96 Rock

John Kiesewetter

Confessions from the "Remembering Radio's Rock Rivalries" panel discussion at the downtown public library Sunday:

--WEBN-FM's Jay Gilbert was the person who plastered WEBN stickers all over the WKRQ-FM van parked in Hyde Park.

--Former WLW/WEBN executive Randy Michaels didn't really think a station would change formats from rock to country when he started spreading speculation that Q102 would change from rock to country.

If you remember Marty Bender from the old Bender & Fingers morning show on 96 Rock in the 1980s, then you'll be happy to hear him back on Cincinnati radio Monday, Oct. 10.

Bender, who later was executive producer of the nationally syndicated "Bob & Tom Show," returns to town at WOFX-FM (Fox 92.5)  as program director and midday host (10 a.m.-1 p.m.). He'll join the lineup of Cincinnati rock veterans Laura Steele (1-4 p.m.) and Jay Gilbert (4-8 p.m.).
