John Doremus 1969


A legendary talent, in a style that probably won't return.  John Doremus could tell a story, with words, delivery and music.

Wolfman Jack 1972


1972, the draft was still on.  Vietnam was happening and a lot of America was thinking about their opportunities in the military.  Wolfman Jack, Gene Price, Roger Carroll, Roland Bynum and a few more did shows for Roger Carroll Enterprises.  US stations would run these, usually very early on Sunday morning and get credit for half an hour of PSA time.  Listeners heard great talent from coast to coast.

Gary Owens 1967


Gary Owens always made silly radio fun.  The executive in charge of comedy at Golden West, really.. Remember his radio announcer test "Can you say six silly words without laughing...and MEAN them?"  Thanks Gary.
