Keene , Bob - Twist To Radio KYA Twist To Radio KYA
Pop New - LP DFLP 1222 Del-Fi
Sealed, Promotional Only 1961 Original Made Specifically For Radio Station KYA. “In 1961, Clarinetist And Ritchie Valens Discoverer/Producer/Manager Bob Keene Was Looking For A Promotional Opportunity For His Record Label, Del Fi.

He Pitched The Idea Directly To Local Stations As A "Local Album" Featuring Not Only The Participating Station's Disc Jockeys On The Album Cover--But Also Keene's Music. “I Can’t Remember Why It Was Ever Put Out,” Said Tom Wynn, Who Was One Of The Six Disc Jockeys Pictured (Second From The Right) On The Minneapolis Twist To Radio WDGY Album.” Radiouseonly.com... more details
