  1. If you get Sherman to fire up the way back machine to the early eighties you will hear this song almost every day. Where might you ask? Frosty was obsessed with this tune and he played it at least twice a week. That was before NW went all talk. Frosty would spin a platter every day.

  2. Hey 13, do you remember when Rick Honey and Doc Harris would come on NW and play a tune? ‘Its time for another one in a row’. I think NW still plays one or two in a row, but its just on Christmas day.

  3. Banter between Frosty and Neil Mcrea, Jen Thompson and anyone that wanted to test Frostys ability to ad-lib made h is show great listening. The rock jocks Doc Harris and Honey were also great listening. My all time favorite rock DJ was JB Shayne aka Captain Midnight.
