Bob "BC" Conwell

BobConwellBC sold advertising and as then, continues to be one of Progressive WOWI's biggest cheerleaders. Besides still carrying the torch for the station, he aired 'Rare and Imported Tracks' on WMYK-94 and featured a long-standing Progressive WOWI reunion show in the early 1980s that brought many of the original WOWI on-air personnel back for music offerings and discussions about what WOWI was and the effect that it had. Guests included Rollie Bristol, Dick Ross, Dave (but you can call me Nic) Nichols, Art Williamson, and others.

Conwell is to be credited with helping to piece together this history. Through Conwell's and cohort Gary Steinberg's heroic efforts, more than 20 hours of original programming and early 80s reunion shows is currently available.
