Scotty Brink was brought in from KHJ/Los Angeles to program WRKO in February,
1972, during its "Album Rock" days and left in 1973 when the station moved to
high-energy Top 40 programming under new Program Director, Paul Drew. According
to Brink, the first thing he did as P.D. was to add Led Zeppelin's Stairway
While he had been a major-market on-air talent in cities such as Chicago and
Philadelphia, Brink was never on the air at WRKO, ― except when Dale Dorman
literally had problems getting his car started one particularly-cold winter
day, when Scotty was forced to arise extra-early, and fill in, until "Uncle
Dale" was able to slide into the station's parking facility.
Note that while this aircheck is abbreviated, Dale does show up in the full
version...and he warmed up quickly and went right to work with the funny stuff
he's famous for!
According to Scotty, "I did spend a few months as JJ Jordan at WOR-FM
New York right after returning from VietNam in the spring of '68. I was then
transferred back to KHJ in the fall, and used my own name again. JJ was a Drake-created
moniker (and one he really loved). A few years later they passed it on to our
Dallas buddy, who then became the real JJ Jordan."
