Don't remember Goree, but everyone on the South Side knew of Daddy-O. My
radio loyalties fastened on the same station and its holy trinity: Jam with
Sam, Rock with Rick, and Bounce with Benson. Reception was quite good at 61st
and Halstead, much to the consternation of my pious Irish mother, who
thought that anything beyond Ave Maria was blasphemy.
