Well, I didn't.  I didn't know they were the same person until he appeared 
on the WROR Rock & Roll Revival Weekend in March 1985.  I think he used a 
bit more echo as Mel Miller, so as to disguise his voice a little.  The 
morning show (Mel Miller) was called the "Housewives' Hit Parade," and the 
afternoon show (Melvin X. Melvin) was the "Gold Platter Show."
