Howard Hoffman, WALL Middletown, NY March 1975

Back in 1998, on this very website, the multi-talented Howard Hoffman referred to WALL as the flamethrower of the Catskills. This ancient aircheck demonstrates his sometimes crazed approach to playing the hits without flame-retardant gloves. Lots of listening fun! Thanks to The Rob Frankel Collection.

The Big 610 Countdown continues with Dr. Don Rose, and Jane Dornacker is there, too, along with hits #129 through #116. Plus, Scott Rayer, the contributor of this series, talks with Dr. Don! Thanks, Scott!

"... Todd (Storz) and some others were sitting around figuring out what they could do on their station and they noticed that WDSU had a program called the Top 20. And they thought if the Top 20 was successful, that the Top 40 would be even better - and that's what they said - We're going to be twice as good as WDSU 'cause we're gonna play - The Top 40."
