5 thoughts on “John Lennon sits in as Guest DJ: 93/KHJ Los Angeles | September 27, 1974

  1. Great station KHJ,also great to have John Lennon on as a guest DJ.Sounds like John picked all of the music.Think John could`ve had second career as a comedian.

  2. Given that the jock was John Lennon…no, he’s not around.

    The jock who he’s filling in for, Charlie Van Dyke, is, though. So’s the jock who led into him (heard on more complete recordings of this morning), Johnny Williams. And so’s the PD, Gerry Petersen (Cagle).

    But you don’t even need them. This was KHJ in 1974. A “lot of production elements” was standard operating procedure. They still had engineers. They didn’t go combo until ’77.

    As for “Superstar Week”, it’s all out there. You just have to not call it good after 90 seconds on Google. It was Van Dyke’s vacation. With former KHJ morning stars Robert W. Morgan at KIQQ and Charlie Tuna at KKDJ, KHJ didn’t want to just stick Bill Wade in the slot for a week, so Paul Drew and Harvey Mednick came up with Superstar Week.

    Cheech and Chong Monday, Alice Cooper Tuesday, Cher Wendesday, Elton John Thursday and John Lennon Friday. All in the KHJ jock booth and all live.
