He was there in 1970 & 71 using his real name and was PD for a while in 
1971.  He might have worked there earlier under a different name as well.

He was also at WFEA around 1963 as Johnny Gardner.  I believe he went from 
FEA to WPTR.  Not sure where his career took him between leaving WPTR 
(1964?) and joining WMEX.
