the talk guy and his music...
I’m sure if Neil Rogers were still around he would disagree...but I have great taste in music!
Back when we were running away with top demos in EVERY category including “teens” on WINZ-AM Miami I used to play a song or two every few days and got very positive feedback from listeners on what I played. (The engineers warned me about the “highs” of the music not making it well on the big AM signal but I did it anyway.
Here’s a short list for you...dig these out of your archives enjoy!
