THE STRAITS OF DIRE PT.1

THIS IS AN ENCORE- I AM ON VACATION!
 
Here's a live show I did 3 years ago.

My brain melting with the 3 H’s- hazy, hot and humid.

WOR-FM, THE FIRST COMMERCIAL FM ROCK STATION PT.8 CONCLUSION

WOR-FM, THE FIRST COMMERCIAL FM ROCK STATION PT.4

Moving on with this celebration of WOR-FM bringing Rock & Roll to Commercial FM Radio 45 years ago on July 30th 1966, I should say why I chose this year to honor it.

WOR-FM, THE FIRST COMMERCIAL FM ROCK STATION PT.3

We will continue this week with the celebration of that First Commercial FM Rock Station, WOR-FM.
