If you could “channel” any historic figure or celebrity for advice, who would you channel and what kind of advice would you seek from them?
Mike Miller, WHKF: Dick Clark for sure.  Just to pick his brain and see what drove him every day.

Eric Chase, WVKS: Abraham Lincoln and ask about his mastery of getting people to get along, at least to the degree so they can successfully work together, and maybe even achieve historic things

Big Rob, KSME: I think Robert De Niro would tell me how it is...seen his new post about the Donald? LOL   He knows what it takes to be successful in anything he does and I think he'd have some great tips that I could use in our field. 

Kobe, WWHT: Johnny Carson and I’d ask him how did for so long though different decades and stayed so relevant and on top of his game.

Chuck Damico, WBEN/WMMR: My Dad. Everything.

Kevin Kash, WWEG: I'd like to channel George Washington and ask him if it's supposed to be this difficult.
Jonathan Reed, WNOK: Jesus Christ. Just to get his advice on how to deal with stuff. I'd put his suggestions in the que for consideration.

Toby Knapp, WIHT: Steve Jobs...period!

Mike “OD” O’Donnell, WKRZ: Johnny Carson, because he had a great way to be able to relate to the regular person even though he was this giant star. The advice I would seek would be how he can put yourself in that position when you’re trying to relate content to people in a real simple kind of guy manner and how he made it feel so easy, comfortable and unpretentious.

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia / Atlanta: Walt Disney for time management advice.

Jared Banks, KUDD: To sit with Sir Paul McCartney and talk about passion, creativity, longevity and balancing it all with a fantastic personal life away from the business!  He has always had a great grasp on what matters most to him and stayed true to that.  I respect that a lot!  But when you were a Beatle, what else do you have to prove to anyone?

Brian Mack, WXXL: FDR…Who should I vote for? 

Fish Boy, WKRZ: John D. Rockefeller, and I’d like to hear firsthand how he built his empire and went from nothing to the wealthiest businessman of all time. He was definitely the pioneer of all the highly successful business tycoons that would eventually follow.

Chris Michaels, FM 100: I am a huge Alabama fan, so I would love to have one on one time with Nick Saban. In my opinion, he is one of the smartest college football coaches out there, and he continues to perform with new players coming and going every year. I would love to just have a few hours with him to pick his brain on coaching, his vision, and everything else in between.
