 THE DISC JOCKEYS


Johnny Dark
 

One of my favorite stories of my WMEX days has been on the web for a while and centers on Arnie "Woo Woo" Ginsberg, the legendary Boston disc-jockey who was my program director while I was there. Bill Walsh was the music director. It was his responsibility to see the record promotion men, listen to the new product and select those that he felt worthy of airplay. In his weekly meeting with Arnie, "Woo Woo" would decide which releases would be added to the station's playlist. One afternoon, I walked into Bill's office and he was throwing 45's and smashing them against the wall. When I asked him what was wrong, he said "Woo Woo has a tin ear." he proceeded to play for me two of the new releases that Arnie had rejected..."Mother In Law" by Ernie K-Doe & "Runaway" by Del Shannon.

Johnny shares another great memory, this one involving legendary R&B jock Paul 'Fat Daddy' Johnson. During the early 60's, very few people knew what good friends "Fat Daddy" (Paul Johnson) and I had become. He always invited me to his legendary shows at the Royal Theater. The friendship began through a mutual friend, record promoter Lou Krefetz. Once a month, the three of us would meet at Lou's office and get together for lunch. While we waited for Lou, "Fat Daddy" would consume most of a pint of booze that was left in a desk drawer. During lunch, he would enjoy at least three mixed drinks. Keep in mind that during this time, "Fat Daddy" was doing two airshifts a day and after lunch would have to return to the station for his afternoon show. I don't know how he did it. I remember one day, after one of those lunches, someone at WCAO came up to me and said "I was listening to "Fat Daddy" this afternoon and he sounded like he had a "buzz" on." All I could do was smile.'
