  1. It sounds like Roma was downplaying their salary. We have heard that they were well paid by WLS. So the wages may just not have been as hefty as she had wished, after 20 years with the station.

  2. She was out of her league in the middle of these two, but how else could you get so much out of Lujack. He ignored a couple of her questions. Wish there was more with these two. Great radio. You can tell that Lujack had a lot of respect for Don Wade. Loved listening to Don at KOL, then KTAC.
