The ROQs Jocks Legends

A somewhat serene & content Lee Baby Simms above
who worked the AM ROQ when it joined forces with the FM ROQ
(What's he got there, oregeno?)

The KROQers from around 1978,
The Insane Darrell Wayne in red slacks.

Mike Raphone, bearded tallest dude.
Jed The Fish, hilding his finger up.
Larry Woodside, purple Jacket.
Al Ramirez, far right.

Above, we have a vintage shot of Shadoe Stevens at The Fabeled KROQ D.J. booth, circa: 1977.
Below, The Ernest Mr. Frazer Smith, looking for a necessary cart to play over the air.

Welcome to FROM THE GARAGE blog!
Howdy, my name is Timmy...
Riff was good enough to allow me to make some comments & place a couple postings here.
And, I thought it would be a grand idea to let all the visitors actually see what
these KROQ D.J.'s look like...
Beginning with Sir Rodney From Bingenhiemer
who began his tenure at The ROQ's of Los Angeles in 1976,
& is still there to this very day!
Above he is seen posing with the band KISS,
next, Rodney is caught in action at his "Rodney's English Disco" sometime around the mid 70's

wow, that brings back some memories. I grew up in California, way out in the desert where all we could get was KLOS, but I remember trips to Los Angeles and listening to KMET and KROQ. "The Fraze" was the first morning guy I remember listening to regularly while he was at KLOS (late 70's time frame, I guess?)
