Dave Hull, “The Hullabalooer,” is recognized as one of the most iconic of all the Top 40 DJs to ever spin the wax over 50,000 watts of AM radio power. Hull rocked L.A.’s legendary KRLA as its number one personality during the station's premier years. He went on to rock, honk, spin, and giggle at other giants like KFI, KGBS, and KMPC. The Hullabalooer had his own massive fan club, a nightclub named after him, and even a hit song written about him.
From Dave's honorary title of the "Fifth Beatle" for his insider involvement with the Fab Four; to his ground-breaking Lovelines show; to stunts like "Hulloween," the junky parade float, and the hot air balloon promotion that didn't exactly "fly"; to his KFI years with the Dodgers and the Pete Rose voodoo doll; to the "cry-in" after his KRLA firing—it's all here in Hullabaloo!
The book also features contributions by Dave's notable colleagues and costars, including a Foreword by radio and TV legend Bob Eubanks, and sidebars by baseball hall-of-famer Wes Parker, KFI sportscaster Rich Marotta, media mogul Gary Kleinman, and Mousketeer-turned-maniac, author J.J. Solari, who helped to turn Dave's Lovelines show into a nearly certifiable radio circus.
With its revealing look into the inner circle of Los Angeles radio during the golden years of AM, Hullabaloo! is a must-have for any fan of radio, music, or just plain fun!
