'You're Groovin' With 10,000 Wild Watts of WPGC Hit Power....'

Harv Moore 'The Boy Next Door' is a native of Pelham, New York but came to WPGC from Frankfort, Kentucky in March of 1963. Initially, he did nights till sign-off but within a few months was moved to mornings when Jerry G left for KYW in Cleveland, starting just days before the tragic JFK assassination.

Harv was also Program Director when Dean Griffith (Dean Anthony) left in 1964 for WMCA in NY until the arrival of Cousin Warren Duffy in 1966. He also served as Music Director from 1971 when Davy Jones left for WMAL-FM but was promoted to Program Director again in 1972 when big Wilson vacated the position.

Harv continued in mornings until early in 1975 when he accepted an offer from former WPGC General Manager, Bob Howard to do mornings in Buffalo at WYSL. Today, Harv does weekends at Mix 104.1 WHTT / Buffalo.

By 1969, Harv was a fixture in morning radio in Washington. This aircheck, recorded several days before Memorial Day includes several live spots by him for both local and regional clients. Other commercials heard on this tape include an anything but politically correct one for Ultra-Brite toothpaste, as well as ones for Budweiser and Sheehy Ford (get a Mustang for just $2294!).

The 'More Music' battles were omnipresent as various production elements heard throughout the show tout 'Two In A Row!' and 'Triple Power Play'. While spot clustering as we know it today simply did not exist back then, its genesis can be heard herein.

'The Morning Mayor's' liberal use of wild tracks and various drop-in production pieces are highly reflective of the era. The comedy bit in which he interacts with his dentist is a case in point.

That's News Guy, Bob Raleigh (Bill Miller) doing the report on Apollo 10 returning home. His voice is also heard on the Sports report as well as on several imaging elements such as the Legal ID and 'Time Capsule - 1965' stager.

General Manager, Bob Howard loved the microphone and had long doubled as the anonymous, 'Mr. Soundoff'. On this tape he's heard twice as listeners complain about not having mud flaps on their truck and, of all things, about Soundoffs themselves!

Primary station positioners in use included 'WPGC #1', 'Good Guys Radio' & 'WPGC Music Power' (themes all echoed on station jingles). Said mentioned were from PAMS. Most cuts were from the 'Grid' package but Harv draws on numerous other cuts from previous packages as well.

Street presence of the station was augmented by the WPGC 'Beachcomber' who would arrive on the scene at pools around Greater DC and award various prizes. Sales Guy, Mike Cohen was doing the honors at the time of this tape. He would later go on to become General Manager of WMZQ.
