Baltimore Radio Dj 'fat Daddy'

Recommended Posts

Fat Daddy & Hot Rod were just about the best radio DJ's on the Baltimore airwaves back in the 1960's ....

Both were so popular that they could lead to a 45 breaking out nationally just because they were playing it in Baltimore.

As a result of their work (+ that of the other local soul radio DJ's) Baltimore became just about the major city to 'BREAK' sounds in back then.

Both ran there own promotions (live shows) & lots of the acts would play free for them as it kept them in the DJ's good books and helped ensure that their current & next records were played n the radio in the city.

Both DJ's organised big shows down on Carr's Beach & these featured so many acts on each bill, they had to bus all of them out to the venue from Baltimore.
