  1. Ketchup on the records- obviously Greg didn’t like the Spinners’ tune. I wonder how tight the playlist was at the time. Maybe he could have substituted something he liked or just scraped the needle across the vinyl.

  2. Greg Aust, aka “The Chucker” (while at KFRC – San Francisco) … Now there is a guy I looked up to in the biz!
