Dedicated in memory of Jim Collins


The Money Girls were introduced in 1973 and would cruise Metro Washington in search of WPGC bumperstickers on cars. When the license plate on the vehicle was read on the air the driver would wave & win a $100 dollar bill.

Harv Moore writes:

The Redhead (Joanie Fierstein) came to work for us in 1972 as a receptionist. I started using her on my show doing drop-ins, and then I asked her if she could come in a little early, drive the Money Car on my show, and then come in and be on the show with me. As I got busier in my PD job, I needed a secretary, so Joanie came in at 6, was on the show with me 'til 10, and then was my secretary for the rest of the day.

Fierstein was her married name. When she came to work for us in '72 she was divorced. After I moved to Buffalo, she stayed on at 'PGC for a while, but then they let her go. At one point she considered moving to Buffalo to continue her radio career, but then went to work for NASA. At some point, she remarried - her last name is now Hoffman and she has a daughter.

Linda Kelly writes:

I was a Money Girl on the morning show with Harv Moore for a brief period of time. I was hired by Harv as the first female rock jock at WPGC and one of the first in the country. Harv had been looking for a "female rock jock" for more than five years but could not find one. Harv heard me on WLPL in Baltimore and hired me after I had been at WLPL only a few DAYS! WPGC and Harv were a dream to me! I grew up listening to both! I did overnights (2-6AM) and often stayed over with Harv for the early part of the morning show. So,most of my time at WPGC was as a jock. Later, I became a Money Girl and also did "Sound Off" and the Sunday morning show "Contact."

I was in radio 30 years in the Washington area. I did morning drive at WWDC-AM when it was rock, worked at WMZQ (twice), Xtra-104 (middays and MD), and Mix 107.3 (twice) and for the last eight years of my career. I also worked at WPGC twice when I came back to "Classy 95" as MD and evening jock. After 30 years in the biz, I am now happily raising my 8 year old twins (Tommy and Mollie) and am married to the Dir. of Engineering for Clear Channel, Tom Shedlick. My oldest son Ryan, 21, is a senior at UNC. Ryan grew up in the studios of WPGC / Classy 95 and WMZQ. He often slept in a sleeping bag in the back of the studios while I was on the air. Even as a baby, Ryan knew that if the "ON AIR" light came on that he could not talk!

WPGC was the best radio station I ever worked for. Harv and I are still in touch. Charley Lake & Joel Denver remain two of my closest friends. Jim Collins, Columbus and I were very close. To this day, I still think of Jim and miss him terribly. Dave Foxx and I talked just recently. It's amazing how we are spread out throughout the country but nothing can take away the loving feelings we developed for each other at WPGC. Thanks for the memories!
