WPGC FM and AM Morningside. Hello! Just after 12 noon with Dan Mason and a Blues Brothers album on the way, hang on. (Bee Gees music)

This has, actually, posted elsewhere, but as part of our WPGC series, it’s important that we hit ALL the highlights of this radio station which employed so many talented individuals. Dan Mason, of course, would become Program Director of WPGC shortly after his 1978 arrival, and moved right up the executive ladder from there. His entire career is on public display at many places on the web, including the National Radio Hall of Fame (click the link).

Don’t forget to visit AM and FM Morningside to capture the entire WPGC experience!

One thought on “The WPGC Files – Part 2. Dan Mason, December 23, 1978”
  1. Love that echo chamber! I worked with Dan and “Dirty” Steve Rivers (aka Carl Belcher, RIP) at WVLK in Lexington, KY. Dan was working at the “Big 59” part-time while going to school and Carl followed me 8-Midnight. I did Afternoon Drive as Robert E. Lee. In fact I threw a going away party at my house before he left Lexington for Kansas City. And the rest is history.
