I did the same thing on my oldies show on WMPG/Gorham, ME (way back in
their mono ten-watt days in 1981.) Another jock did a weekly Friday
night show consisting of nothing but Frank Sinatra and Frank Zappa
tunes. Bizarre, perhaps, but that's college radio for ya! :)
And what veteran of Portland radio can forget the infamous Big Ange on
WASY/Gorham in the 80s, whose daily show was a virtual shrine to the
Chairman of the Board (and who probably had the same underworld
connections, for all I know. :)
Chris, covering his kneecaps just in case
P.S. Did anyone take note of WLAM's programming today?
