Bill Drake's original "History of Rock and Roll", which aired continuously for a weekend in spring 1969 on all his client stations and in Sunday night blocks on KQV in fall 1969 (and, a year or two later, on WIXZ), included a segment in which Phil Spector was played records to comment on. One of the best lines was when he described "Reach Out I'll Be There" as "the Four Tops doing Bob Dylan." Another of the records was "Since I Don't Have You," which he walked the listener through, pointing out all the innovations it embodied. It's still one of the most timeless records of its era, and certainly impressed Spector, as well as many others who added strings to R&B songs in the years that followed.

The 1970 KDKA anniversary program was issued as a boxed set of LPs titled "The First Fifty Years of Radio" and may turn up on eBay, etc., from time to time.
