Vin at WPLJ and Zacherley

Episode 12 of the Kate and Vin Scelsa Podcast:

https://soundcloud.com/thekateandvinscelsapodcast/episode-12-vin-at-wplj-book-recs-and-that-time-zacherley-did-that-thing

First 20 minutes they talk mostly about Ernest Hemmingway, then get into the good stuff:

"And we're back! Still suffering from some technical problems forcing us to do this one over the phone, so apologies for the phone-style audio. We've got some book recs, the history of Vin's doomed first foray into mainstream radio as WPLJ attempted to co-op the counterculture with less successful results, and a story about DJ/professional character Zacherley's revenge upon the corporate radio format."
