Reply Steve West April 23, 2011, 1:41 pm No, Jim Collins was a great jock in his own rite. Colmes was a talk host and had the first pm drive without music – in fact, someone once told me that when Alan Colmes was hired to replace Joey Reynolds, they wanted him to play music – even if it was only 2 or 3 records per hour, and he refused, except for in the beginning, out of the Top hour newscast. Reply Dale Parsons April 28, 2011, 11:51 pm By the time Joey was gone, there wasn’t much music in the afternoon show. I believe Alan started off playing a couple of songs, but they were used as transitions between bits or guests. Jim Collins was a great jock and programmer, invaluable as my assistant, and one of my best friends. He left us much too soon. Reply Paul DiMarco February 1, 2012, 1:39 am By the time I started listening to Alan Colmes it was after Soupy had been let go and Ray Dariano was doing afternoons…At that time Alan was not playing any music at all….But I do remember a short stint that Jim Collins had done during the transition of Soupy’s show to Ray’s show….He sounded great as always….Jim Collins is missed by many !! Including me !! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
