Deejay Paul Crowley, WKLO, Louisville, who recently
opened a local record shop and discount center, continues at
WKLO doing a nightly 6-9 p.m. show for a local drive-in
restaurant and the "Coca-Cola Hi-Fi Club of the Air" on Friday
and Saturday from 9 to 10:30 p.m. One whole wall of Cowley's
new store features autographed 8-by-10 glossies of record
artists, and Cowley would like personally autographed photos
of disk stars for the display, which "draws quite a bit of
traffic in the store." Three times a week Cowley visits by
long distance phone with Dick Clark. "It's Louisville's
only contact with Dick," notes WKLO program director Barney
Groven, "as we have no ABC-TV station and the NBC station
which carried one show a week recently dropped the service."
