After 40 years of broadcasting? The way I heard it he was on WQUT from 76-82 and then again 04-present. Hold on a minute... let me count my jumping beans here.... 2,3....6,7.... that only adds up to 12 years total. How does anyone come up with 40 years?

Good point. How indeed does one arrive at 40 years?

You come up with 40 years when you start believing your own bs.

How does an impostor retire in the first place? I think it is well established that the original Rambler passed away long ago. Yes, if he were the true Rambler, his last 20 years of broadcasting would have been done from the grave. Anyhow, I'm glad this fake is packing his bags.

This is no surprise because far too many formerly loyal fans have lost interest and jumped ship after seeing thru the bullsh*t.

True statement. His message board used to be very active with interesting and entertaining posts. He had fans posting from all around the region and also from more distant places such as Florida and Texas and one regular was from Alaska. Over the last 3 or 4 years the message board activity slowly declined as fewer fans posted and the regulars seemed to slowly fade away. I talked to a few of them by e-mail and all said they lost interest because there was too much bs and backstabbing going on. Another one felt the whole Rambler thing had great potential but was mismanaged from the beginning. Some people have posted that this guy isn't even the real original Rambler.

Words of wisdom offered by one of the Tennessee Midnight Rambler's finest remaining message board regulars. Such attitude is exactly why so many became so few.

Kim Stone was an awesome DJ and she did it without any of this Midnight Rambler silliness. She left the station around 2008 to move on to bigger and better things.

Now that I think about it I believe it was around 2005-2006 when Kim left WQUT. Shortly afterwards I heard she was doing some kind of internet broadcasting but I never was able to find her online.

Thanks for the update. I just wondered what happened to her. I always thought she did a good job!
