In no way does it diminish Porky Chedwick's monumental achievements to note that he was the Last Man Standing in a very elite group: the tiny cadre of white American disc jockeys in the West and and Deep South who pioneered playing black R&B for a wider audience. Every one made a difference in their territory, as Porky did here in the east. Most began roughly the same time Porky did. Alan Freed isn't on this list. He started later, and his story's already well known. Likewise, Wolfman Jack, inspired by Freed, was a "next generation" personality who began much later than Porky or the others below. None of the legends below played a role anywhere near Porky in creating the oldies concept. That was his alone.
