Because so many of you have asked about Ray Appleton, here’s a preview of my Thursday column that deals with the recent medical problems for the local veteran radio personality.
The KMJ (AM 580) midday talk show host was off the air two-and-a-half weeks because of being hospitalized for kidney failure and brain swelling. He returned to work on a limited basis Tuesday where he will continue to do is weekday talk show but will cut back on other projects.
Appleton says he had not felt well for a couple of months. It was during his participation in the Civil War reenactment at Kearney Park on Oct. 21 and 22 where he became so weak and delusional that he had to be hospitalized.
I just talked to him and Appleton’s optimistic that everything is OK now.
