She 'Pushed' My Friend Out
As I've said in previous posts, "Slam" Duncan has been a friend "since the turn of the century." I'd met "Slam" as a caller to the XM-Radio show he 'subbed' on: "The Dave Nemo Show." We became friends, talking several times a week as well on-air during the Sunday Nemo Show. As happens with the political 'ins-and-outs' of radio, Mr Duncan was quietly pushed out in favor of Marica (mar-SEE-aa) Campbell. Ms Campbell--to me--seemed unable to carry the show on her own, even with interested--and interesting--truckers calling in!!
Ms Campbell found her way into the pages of LandLine Magazine, a publication from Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA). As the story relates, after the merger of Sirius Satellite Radio and XM-Radio, the primary focus of the trucking channel became talk-info rather than music-gossip. Seems Ms Campbell had no place in the altered concept of "The Dave Nemo Show." She now hosts her own show--"The WSM All-Nighter"--on WSM 650 AM (http://www.wsmonline.com/).
As one who holds grudges for long, long periods of time, I've softened my opinion of Marcia Campbell. No longer is she the woman who pushed my friend off XM-Radio; she's the lady who serves to provide an important service to the nation's trucking industry!!
