Dedicated in memory
Good Guy DJs album from 1970, consisting primarily of recurrents
from the previous 12 months.
Guy DJ Davy Jones writes:
concept for the WPGC Together Gold album was born in an elevator
in NYC at the Billboard Convention in 1969. I was heading to one
of the suites for a bit of partying There was a guy
on the elevator, his name was Walt Davison, he was a small time
promoter with a record label out of Philly. The label was DAVCO.
At the time I was Music Director of WPGC. We got to the party,
started talking, drinking, drinking, talking..I mentioned we (WPGC)
needed a promotion and maybe, just maybe a collection of hits
would do the trick.
Once back in DC, Walt came to town, we sold Bob
Howard on the idea and we started putting together a list
of potential songs. Once we decided on the titles, Walt started
contacting the labels. That collection is what we scored on at
almost no cost to WPGC. One sidelight to this, I was pretty good
friends with Tommy James, so I called and asked for Crystal
Blue Persuasion or Crimson and Clover. Tommy
said sure take your pick. We did. Once the album came
out Walt got a call from NYC, Red Schwartz, the Promo guy for
Roulette wanted to see him. Walt went to New York
had two goons waiting for Walt, they beat the shit out of him.
He told me, I called a guy I knew from Philly and told him. He
visited Red, and kicked the shit out of him (paybacks are hell.)
Walt remained a good friend of mine up until his untimely death
due to a heart attack in the mid 90s!

The album was not available in stores, we sold it on the air.
We gave away very few of them and it was a real MONEY MAKER. There
was a jock contest to see who could sell the most albums during
their shift. I THINK Jim
Madison (Joel Denver) won it. As for the logo, Davco owned
it, soooo, WPGCs was not used. The photos used at the time
were probably 2 or three years old; mine was fairly recent. One
other thing, Bob Howard did
not want to pay a graphic artist to design the cover, so I did
the art-work. There was not a Volume 2.
