You are probably right. Which is why it is all the more important to see that people in a position to do so GET IT RIGHT. At the very least, Art Pallan's memory deserves that fundamental dignity, not to mention KDKA's credibility.

These errors become received wisdom all too often. Personal example: Numerous websites, web postings, etc., listing Jackson Armstrong's resume include KDKA. Evidence: A very short aircheck I recorded in October 1975 when I happened to run across what unfortunately was the tail end of an apparent on-air audition one Sunday morning. Nothing more came of it, but since the aircheck went into circulation some years later, KDKA has appeared alongside 13Q, Y100, etc. in lists of stations where Mr. Armstrong worked. It would be a shame for "Art Palin" to become enshrined in the web-generated radio history books he was hardly a footnote where KDKA is concerned and corrections should be made.
