I grew up before radio became automated, when there were pioneering and entertaining, musically knowledgeable people behind the microphone....mostly. I loved radio, Cousin' Brucie, Frankie Crocker, Wolfman Jack, Murray the K, Allison Steele, Jonathon Schwartz, Pete Fornatel, Vin Skelsa, Herb Oscar Anderson, Gene Shepherd, Bob and Ray, all well known (to me) NYC radio personalities. I loved radio!
When I was eight years old, 1963, I used to get into my older brothers collection of 45rpm records and play them on the Victrola while he was at high school. I'd put on a record and grab a candle stick or some mic-like thng, like a banana and stand at the front door behind the screen door and do my thing. Frankie Valli was my hero. I credit my older brother with introducing me to The Beach Boys, Beatles, Dion and the Belmonts, Jay and the Americans, Wilson Pickett, Smokey Robinson, All of Motown, Al Kooper,...and on and on and on...in 1970 I discovered The Band and he introduced me to The Grateful Dead and then I bought my first guitar. Then I learned Peter, Paul, and Mary, and Bob Dylan, and Simon and Garfunkel, John Denver, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Springsteen, The Dead, and a lot of one hit wonders.
So welcome to... WHRV, Radio Harvey...Hits of the 60's, 70's, & 80's.
