About this Special...

Keith Smith, Production Director at KRTH-FM, Los Angeles, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area listening to Dr. Don Rose, Big Tom Parker, Rick Shaw and Bobby Ocean . . .

Bobby Ocean and Elizabeth Salazar are well known to Repository visitors and broadcasters.

"I thought that I really respected the career of The Real Don Steele until I embarked on the monumental project of putting together a retrospective for him," says Keith. "I wish that I had really known the scope of this talents and the impact of his career while he was here, but at least I know now."

"While I was making this program, I could hear this great talent blossom until he bloomed into the legend that he rightfully was - and is! I hope that those who listen to this come away with the same appreciation for Don that I did. Tina Delgado IS alive!!"

The First Time, we urge you to listen to this remarkable radio special from beginning to end, first Part 1, then Part 2.
