[Description by Uncle Ricky for contributor Wayne Scott]

Jack Da Wack and Hollywood Hamilton Burst Back To First on Z-100 in July, 1984.

This was a fairly difficult assignment, because despite Z-100's outstanding production, promotion, and personalities, there are several music-to-music segues in this 45 minute exhibit. If you tuned in at the beginning of one of these two-song sets, and tuned out before the end of the second song, you wouldn't have a clue as to the identity of the station. And train wrecks? They got 'em, rocker-to-romance and a screaming jingle finish to a wimpy fade-in.

We give them an A-plus for production, promotion and personality, and a C-minus for presentation! Nevertheless, Z-100 did return to first, and all involved became fabulously famous and wealthy. Maybe formatics don't matter if you've got the attitude...
