Last April, Cincinnati radio legend Jim Scott retired, signing off from his long-time morning show on WLW. He started his local broadcasting career with Top-40 powerhouse WSAI in 1968. He had a short stint with WNBC-AM in New York City in 1972, before returning to Cincinnati. He joined WLW in 1984, and last year announced his retirement after more than 30 years hosting the station's weekday morning show from 5 to 9.  Now, along with his wife Donna, he's enjoying retirement on their farm in Southeast Indiana.

Since starting her career in 1979, comedian Paula Poundstone has performed thousands of shows, been recognized as one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-ups of all-time, and been inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. And public radio listeners know her as a frequent guest on “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me.”

  Before cable and satellite TV, before Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming media services, there was radio.
