Patti Lattanzi, Billy Carlucci and the Gang Show [+]/[-]

Picture yourself in a hot little club just off the Vegas strip sometime in the 1960s. Liza Minnelli and Buddy Hackett are there doing a cabaret act. You never know who’s going to walk on stage. Elvis. The Rat Pack. Some hot young singer who just flew into town. This show, which is rehearsed and taped before a live audience in a South Jersey restaurant is either the classiest karaoke party you’ve ever heard or a cheesy nightclub act worthy of a parody on SNL. Make no mistake about it, the performers CAN sing, and some better than others. You have to hear it to believe it. Better yet, go down and watch them do the show at Filomena's on Berlin, NJ.

The Moonman, The Moonman’s Southern Soul [+]/[-]

Not quite Motown but almost. That's the Moonman’s sound, Southern Soul. Born in Florence, SC, the Moonman has been bouncing around the South since the 60s, first on radio and then expanding into TV. Last heard on radio in Philly on WURD-AM 900, his long-running TV show Dance Connection now airs on WTVE-51. Part Don Cornelius and part Ron Joseph, the Moonman continues to stick with the grooves that made him famous.

Dr. Cosmo Nocturnal Transmissions [+]/[-]

Yes, it was about as creepy as its title. Doctor Cosmo's shows often revolved around a theme (songs about food or the color blue). Many of the episodes featured a live musical guest with the doctor (yes, he has a PhD in astronomy!) sitting in with them. Cosmo was a musician his own right as well as a radio pioneer, being one of the first radio DJs to use his iPod instead of the station;s turntables. Sadly, the good doctor left us on April 2, 2011 at the age of 56 while vacationing in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

Steve Cordasco, The Big Money Show [+]/[-]

Local financial advisor Steve Cordasco gives his take on the nation's economy and what the little guy should be doing to keep from going broke. Steve often has as his guests nationally-renowned economists and money experts who give listeners a different picture than what most big-media economy pundits put forth. Occasionally Steve gets accused of talking over the heads of the average listener. The show is now being heard in other cities besides Philadelphia. One of the best parts of his show is that his newsman has the initials RJ!

Pierre Robert [+]/[-]

A quarter century ago, this Frisco native drove his VW minibus all the way to Philly and became our biggest rock jock. Pierre Robert (pronounced Row-BEAR) is the last of the original WMMR DJs still at MMR. Most of the rest have been moved down the hall to the "classic rock" stations. Pierre plays a mix of the great old hard rockers (Sabbath, Stones, Dead), plus the younger rockers and even the occasional workforce block of local boys like Beru Revue and the Hooters. That's why we love him.

The two programs were later merged into what's now known as Music You Canít Hear on the Radio. Weingart has been there ever since.

Sid Mark, Friday with Frank, Sunday with Sinatra [+]/[-]

Sid Mark has carved a career out of playing Frank Sinatra's records and only Frank Sinatra's records. A fan from almost the beginning of Sinatra's career, Sid started out playing jazz and standards on the then-WHAT-FM as well s Sinatra since the mid 1950s. When the station flipped to all talk, Sid continued his all-Sinatra programs, which were the only music shows on the station. (96.5 lit up its stereo transmitter twice a week during Sid's Sinatra shows). Sid's popularity grew as his shows were syndicated and given national exposure, something that helped solidify Frank Sinatra's legacy as well. Following the demise of WWDB-FM, Sid's shows were picked up by Philadelphia's remaining full-time talk station, WPHT 1210 AM. They are now the only music programs on the station.

Mr. Various, The Worried Waltz [+]/[-]

This has got to be one of the most bizarre radio shows-music, talk or otherwise-on the air in the Delaware Valley. The host, often referred to as "Mr Various" or just The Worried Waltzer goes by a different "nomme de radio" every week. Each week's "episode" is more or less themed, revolving around some flavor of Baroque pop or ethnic and/or periodic sub-genre. Aside from the Waltzer's wry humor during talksets are the station IDs: often gross or blood-curdling sound effects and utterances; nearly anything but the station's actual call letters. If you have never heard the show, give it a listen. You will either come back for more. . . or you'll never listen to radio again.

Irv Homer, The Irv Homer Show [+]/[-]

This former Kensington bar owner with the gift of gab got into broadcasting later in life. At first he was a caller to local talk stations WXUR and WEEZ, phoning in and literally bugging the hosts whenever he had the time. WEEZ owner Ernie Tannen noticed Homer's talent and offered him a show on the station. Homer accepted. When the all-jazz WHAT-FM changed format and became the nation's first FM talk station (WWDB-FM), Homer was part of the group of well-known local talk show hosts that made the leap to FM. The rest was history. He became an activist, an advocate for people who wre being victimized by government agencies, particularly the IRS. For 25 years (from 1975 to 1999 until the station's format was changed) Homer had the noon-to-3 p.m. slot at the station where he often beat Rush Limbaugh in the local radio ratings. Following the demise of WWDB-FM, Homer, now in his 80s, would re-emerge again as a talk-show host on Levittown's WBCB-AM. Homer died what he loved doing most, talking and educating peoplel about politics, money and other important issues.

Jay Lamont, All About Real Estate [+]/[-]

For 30 straight years, this financial advice program focusing on real estate aired on WPEN-AM 950. During its entire record-breaking run the show was hosted by real estate educator and consultant Jay Lamont, who often humored listeners at the expense of insulting the unfortunate caller who fell victim to one of the many pitfalls of investing in real estate. In 1978, Larry Wexler, then an executive at Greater Media offered the young Temple University professor the chance to do on radio what he had been doing in the classroom. Jay accepted the offer and the rest was history.

In 2008, 30 years to the day he took the mic, Jay said farewell to WPEN. His time slot was filled by two addional hours of sports programming on what had become an all-sports-talk station. A year later, All About Real Estate was back on the air on talk station WNTP 990 but only briefly. Jay and the show disappeared from the airwaves after a month.

No, this Einhorn doesn’t keep his girlfriend in his trunk, and if he has a trunk it’s probably filled with some of the greatest British pop and rock records from the 60s, the 70s, the 80s and more.
