I thought up the program but Rich Capparela is person who made it happen. His deep knowledge and love for the music was, and still is, contagious and passionate. Rich hosts morning drive now on KUSC, LA.
There wasn't much money at the start -- just enough to pay for the satellite time. Rich Capparela lifted CLASSICAL COUNTDOWN to remarkable success. I am forever grateful to him. I am proud to call him a friend.
I found a promo kit for QUARTERDECK CLASSICAL COUNTDOWN. QuarterDeck, a go-go software company, bought an exclusive national sponsorship for a six figure amount. Scroll down to items from the promo kit:
SLIDE ONE: PROGRAM HISTORY
SLIDE TWO: CLOCK
SLIDE THREE: CARRIAGE LIST (3 pages)
SLIDE FOUR: LA TIMES STORY WHEN CLASSICAL COUNTDOWN WAS LAUNCHED
SLIDE FIVE: PRINT AD USED IN CURRENT, RADIO & RECORDS & BROADCASTING
