. . . My echo, my Shadoe, and me . . .

[Description by Uncle Ricky]

Shadoe Stevens is one of the most recognized voices in the world today (2009). He started in Grand Forks, N.D. in 1966 and three years later he hit the big time at Boston's WRKO. Beginning in 1970, Shadoe worked all over L.A., at KHJ, KRLA, KROQ, KMET and — KROQ, before going bigger-time as a TV SuperVoice.

Contributor Rob Frankel recorded this segment of Shadoe On The 'ROQ in December, 1977. It is unpredictable, and not just musically. There's a long Hy Cumes "comedy" episode, Billy Butz wins the Burnt Karma Burger Award, and we close with a wayback bit from The Shadow. This was not Top 40 radio, nor was it Free Form radio. This radio was carefully planned, programmed and produced, though the music was on turntables and a little dead air between songs was OK. There's a major event going on with Toys For Tots and Thank God for KROQ.

Like the previously contributed exhibit of Jimmy Rabbitt on KROQ from December, 1977, the "stereo" on this exhibit is simulated. The original aircheck is in mono, and some of the station's stereo was bad, out of phase, like most of the FM stereo of the time. There is also one edit for a tape change. Now, let's get this place cleaned up...
