The former owner of WCCC/Hartford makes the SMRN cut for two reasons: First, he took a chance on a young, adenoidal Howard Stern when few would. Second, and more indelible, is that, thanks to the aforesaid Mr. Stern, he throughly cleaned our morning clock when I was at rival Album Rock WHCN. When Howard debuted, we all laughed. Then came the ratings. We all cried.
