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