Re: WODS jingles, songs-in-a-row

I believe they went live when Gary BErkowitz came up to program them....this
was in the late 70's....maybe 77-78.

While they were automated...they had some specialty shows on the
weekend....They had Arnie Ginsberg, and Quentin Miglirori and a feature
artists special and a kinda "behind the music" special they did...I seem to
recall this was Sundays from Noon on.  THe rest of the week they were

Ron Dwyer was one of the automated voices.  He did evenings on WROR
(prerecorded) and at the same time could be heard on WWEL....where he did
next to no talking.

I never remembered Little Walter at WROR....I think there would have been a
'culture clash' if he was there.
