There’s a wonderful article about him in an old book “The Age Of Rock,” probably a reprint from Crawdaddy magazine or one of those rock mags of the '60s.

HOLY CRAP!!! His show was very popular on AFN (armed forces network radio) during the 70s and 80s. Interesting that he appeared in a selective service commercial!
