        Little Walter was on WBPS last Sunday evening around 9:30-10 p.m. I
drove through the signal, so I'don't know how long after that his show ran.
Another post called him a "wannabe," but I enjoy him. He's a throwback to
an earlier DJ era. He turns the mike on in the middle of the songs and
shouts or sings along. It has the energy of 1950s-60s top 40 DJs that isn't
on the air anymore. And he plays unusual oldies, even compared to other
doo-wop type shows.
