When someone turns up an item on my want list that's been on said want list for forty years or so well, mere email isn't enough.
A shout-out, then, to John Quincy, program director for WTMA/WTMZ in Charleston, South Carolina (and miles around), who in his disguise as mild-mannered archivist and Webmaster Ted Tatman has a lot of stuff from the days when WTMA was the dominant Top 40 station on the Carolina coast, things which I heard zillions of times a day in the Sixties and missed a heck of a lot in the subsequent decades including the single most elusive 45 I've ever sought, which wasn't even a commercial release in the strict sense but to this day makes for a reliable earworm.
Thanks, Ted. If I find anything in this ol' footlocker that fits your archives, it's yours.
