GEORGE "HOUND DOG" LORENZ WBLK Buffalo, N.Y. August 4, 1965 (unscoped)
The Hound is on the prowl!
Hound Dog Lorenz left WKBW with the station about to switch to a Top 40 format in 1958. Six years later, "The Hound" had his own station - WBLK - an FM station that specialized in the music Lorenz loved - R&B. For the last eight years of his life Lorenz poured his heart and soul into the "House That The Hound Built." It was a sad day in Buffalo radio when The Hound passed away in 1972, but his house still stands, still playing urban music at 93.7.
Enjoy George "The Hound" Lorenz on WBLK from August 4, 1965 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
