" was born Feb. 6, 1962, on WWJ-AM (950), when talk radio was more an experiment than a full-fledged radio format... 'Ask Your Neighbor' show is 45- (Mon, 2/5)
