Do any of you out there (perhaps Neil) have a clue as to where I might find some historic print or actual library broadcasts of Tom Shaefer and Steve Daly from the 70's at WNWS and/or WVCG?
Wow. You just about covered everything. Neil really succeeded because he was able to change. Back in the 70s at WNWS, he was doing heavy topics, and was the darling of the geriatric set - the heir to Alan Courtney's audience. I think after he saw the stupidity of the nuts who wanted an English only law (remember Emmy Schaefer?) he had enough and switched gears.(Remember the dating and biorhythm shows) I also love how he skewered the other "talent" in the market. He sent Alex Bennet packing with his sit down comedy and "studio audience." I never really got the full story of why he and The Bird ended so acrimoniously. And whatever happened to Dave Caprita? Thanks for the memories, Tom. Especially about Bill Calder. Remember meeting him with Larry King when Nathan's held a grand opening promo on Sunrise Blvd. in the 70s. My mom would call Bill every day and vote on his kitchy "Big Spinoff" on IOD when he'd pit two horrible songs against each other. Other names from the past: Big Wilson, Mike Renerie, Larry Kent, Doug Carrick, Shirley Peters, Carson Rennie, Mike Spindell. I'm rambling. Neil would have probably hung up on me by now. Have a good life, Neil.
