I'm sorry to say Gary Shaw passed away today in Flordia. He was one of the original Zoo Crew at KZEW and one of the earliest contributors to this site as well. He was a great guy and will be truly missed. The video is a Gary Shaw Production from his My Space page.
Here's a rare look inside the W4 Detroit studio. It's December 26, 1970, just months before the change to the 'Progressive Rock' format, which brought W4 to the number two position in the Detroit radio market.
If you read chapter two of the ZOO history, you would know that KZEW in many ways originated in Detroit. Check out this cool film about Detroit's comeback and music scene...then and now. Goes to show everything comes full circle...well..hopefully. Enjoy...Zookeeper
It was 25 years ago this month, when Robert Plant was in Dallas rehearsing for his “Shaken ‘n’ Stirred” Tour, that kicked off later in the month in Vancouver. The ZOO had the "Plant Patrol" out to see if anybody could spot Robert around town. Contest winners got to come to the Las Calinas ZOO studios to see Robert do a live broadcast of "Rockline".
