Re: some "Lost 45s"...

I imagine some PD's would be afraid to air it....fear of someone writing
down WOLD in an arbitron diary!

I remember Dale playing the song...and instead of announcing it as
W-O-L-D...he said "That's Harry Chapin and "wold"" (pronouncing it as a
word).  I remember seeing the 45 in a record store before I knew the song
wondering what song this "wold" was....

When Harry would do a concert in a town with a radio station
sponsorship...he would sing the final verse with the stations call letters.
Most memrable was when the last verse he sang in Providence was "I am the
morning DJ at W-P-R-O-o-o-o!"

The crowd cheered!
