Rufus Coyote, Super Shannon WGRQ-FM Buffalo 3-13-1974 (01:23:34)
. . . Lou Reed was showing Super Shannon a plaster cast of his ding-a-ling that his grandmother got him awhile back when mysteriously the lights went out . . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky]
WGRQ-FM was using acapellas (sparingly, and only out of stop sets) and the formatics were *very* lean. There's only one "image" element in the entire 83 minutes, which was recorded from approximately 8:45PM until 10:09PM on March 13, 1974. The playlist runs the field from Hurricane Smith and The Dells to The Moody Blues, in the grand tradition of Top 40 variety.
To top it all off, they certainly featured unusual personalities at this leading Top-40 music station! Super Shannon appears during the last nine minutes, and he does Go All The Way with his entrance. Check COMMENTS for a bit more on this fellow...
And for the finale: A 60 second spot for Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles.
