Long Story Short

Chuck Blore is a legend in radio. He spent time on KTKT-AM in Tucson, KELP-AM in El Paso, KTSA-AM in San Antonio, KFWB-AM in Los Angles  and notably on 630 KDWB-AM in Minneapolis. This video is Chuck Himself relaying the story of a prank advertising campaign he played on every other station on the Minneapolis radio dial in 1959. It has been called the grandest radio stunt ever perpetrated. Gavin named him Radio Man of the Year in 1961 and he struck out on his own and started an ad agency in 1963.
