    Too bad there isn’t another talk host at KDKA that will be remembered 20 years from now……..the current crop makes everyone remember the good old days

    Hi Robin,

    You have our condolences and sympathy. We are sorry for your loss. Your father was a wonderful man and he will be missed.

    When I was a kid I spent what seemed like a lifetime at Perry and Elaines house. I feel so bad that I never stayed in touch over the years to let them see how my life progressed and how their family grew. Perry you are already in heaven.
