Almond In Pillow Talks To Go National

Long-time Detroit radio personality Alan Almond exited Clear Channel AC WNIC Late in December. A report in the Detroit Free Press says that Almond is in talks with a Los Angeles-based company which would syndicate the show. Almond and “Pillowtalk” have been heard for much of the last 25 years in fact the show was so popular that because of listener feedback WNIC had to bring him back in 2005 after letting him go.

    Pillow Talk got me through high school, ’95-’99…..I listened to Mojo (107.5) and Alan…..during countless hours of homework. Man we need it back in the D-he was the late night maestro. Being really young , his approach to matters of a person’s spirit was just plain different. Radio in Detroit today is almost unbearable.

    Not quite sure what the last two post mean. However, I would say maybe happy b-day from Canada. Also, I remember Alan never said “Good bye” just “Good Night Angel” So I say… “Good Night Angel.. my Angel Alan” and Sweet Dreams to you always” love you forever!

    I used to live in Warren and listened to Alan nightly. What a voice especially his sign off for the night. I still do miss him. I now live in the suburbs of Grand Rapids and we have Delilah on 105.7 from 7pm every night.She is the woman version of Alan. Very calming, very down to earth very human. I listen to her when I go to bed and she soothes me to sleep.

    No Alan. No Pillow Talk. No Love. No Warmth. If 100.3 did let Alan go, what a shame. Is there any loyalty and/or integrity left in this world? Jeepers Creepers! Good luck in all your endeavors Alan……..xoxo

    I miss Alan so much on these cold nights!!! I think everyone should call Fresh 100.3 or Magic 105.3 and tell them to add Alan Almond pillow talk back!!! All the night time shows are missing Night time mystery man , The reason people cuddle and the meaning of “LOVE. The voice that has made more couples realize there is no question , there is no dout, there is only you, me, right now and the moment. That Is why we NEED the velvet voice , the whisper in the night and the reason we say ” yes “.

    If nothing else it would take there stations to number 1 in the rateings …8)

    Alan will always be the ONLY late night radio personality. We to bed with him at night more then I have with my husband (ha, ha, ha). Spoke with him regularly on the phone. Looking forward to a syndicated show so Motown can share him with everyone. Once you hear the best no one else can compare. Come back soon. Gail from Macomb.

    I worked with Alan in the past and haven’t seen him in awhile.
    Alan doesn’t drink or smoke and his only nose problem were his allergies.
    Also when he left WNIC he was #1 in woman.
    He really is a wonderful guy, and a great guy to work with.

    I also grew up listening to Alan and continued to do so all through high school, college and up until WNIC made their second big mistake over a year ago now! My wife and I used to listen to him while we were dating and so miss him! I would always listen to him driving home from somewhere at night, windows open, letting his voice be taken into the night air, filling the night with it, and his songs! Miss that so much too! PLEASE come back into the night air ALAN!!! On a side note, i was lucky enough to play pool with alan at the Moose Preserve in BLoomfield Hills a bit after WNIC first let him go around 2006 i guess it was. Alan’s friend asked me and my buddy if he and ALan could play us the next game. So we did, got to talking and he asked us what we did. Then he told me what he ‘used’ to do, and i couldn’t believe whom i was talking with. Of course, i was so appreciative of his career and his show, thanked him and such, and he was really modest about it. He apparently used to hang out at this place. I should go there now and see if they’ve seen him. Great memory!

    Hey all…I am a huge fan of Alan Almond as well, and I stumbled upon a new website that has some info for affiliates interested in broadcasting “PillowTalk”…I think. Please let me know if anyone has info on this…the website is http://www.alanalmond.com. I tried to send an email to the info@alanalmond.com, but the email bounced back…anyone know if he can be heard anywhere on the radio now?

    I loved listening to Alan Almond. He first caught my ear when he started his pillow talk show back in the 70s. At that time I didn’t listen any particular radio station. But on this one staion I would regularly hear his final two songs of the evening; ‘Superstar’ by Bette Midler and ‘Summer Madness’ by Kool and the Gang. So when I finally paid attention I was hooked on his show in the evening. He would put together the best combination of music and blend it perfectly. I even recorded a couple of broadcast and took them on our honeymoon just so we would have some good music to listen to! Those were the days! I sure miss them and Alan Almond. Hope he comes back.

    Alan will be missed I am in Bradenton FL and a lot of the people in the area from michigan was turning on to pillow talk and there is no finer voice on the radio in this time slot. He not only reached the ladies but the guy could call in for the special someone in there life too. I dont know what else to say is the wnic screwed up again and his charm and voice was like no others. Alan if you read this hope you remember who I am worked with your mom. Hope to see you on some station soon. God Bless you.

    Predominantly – Sirius/Willie’s Place/50’s/and easy listening stuff……..I seldom if ever listen to music on terrestrial radio….only the local sports talk WXYT and left and right political talk…when it come to music…satellite has totally spoiled me….I will never rely on FM radio again for music…it is way too limited. I enjoy early Country and there is none available in Detroit-therefore- Satellite is the only game in town.

    actually it was nov ’06 that he called.I told him that i was a loyal listener but the stations programming was so horrible that i was protesting and the only was to do that was to not listen. The Flashback/disco wkends and 2 mos of Xmas music marked the end of my loyalty.The prog director did not even have the courtesy to answer my email much less a phone call.Detroit radio is general is unlistenable in my opinion.Alan was very understanding and considerate. he certainly earned my respect.

    WNIC has been unlistenable for yrs now-they used to be the best. I sent 2 emails in Nov 06.One to the program director and one to Alan with my concerns and a ph #. Never heard back from the prog director but Alan actually called me and we talked for 10 min.As much as I have enjoyed his program for 25 yrs-i told him that I was deleting WNIC from my car and home.I have Sirius now and the fee is well worth it.

    Alan Almonds Pillow talk show is desperately needed now. Things are really bad here in the metro Detroit area and could use his show to help us cope or at least mentally get away for a while. Come back Alan!!! Detroit NEEDS YOU!

    I don’t think there’s any truth to the rumor of Almond doing a national show. His show was dropped on WNIC because he was in like 17th place.

    While he is/was a Detroit institution, his shpw was not doing so well at night.

    The rumors of a “national” Alan show have no basis in fact, except that Alan has been touting it for the last 20 years.

    I do hope there is room for him somewhere on the dial in Detroit

    I have totally turned off to WNIC, I loved Alan Almond, who was the reason for my listening. Big Mistake. I, like many women, tuned into pillowtalk just to hear Alan’s voice. He is one of a kind and made his mark in this world. I had the pleasure to have him read an email I wrote to play a song for my 50th birthday. I also talked to him once. I will miss him and will never admire anyone as I did Alan. I call myself his forever fan. The best of luck to Alan, and to 100.3 without him. Theresa Dean

    What the….!
    I thought I was too early or his show moved to a different time slot. I have been looking for his show!
    Finally I went to WNIC station’s website and saw NO ALAN!
    What a mistake!
    It was the only show worth listening to.
    He has such a great show and no other station had a show so relaxing and comforting.
    We could really use it – given the state of our manic, depressing world.
    I hope he does get a syndication deal including a local station airing.
    I’m feel so down now. He will be missed.

    I grew up listening to Alan Almond. It was the only thing that put me to sleep as a kid and teen. Hell I even called him a couple times as a young teen when I was home alone and my mom was in the hospital and I needed someone to talk to. I’ve missed pillow talk soo much since I moved away. If it went national I would be soo happy.

    Letting Alan Almond go will be WNIC”C biggest downfall. Also the music style and variety has changed on the station. They also play the same songs all the time…you can almost clock them! Bad move in all aspects!

    It was sad to once again hear that alan almond had left wnic…night time radio for that station isnt the same without him. I work at night and it was comforting to know and hear his voice and choice of songs he would play for the evening hours. Made my time at work go by. It will be wonderful if Mr. Almond goes national for us to be able still to hear him at night.

    Dedicated Fan
