Break Up's And Blow Up's
Here's a short CD with some real tough to find classics.
This CD starts with an outtake from Casey Kasem during his American Top 40
hosting days. Casey is doing one of his long distance dedications concerning the
death of a family pet. When he hears that the song that'll play before the
segment is too up tempo he let's loose with a four letter word tantrum of
monumental proportions. This is Casey Kasem as you've never heard him....and he
wishes you never did. There are no bleeps on this cut so ask the kids to cover
Cut Time - 1:24
A real quickie from Rick Dees is next. Dees has a little fun with Casey's
tantrum by doing his own long distance death dedication.

Cut three is one of the few, if only times Dan Ingram broke up on the air.
This is the Brief Shower incident. Dan was reading the weather which included
the phrase "brief showers." Cousin Brucie, who had gone shopping before coming
in, was in the studio. When Dan said "brief showers" Brucie reached into his bag
and started throwing the underwear he had bought at Dan.

Music Radio 88? No...It was just a joke that the guys at WCBS-FM played on
the folks at WCBS-AM. This cut features a gag promo that Ron Lundy and Cousin
Brucie recorded featuring the announcement of "Music Radio 88." Just

The final cut features Long John Nebel. He was one of the pioneer radio talk
show hosts whose show resembled Art Bell's show of today in many ways. Nebel
worked at WOR, WNBC and finally WMCA. His later years were as a syndicated show
until his death in 1978. Larry King picked up the overnight radio slot after
This cut from WNBC in 1972 starts innocently enough as Nebel starts to do a
live read commercial as his studio of guests sat in. What Long John didn't
realize until he started the read that it was an ad for an adult film called It
Happened In Hollywood. What was supposed to be a sixty second live read became a
four and a half minute break up classic. Listen close to the start as Nebel
stutters as he read aloud the first mention that this is an adult film.
