|Rhubarb's broadcast inspirations include
the legendary John R. of W L A C in Nashville who taught Rhubarb to
never look at radio as a job but as an opportunity to help others.
Nashville also produced to more radio heroes for Jones, Ralph Emery
and Charlie Douglas of W S M had a big influence on Rhubarb to keep
a passion for his profession. Joe Rumore of W V O K in Birmingham
was another influence on Rhubarb as a lad. Joe Rumore made his
audience feel like "family". Jones embraced that philosophy early in
his career. Atlanta's W Q X I's Gary McKee was perhaps the biggest
influence on Jones to enter broadcasting instead of the study for a
law degree. W Q X I produced "Skinny Bobby" Harper who Rhubarb
listened to in high school and proudly became friends with while
Harper was at W S B.
