Indirectly referenced in the Ron Parker to WLS-FM thread is the long standing opinion that the Chicago radio listener doesn't easily accept out of market radio personalities moving into the Chicago radio market.
Perhaps I'm mis-understanding the concept but I've always taken it to mean that a person like Parker traditionally is seen as an interloper and tends to be rejected as such. Or does this only apply to syndicated personalities -- Howard Stern or Bob and Tom quickly come to mind -- imported to Chicago but struggled to ever find acceptance.
Frankly, I've always rejected the idea considering the fact that most every person considered a Chicago radio legend -- Lujack or Biondi, Wally Phillips or Bob Collins -- moved to town from elsewhere. So, how has that viewpoint -- if it truly does exist -- developed through the years?
