RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL _078 – “58 Radio DJs With Hit Singles”
This episode spotlights 58 rock, pop, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, and country radio disc jockeys who not only played the hits, but also made their own.
We’ll salute some of the stations those DJs were on, with a few soundbites of their shows and jingles from some of their stations – all thanks to our resident Rocklogist, Ken Deutsch. His radio jingle archive is one of the largest in the world.
We’ll remember two DJ’s from a legendary Memphis, Tennessee station whose collective total of hit singles reached nearly 100. And the former Richlands, Virginia DJ with more hit singles than any other DJ ever.
And how about the first radio DJ ever to have a hit record? We’ll tell you his story, too.
You’ll also hear about several other recording stars who got their start as radio DJs. Plus, some established recording artists who later became radio DJs, as well.
