Dedicated in memory of Jim Collins


The Red Head was Harv Moore's on-air sidekick on the morning show. The role was played by at least three different women who portrayed the ditzy but loveable girl Friday.



Harv Moore writes:

The original 'Redhead' was my wife Vicki. She used to read the school lunch menus on my show in '67 and '68. On Sunday night I would tape her reading the NFL scores. She had trouble matching up teams with their nicknames...really screwed 'em up. Fans would call me, and holler at me: "Will you please tell The Redhead that it's not the 'Kansas City Jets!".

I remember Connie Lawn. Nice lady. As she points out, she was at 'PGC for a hot minute in 1969. They kinda threw us together to see if something might work.

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 Program Director's 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 where she still works to this day. At some point, she remarried - her last name is now Hoffman and she has a daughter.
