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.

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.
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.

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."
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
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!
