RJ, Ron Joseph and Dick Clark June 1960 at the WFIL-TV Studios 46th and Market Streets in Philadelphia
This photo was taken in June of 1960, right around the time that Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT's RJ, Ron Joseph was graduated from Upper Darby High School. It was at the first Bandstand reunion show and took place at the WFIL-TV studios. By the way, RJ is holding a picture of himself at the age of three.
A point of interest is that Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT's Ron Joseph was telling Dick Clark that he, RJ, had just been hired for his first paid radio job as the nighttime air personality on WEEZ in suburban Philadelphia.
Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT's RJ, Ron Joseph was a dancer on Bandstand, both as a local show and a network program. RJ wasn't the only Cruisin' 92.1,WVLT air personality to dance on the Bandstand broadcast. Our very own, Geator with the Heator, Cruisin' 92.1's Jerry Blavat also was one of the kids on the show. The Legendary Jerry Blavat can be heard daily right here on Cumberland County's #1 Oldies Station, WVLT from 5 to 7 pm.
The Bandstand program originated out of Studio B at the Channel 6's 46th and Market, West Philadelphia studios. In the adjacent facility, Studio C was Sally Starr ready to take to air waves with her ever popular "Starr Theater."
An interesting fact was that WFIL-TV station management used the same crew for both Bandstand and Sally Starr. The camera guys would unplug their headsets, run out the door of Studio B, run around the corner in the hallway and dash into Studio C. Then they would plug back their headsets to the Studio C cameras and go on the air with the Legendary Sally Starr. All this during a station break.
Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT's RJ, Ron Joseph is and has always been, The King of DISCO. Check him out every Friday evening from 7 pm to 9 pm on South Jersey's #1 Oldies Powerhouse, Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT. Remember, every Friday is DISCO FRIDAY on your Oldies Leader, WVLT, Cruisin'92.1. Follow the Leader!
RJ is just one more reason why WVLT is Cruisin' 92 point NUMBER ONE!
