  1. With J.P. and Lana being unceremoniously booted from AM 740 after 27 years of service for that station, I would have voted them into the Hall of Fame this year. They have to at least be considered for some future Texas Radio Hall of Fame class if not for this one.


  2. Lana Hughes and J.P. Pritchard went in the hall of fame in 2009.
