THE NEW YEAR'S EVE DJ STORY

It was New Year' Eve, December 31st, 1977.  The "new kid" on the block was KMEL 106.  They threw a party at a Nightclub in Sausalito.  Earlier that year, they launched and had put Tawn Mastrey on 6-10pm opposite me on KSJO San Jose, where she had been 10p-2a.  Wild Bill Scott, who passed away this year, was The Camel's Afternoon Drive.  Another DJ playing the party was Dusty Street, who was at KROQ LA at the time.  After Midnight, and closing time, the four of us rode over to someone's apartment, then at dawn, to George's in San Rafael.  Tawn was a great DJ, and didn't know at the time that she had contracted Hepetitis C from a High School Boyfriend in Minneapolis, or she might have gone easier on her Liver.  The catch was, my car was parked at the Nightclub, and I had a New Year's Day ...

Still do. Yet, they got syndicated by a big broadcast company, and a fairly decent radio show replaced morning shows in cities and towns throughout the USA, both good and bad.

Now, after Labor Day, Big Jon (who may want to start blogging more, I think) and Kelli (who's voice you already hear on River Rockbooks) will start doing a live and local morning show that also PLAYS THE MUSIC WE LOVE.  The point of my blogging about it (and I've been waiting for the news to be made public and the blogs font color to be fixed from yellow to a much more readable black - Thanks, ...
