WABC played that record first in NYC IIRC, and it was on Dan's show. However, I don't remember Dan playing it over & over.
In doing that, WABC was stepping out of character, inasmuch playing a record from an unknown artist without any known data on sales. WABC never did that at the time & for many years to come.
I'm sure Rick Sklar had to OK Dan Playing it. I'll guess that any WABC DJ, even Dan, who played a record on their own w/o the OK from the boss would have an appointment on the carpet, to say the least.
