1. What radio personality
influenced you into getting into radio?
Q and A with
I used to pick up Clark Weber on WLS .....when he did the all night show
called "East of Midnight",
always thought he was a tremendously talented Air Personality.
2. Which KQV contest or
promotion was your favorite?
When I did the "bring back Jim Quinn" promotion (for selfish reasons)...so
I could depart KQV gracefully to get to my lifetime goal station...WLS.
To my knowledge that's the first time an Air Personality was ever allowed
out of a contract to go from one ABC radio station to another ...
3. What moment was the
highlight of your long-time at KQV?
It was a whirl wind gig for me...I was in and out of Pittsburgh in 5 months....as
I had met John Rook @ WLS while I was traveling thru Chicago to take the
KQV gig.... I wanted 'LS... and Rook wanted me in Chicago, so it
was a matter of arriving @ KQV in September of 1968... and departing to
be on the air at WLS by 2/14/69. (Valentines Day)
4. Of all the personalities
you worked with at KQV, which one(s) were your favorite(s) to listen to?
Freddie Winston....he's a great guy and an extraordinary air talent.
We did Omaha, Pittsburgh, and Chicago together...he was always only a few
months behind me at each of those cities/stations.
5. If you had to pick
one hit song you played at KQV, which one did you really hate?
"Those Were The Days" by some broad who I can't even remember her
name... (Mary Hopkin)
6. What was your favorite
jingle or jingle package from your days at KQV?
I think the Pams Package that Mike McCormick came up with was an improvement
over the short/fast 14 KQV package they had there when I arrived.
