WCBS Rock’n Roll Hall of Fame Show 88 & Humble Harve KHJ Boss Radio 67

A great twin spin spanning  21 years.

The first clip is of a WCBS FM broadcast during the Rock’n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies from The Waldorf Astoria in 1988. The Show was hosted by Bob Shannon and  Don K Reed. This was a night when The Beatles, The Supremes, The Beach Boys and Bob Dylan were inducted.

I have more tape of this show but have edited the broadcast and kept only the Beach Boys and Bob Dylan segments plus a newscast near the end and a brief segment after that.

The second clip comes from Los Angles station KHJ and features DJ Humble Harve from January 1967.  The station was referred to as Boss Radio at the time and had become a Drake formatted station since 1965. Generally that format had narrowed playlists and muted DJ’s but there were exceptions and Humble Harve was one. The playlist is quite interesting. Album cuts are played along with 45’s  by The Peanut Butter Conspiracy, The Seeds and Love. The Beatles sitar laden Love You Too gets an airing along with a Dylan track not normally played on Top 40 radio. I have another hour of the KHJ tape that I will upload in the future.
