I've got all kinds of information about the 1920s and early 1930s, so maybe I can contribute something to your site. Keep up the good work!

Bob Michaels hired me to do news at WPOP Maaaany years ago. It was the job that brought me to CT in the first place. Pretty much changed the course of my life. Like throwing a pebble in the pond and watching the ripples spread.

I caught you guys on WDRC AM this afternoon talking about CT radio history and this web site. Very interesting stuff, though Iâ??m not in the radio business Iâ??ve been a listener of various radio stations over the years. You touched on FM radio today and that brought back some memories of the early 70â??s for me. In the late 60â??s I listened to the two top 40 stations WDRC and WPOP but at night I stumbled upon â??The Album Portion of the Frank Holler Showâ? which I think was on WPOP. I was hearing this incredible music I had never heard before, album cuts of some great rock music. I started telling my friends in Jr. High about this and one guy told me you got to check out WHCN FM; he had an older brother. From there I was hooked, I had never heard such great music. Entire albums being played, no talking over the music, full versions of songs, songs played to the end and a great mix of music, not the same stuff over and over. I guess this was the early life of what we called underground radio, progressive rock or album oriented rock. Those were the days. From there it grew for me besides WHCN, there was WPLR, WCCC, the Springfield station as well as the college stations. I remember the guy on WPLR at night, Stoneman. Every night he would pick a band for a special and would play entire albums of the particular band or artist. â??Tonightâ??s special is XXXX, Iâ??m Stoneman, enjoyâ? I also I heard you guys currently work at WWUH at UHART. I attended UHART in the 70â??s and I remember touring the campus while still in high school. The student guide took us through the campus and part of the tour was going through the student union building where WWUH studios were located. We stood in the hallway outside the closed studio door while he explained that the campus had a FM radio station. As he spoke we started to detect a smoky sweet pungent odor sneaking through the door, he smiled and just said â??yeaâ? and we moved on. Different times back then I guess.
