in 1973, KJR, Radio Scrapbook

This is the article in the Roosevelt High student newspaper to which my former teacher, Mr Prebezac, referred in Friday’s post. You have to be impressed by how insightful these kids were. I mean, really, they nailed it in the first paragraph.

… and still, this “Kevin O’Brien”, went on to become Howard Stern’s first boss in radio, who Stern hated so much.

Kevin was far from being Stern’s first boss.

Stern got into radio in the mid 1970s . . when Kevin was barely out of high school and working with me at KJR, Seattle.
