of WDRC's Friendly Five, Long John Wade, passed
away on Wednesday, May 15, 2006 at the age of 66. These pages
contain a great deal of information about John, who was one
of the few American disc jockeys who genuinely knew The Beatles.
John had radio in his blood. To the right is a picture of
him at the mic at New Hampshire's New Hampton School in 1958.
Right out of school he landed a job spinning the hits every
night at WHIL in Medford, MA.
