  1. BEFORE HE WAS AT KB BUD BALLOU WAS KING OF THE NIGHT TIME AIRWAVES AT WNDR IN SYRACUSE. HIS MAIN COMPETITION AT THE TIME WAS OF ALL PEOPLE DALE DORMAN AT TINY 250 WATT WOLF.

  2. KB was a big deal all across western NY back in the day. A high school classmate of mine in high school in Rochester got a boost in status when we found out he was Buf Ballou’s cousin. (And more than one of us in that class gave radio a try as a result of that sort of second-hand brush with greatness…along with the fact that the top morning man in the city back then, Jack Palvino, had also attended our school as a teen.)

    1. Jack Palvino came and spoke to our radio club at the U of R . he was one of the main reasons I got into the business.
