"What a kind, polite man he was. Anyone who met him off-the-air saw it instantly".
--Tom Sullivan on his friend, Rush Limbaugh
For those of us in the radio business, Rush Limbaugh's influence and importance simply can't be overstated. He completely transformed radio industry, paving the way for many--including The Armstrong & Getty Show. We all owe him a huge debt of gratitude for pioneering the space that we call Talk Radio.
Limbaugh passed away this morning at his home in Florida, following a battle with lung cancer. Rush was 70 years old.
One of his close friends is also one of our long-time colleagues. Nationally syndicated radio show host Tom Sullivan is a fixture in the Sacramento area where the current-day version of The Rush Limbaugh Show came to life back in 1984. Tom and Rush shared the airwaves together, and formed a bond of friendship that went well beyond the broadcast studio.
We're grateful that Tom was willing to join us to remember Rush and share a few stories, as heard within this episode of A&G's Extra Large Podcast.
