Peter Wolf

 

I first met Peter Wolf, lead singer of the J. Geils Band, in 1977. It was a Friday evening and this was to be my very first show as a DJ on WBCN. I had just returned from MCing a gig at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston for the Ramones, Talking Heads, and Eddie & the Hot Rods. From the stage I announced that punk rock would finally be heard on WBCN.

Wolf was hanging out with the great Little Walter who did an Oldies show on BCN in the day. As I wandered into the studio with my purple hair I looked at Peter and said “Joey Ramone?”   He grinned and responded “Gabba Gabba Hey.”
