Mel Miller did the late morning show, called "Housewives' Hit Parade."  He
did afternoon drive under the name "Melvin X. Melvin."  I think that one
was called the "Gold Platter Show."  As I recall, he used a little bit of
echo in the morning, so that his voice would sound different.

That depends on when in the 1960s.  In February 1967, your time-frame for
the FM band, Arnie Ginsberg had already defected to WRKO and been forced
off the airwaves by the Richmond Brothers lawsuit.
