I was really surprised to be remembered on a list that included some 
major heavyweights, past and present.  I didn't realize it at the time-- 
I mean, I was a music director doing my job, and getting airplay for 
some interesting new bands (back when music directors could still pick 
their own music and stations actually took chances)-- but getting Rush's 
career started in the US was a big deal, because their success provided 
the impetus for WMMS-FM's campaign to get the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 
to locate in Cleveland.  The selling point was that WMMS-FM was a 
breakout station for so many new and exciting rock bands (like Rush).
