Here’s an item from Rockin’ In Quad regarding Mike Sakellarides:
“Michael left KQ4 for a jocking gig at 62 KGW and we all wondered if he would use his real name. That was back in the days when the rule for popular radio was: ‘Three syllables, non-ethnic.’ Well, true to form, KGW grabbed the jock jingle package at the bottom of the pile and came up with Mark Stevens. At least Mike got to keep his initials.”
So, there’s a typical example for you.
