Thanks for passing on the sad news, Jeff. I have always thought he was the best PD that KQV ever had, and the Rook years (1964-67) certainly were KQV's most successful. I believe they beat KDKA in the ratings more than once during that time.

Some of the staple formatic elements of more recent top 40, such as an evening all-request countdown and getting listeners to vote among two or more new records, were being done at KQV back in the mid-1960s.
