It's hard to believe it's been a year since Ron Smith passed away (Dec 19, 2011).
I think C4 does an admirable job in his place but I must admit there are some fleeting moments where I turn on the radio and hope to hear his voice. His was so interesting to listen to because he always had excellent guest and could talk to the people in a way that was easy to understand. He had a broad specrum of knowledge but he never came across as a "smart pants", and he always enjoyed learning from his listeners as well.
It's hard to believe that one station (well 2 that are one in the same) 98Rock/1090AM had radio icons like Ron Smith and Lopez - two of the the best radio personalities of all-time right here in Baltimore.
