Was it just me or did anybody else think that Poorman was the splitting image of Ron Jeremy? KWest was on... 105.9!

Except for one predominate feature, Poor Man did look like Ron, the dong.
Was anyone listening to KROQ (way back) when a) when they played AC/DC and b) got kicked off the air for a while after using some 'foul' language in the early '70's

While we're on the topic of ancient L.A. radio, who still remembers K-WEST? I don't remember their frequency, but their tag line was "Crank it to the right... ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT!" , and they had a great TV spot with a sexy chick silhouetted in the shower, grooving to Zeppelin's "The Wanton Song". When she opens the shower door, it's actually an old lady in a shower cap, and she says "K-WEST - TURN IT UP!!" (or something like that...)
I remember that same commercial in Detroit in the mid seventies for WDRQ-FM.

I look back on KNAC with fond memories too. I used to listen to KNAC in '86 when I lived in N. Long Beach screwing around in my garage with guitars & cars all weekend.
