WCBS-FM Hall of Fame, Bruce Slutsky and Al Kooper

Only July 16th, I sent the following suggest to Brian Thomas, the program Director of WCBS-FM:

Subject: Suggestion for a WCBS-FM Hall of Fame

Brian - I have a suggestion for a future WCBS-FM Hall of Fame:

Rare and Well-done. Play a rarely heard hit by an artist and then follow it up with a song that is played often on WCBS-FM. Here is an example:

Beatles - Act Naturally
- I Want to Hold Your Hand

Bob Dylan - Just Like A Woman
- Like a Rolling Stone

Thanks for considering this suggestion

Bruce Slutsky
Flushing, NY

A got a two word response from him:

Great idea.

This was the theme of today's Hall of Fame on WCBS-FM. I actually got this idea from Al Kooper. A few years ago he released a 2 CD set - Rare and Well Done. I used his idea.

Hall of Fame features are played near the bottom of the hour. Since I was at work today, I only listened at 8:30 AM and 1:30 PM. They didn't acknowledge me over the air. They really should have given the credit to Al Kooper.
