    Left to Right:
    Jonathan Brandmeier, Kevin Matthews, and duo Garry Meier and Steve Dahl. Kicked radio ass from the 80's to early 90's. Was able to listen to each of them daily one show right after the other.

    When Stern entered the market, it was icing on the cake.

    It was definitely the pinnacle of Chicago radio. Miss those days.

    Sue Delany-Leighton, the longtime DJ whose sultry voice San Diego listeners tuned in to on KGB-101.5 FM in the 1980s and ’90s, has died. A tribute to her was posted on the classic rock station’s website Friday.

    Delany-Leighton, called the “high priestess of afternoon-drive radio in San Diego,” in an April 28, 1989, San Diego Tribune column, was said to have been suffering from a number of health issues when she died this week, according to an NBC San Diego report.

    Delany-Leighton was a mainstay at KGB, where she was also co-host of the popular Delany & Prescott morning show.

    Delany-Leighton, a graduate of San Diego State University, lived in Los Angeles.

    Ha! Good question. I remember the long threads created at SFN debating on whether or not Stern copied from Dahl.

    Dahl, Brandmeier and Meier were a bit before my time, knew a bunch of Kevheads, but didn't really get into morning radio til I started listening to Stern.

    Dahl's name is the one that pops up most often as far as "inspiring" Howard. I'm not familiar with the guy at all.

    That was peak radio for anywhere in the country. In his prime Matthews was the best of the bunch. That was one talented MFer. I went to one of his live shows at the Riviera (the one when the heat malfunctioned) — comedy gold.

    This book explains how Howard was inspired by Steve Dahl. Apparently, early in Stern's career, Howard would listen to tapes of Steve Dahl's radio show. The author also mentions additional ways that Dahl inspired Howard.

    I didn't know until years later Dahl was behind that "Disco Sucks" craze. And Howard was behind the vote Sanjaya craze which was much more popular.
