Albany -- One of Georgia's first and longest running radio talk show personalities was in Albany Tuesday.

Ludlow Porch visited with The Medicine Man's Dr. Charlie Rouse.

The 69-year-old Porch has been on Georgia's airwaves since the early 70-s. His "Fun Seekers Network" is heard in 50 markets in eight states across the South.

Porch says for over 30 years his radio shows have changed very little. Porch said "You go to the Burger King and stand in line. And what the guy in front of you is talking about, is what we talked about the day before. Just conversation, that's what we are interested in."

 A Southern humorist who has also written a number of books, Porch says he has absolutely no desire to retire.

 Locally he is heard on WALG-AM weekday mornings.
