Let's put the "Card Party" on shuffle.
From 1964 to 1967, Dex Card
entertained listeners with his 2-6 p.m. "Card Party" show on WLS. One
highlight of his program was the "Silver Dollar Survey", where
he would count down the top hits on WLS's weekly Top 40 survey. Card - who
had previously worked in major markets like Boston, New York and Cleveland - would
later jock at rival WCFL before moving into
radio station ownership in Wisconsin. He sold his stations in 1989 and
is now retired from radio and living in Florida.
