You know, I never could figure out what was supposed to be so special about this guy. You couldn't listen to him in Portland because XERB and KWJJ were on adjacent channels and KWJJ blocked the Tijuana station locally. But when we went to the coast we'd listen because it was the only place to heaar the hits. I always thought the Wolfman was horrible. No Tiger Tom, that's for damn sure.

LOVE the Wolfman!!He and Dr Demento were two of the best things on radio! Yes, I was a big KISN fan...

Here's the difference for me: I loved Tom and tuned him in faithfully every night while doing my homework, but I cannot remember anything specific he ever said and can barely hear his voice in my mind today.

On the other hand, Wolf Man's patter is indelibly imprinted in my brain, not to mention his voice (and surely radio is all about the voice).

There is a reason Lucas used the Wolf Man in Graffiti.

Regardless, my personal favorite is Don Steele. PDX was surely blessed when he ruled the air here before his explosion in LA. What he said, and how he said it, was remarkable and unforgettable, especially his Fractious Fridays.

There is a reason Tarantino used RDS's patter in Once Upon a Time.

God bless the Jocks!

There have been many great DJs over the years but (The) RDS was absolutely the best....of course that's just my opinion! Everybody has their favorites! I listened to him here in Portland and again in the 70's when my employment took me to L.A. Again in my opinion he was absolutely the best at "posting" a record that I ever heard!

And while we are at it, let's not forget that DRS wasn't exactly chopped liver, either!

Such crushes a few of my girlfriends in early hs days had on DRS....

I heard Wolfman in about 1965 when visiting relatives in Roseburg, he came in on my transistor radio in the quiet Southern Oregon nighttime airwaves.
