Scott Muni
Tonight I burn a candle for radio legend Scott Muni. Also known as "Scottso" and "The Professor" who died last night age 74. I'm sure that Greg and Carl will echo my sentiments expressing their own sympathies. If there was one person that helped ELP break into America it was the growly voice of Scott Muni.
 
I remember when ELP arrived at JFK in the early 70's, driving into NY City, Scott was playing all of "Pictures At An Exhibition" on WNEW. This was unheard of! For a DJ to play all of one side of a vinyl?
 
When ELP played Carnegie Hall, May 26 1971, we had Scott introduce us. Carnegie Hall, as everyone knows, is set for acoustic instruments but Scott had the audience lifting their heads above seat level to accept the barrage of sound that followed.
 
Greg, Carl and I would often pop by WNEW when we were in town. He'd allow us to browse the huge record library, allowing us to play our choice over the air.
 
Emerson, Lake and Palmer loved Scott!!! Not only because he played our stuff. We loved him for his honesty. There was no B.S. with him. He introduced us to other music...and that's why he became a father figure to us and everyone that listened.
 
God Rest His Rock n Roll Soul.
