Don't hold me to it, but I believe the tally of albums bearing his name and/or likeness is either 13 or 14, beginning in 1962 with "WAMO's Golden Gassers," which featured a picture of him with a feather duster. The same album, released by Chess, was released in the NYC market with Murray the K Kaufman on the cover. The fellow who followed Porky's lead of featuring oldies--and made a nice fortune for himself--LA DJ Art Laboe, released his first "Oldies But Goodies" album in 1960. And no, Porky has no trademark on what was essentially his own creation.
Unfortunately, he's not doing any live shows for Terry Lee's "Pittsburgh Oldies Radio." He had been doing live shows from his home in Brookline on Friday afternoons, but it became too much for the engineer to make the trip every week.
