The Hartford Courant reports that Doug, and Mary Jones of WDRC AM and 
another staffer were "laid off" due to decreasing ad revenue in the Hartford 
market. Too bad, We enjoyed listening to Doug for quite a few years. He's 
smooth, happy and entertaining. Hopefuly, the slip of the tonque wasn't the 
reason for his demise a DRC. In fact that's one reason we listened to his 
show, and to DRC in general; the lack of 'raunchiness'. But, even DRC plays 
the popular 1970 selection by Free,  "All Right Now" with its' " the f^&*in' 
rent" line

Larry Wells replaces Doug, and Floyd Wright formerly with WWYZ, Country 
92.5, Waterbury-Hartford, and earlier with WKCI, KC-101, Hamden, CT, both 
for many years, moves into Larry's mid-day shift

Best wishes to Doug Taylor. We will miss your happy, upbeat voice.

Long time afternoon drive host at WDRC-FM Hartford, Doug Taylor was let go
this week.

Larry Wells moves to Afternoon Drive and overnight host Floyd Wright moves
to Middays.

Last week, while talking on the air about a BIG D Legends of Rock n Roll
Concert, he referred to Gary Puckett by accident as Gary F&^kit.

Could this be why he was let go? Just pure speculation on my part.
