Stern Buries Debella; The 90s Radio War
Back in the 80’s the number one morning radio show in Philadelphia was hosted by whacky, walrus mustached John DeBella and his Zoo Crew. Their light hearted pranks, high energy interviews, and endlessly entertaining sound effects kept drivers occupied on the long waits in Schuylkill expressway traffic. But quick on his heels was drive-time rival Howard Stern, soon to be the most famous shock jock in the world. Don’t touch that dial cause today we’re going to dive into local radio history.
