  1. Burl neglected to mention another lengthy non-hit he played on KOL. In winter 1972-73, during the evenings, Burl would play all 7:07 of Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks.” Interspersed between Bonzo’s drum hits, Burl would cue the mic and exclaim, “KAY-oh-el! KAY-oh-el!” Raised on records, born to rock and roll indeed. Thanks for interviewing the Boss Jock.
