ONE SWELL FOOP
"Wendell" was a writer and producer for Sweet Dick's KGIL stint in the mid-70s and currently has his own corner of
the internet containing thoughts and other comedic accidents. Sadly, he has not only stopped posting at this old blog
(Wendell.me), but has ditched his WENDELL nick name as well. HERE is selection of Sweet Dick related postings
on the old blog.
Without out a doubt, this is the biggest radio aircheck collection available on the internet! There are tons of
personalities and history to dropkick your modem into overdrive. You need to be a member to listen to their
collection. They now have a Sweet Dick aircheck!
This is a free radio aircheck site and they, too, have a Sweet Dick tape on tap; its the first hour of his KHJ debut
in 1983...technical glitches and all.
This station has gone through many formats and ownership for the past 20 years and tracking its changes is a small
task. Luckily, Wikipedia has managed to pin the details down.

author and has taken the lead character from his new book 'My Lush Life' and given her a blog.

Since a lot of this was based in the San Fernando Valley, we might as well take a step back and trace the history of
this urban-rama and these two site are a good place to start.
Eons ago, I submitted a scan of the postcard and a written piece about this place to the late great blog, MALLS OF AMERICA. The blogger cleaned up the card and posted my scribe with all sorts of NFS information following right behind in the comment section.

If you've read my central 'Sin Fernando' piece, the SFV suburb of Northridge sets largely in my memory and my
introduction to Sweet Dick. This large page offers a lengthy tour of this town without the SFV heat and humidity
