At that time, wasn't it Chou En Lai?

That's in chronological order; you can trace my musical evolution in this paragraph!

I don't remember what the trivia question was, but I won a gallon of 
Friendly's ice cream in a contest in WERS back in the early 1970s.  They 
had a Saturday night rock & roll oldies show with a DJ who called 
himself "Al Payola."  When I went into the Coolidge Corner Friendly's to 
pick up my ice cream, the guy there knew "Al Payola" and told me his 
real name, but I don't remember what it was.
