    1. You know who M.J. Kelli is? Todd Schnitt! You’d never know that this dull talk show host was once a rockin’ Top 40 jock in the best tradition of the trade! I suppose that if I were to call him on WOR and play this cut for him, he’d probably deny it LOL


  1. If I didn’t personally hear this at that time, my sister was listening. 97Star was battling Z104 (WNVZ). It was GREAT radio!!! I was a LOYAL Z104 listener. My sister listened to 97Star. Things would get nasty between night slammers “MJ Kelli” and Z104’s “DB Cooper.” 97Star had their Top 9 at 9 while Z104 had their Top 8 at 8. Four months later (August 1988), MJ jumped to Z104 to do nights. Still remember calling the station the night he started on air at Z104 and talking with him. In October 1989, he left Z104 for WFLZ… By the way, WGH still uses that phone number 490-9797…
