Stevens & Grdnic: Somewhere Over the Radio

Ron Stevens & Joy Grdnic were rock DJs from 1971-1979 on St. Louis' KSHE-FM 94.7, Joy a morning host, Stevens an afternoon jock. They eventually married and in 1979 moved to California, where they recorded their first album for Takoma Records. They did morning-show host stints for stations in New York and San Diego, and were contributing writers for WKRP in Cincinnati. Throughout the '80s and into the '90s their Stevens & Grdnic Radio Network comedy bits were syndicated on open reel to stations all across the U.S. Lots of the material sticks to the wacky-radio milieu of fake ads, song parodies, and bizarre interviews, but more than three decades on it's still pretty hilarious.
