Salamon pens a piece for PBRTV

Ed Salamon, most recently the author of Pittsburgh’s Golden Age of Radio (Arcadia Publishing), recently sat down with Bob Mack to discuss Pittsburgh Oldies. Salamon says, “Bob Mack (McConnell) and “Mad Mike” Metrovich were two record collectors who took their passion for obscure rock and roll and rhythm and blues records to Pittsburgh radio in the sixties. Together, at their peak with Bob as entrepreneur and Mike as the front man, they helped to define a body of music known as Pittsburgh Oldies, songs well known to those who grew up in teh area, but still relatively unknown elsewhere.” You can read Ed’s entire article here.
