What Happened to Stan Piatt?
Stan Piatt has disappeared from the Akron airwaves after 35 years. Last month he announced his plans for retirement. Suddendly and without a proper goodbye, he was gone. His last show was 9/17/13. No goodbye, no swan song. If what we read on the internet is true, EXAMPLE and it usually is, its a shame he could not say goodbye.
The following is an open letter to Stan from 640 WHLO's Jim Albright:
I'd like to take a minute to congratulate you for 35 wonderful years of broadcasting to Akron. Job well done.
I know you were planning to say goodbye, but sadly after 35 years of loyalty you weren't granted the opportunity to say farewell. That just ain't right.
Stan, this is an open invitation for you to join us on 640 WHLO to say goodbye to your loyal audience who listened and became your friends. YOU should have the chance to say goodbye.
If you become bored in retirement I'd like to invite you to become my guest host when I take vacations. I get a lot of those here at 640 WHLO, Stan. I don't even have to work holidays anymore!
Call me Buddy,
