Just wondering if anyone remembers the guy who founded Raven Records in Clarksburg or Bridgeport back in the mid 1960's. I think he was a deejay at WHAR-AM at one time. I remember that he was interviewed on WBOY's "Around And About.." or "The Frances Basile Show". I've searched the internet and can find mention of a couple of 45 rpm releases by "local" groups/artists but no information on who founded and ran the company. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I think the guy's name was Lee Rhodes (sp?) but I can't be sure. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I always thought "Walking Home My Little Girl and Others" was one song?
