Ken Levine says of Frank Terry: “There was no more versatile performer in radio. The two biggest rock stations in America in the mid 60’s could not have sounded more different. KHJ Los Angeles was ultra streamlined, WABC New York was all bells and whistles (chimes actually) – organized chaos. Only one disc jockey ever worked both formats. Frank Terry at KHJ and later at WABC’s sister station and clone in San Francisco, KSFX. You just gave him the charts and he could play.
He was the guy who broke in the other Bossjocks. He was the guy who worked every shift, often going months at a time without a day off. The beat had to go on and he was the drummer.”

* I will post the longer KHJ aircheck when I run across it. Not sure what the big attraction was for KRLA. Though KRLA had some great jocks, the overall sound of KRLA was lackluster.

  1. Quite a contrast between KRLA and KHJ. KRLA’s presentation and its jingles were kind of blah. Then KHJ comes on and blows them out of the water
