PLAYDave Hull, KRLA Los Angeles, July 9, 1965 Pt.1 (43:59)

. . . save your heart for me, and your liver, how about a slightly used pancreas? . . .

[Description by Contributor Michael Hagerty]

It's KRLA "Win A Cycle" time, and you can play "Beatle Ball" with the Hullabalooer.

Dave Hull was a big deal in pre-Boss Radio L.A. Here, just two months into KHJ's new format, there's no sign of any sweat about this Real Don Steele. Besides, Hull was firing on all cylinders, out-zanying (and out-rating) Gary Owens at KMPC.

Radio newscasts are always a great way to remind us the world wasn't a safe place even in the good old days. Check the violence and mayhem level in the first newscast here — including the kidnapping of California State Finance Director Hale Champion, his wife and 19-month old daughter — ending in Champion being shot by a "well-meaning" citizen. He survived, told KRLA News his story, and made it to the ripe old age of 85.

Dave Hull went on to KFI, KGBS, KFI again, KMPC, KRLA again, KHJ and fill-ins for Robert W. Morgan on KRTH before moving to Palm Springs and enjoying a 16-year run at easy listening KWXY-FM. He retired after a format change in early 2010.
