Obit: Your Leeeeeeeeadah...

If there is such a thing as a great disc jockey, the recently-deceased Jack Armstrong was one.

It's especially sad that Armstrong in his later years found his own career options limited and wondered whether the industry still had a place for him. Meanwhile, we turn on the radio and the lack of real talent is so evident that even the industry puff piece publications no longer bother to ignore it.

Some may blame de-reg, but I believe it goes to a deeper, uglier issue: our culture's ever-increasing worship of mediocrity.

R.I.P. Jackson…
