    Did you live though the Steve and Garry/Larry Lujack rebellion?

    I was in the John Landecker era.

    Yeah I remember those names. My biggest listening years were probably '60 - '68.

    WGH in Norfolk, Va. Could pick up that station real well in Suffolk, Va. It played all the latest rock and roll. Listened to it throughout the 60's.

    Late 60's early 70's I listened to Top 40 93 KHJ in L.A. then in my teen years I switched to 94.7 KMET (Tweedle Dee!). The "Mighty MET" is still the standard I measure all other Rock stations against. None have even come close, especially that poser station KLOS.

    Anyone else in L.A. ever read Jim Ladds book "Radio Waves"? It's a must read for all FM radio lovers.
