Radio also establishes a mob hierarchy--remember those "Top Five" votes every night on KEWB
At that time, I opted to take a position with KEWB
in San Francisco where I introduced The Beatles, at their suggestion, at The Cow Palace.
Oh, I'd been digging rock'n'roll for a few years, listening to KEWB
through the earphone of my cheap transistor radio, and burning out 9-volt batteries under the midnight covers.
