Another Porky Chedwick "Dusty Disc" Now that Porky is gone, I reflect back on the . I was working afternoon shift that week and thought if I left home early I could stop by and have Porky autograph an album I owned titled "WAMO's Golden Gassers" that pictured Porky on the cover with a feather duster in hand tending to some of his "Dusty Discs"

Cruisin' With Porky Chedwick.

George Jacob "Porky" Chedwick (February 4, 1918 – March 2, 2014) was an American radio announcer known to generations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as "The Daddio of the Raddio", "The Platter Pushin' Papa", "The Bossman", "Pork the Tork", and a host of other colorful nicknames. His career lasted from 1948 to shortly before his death in 2014

Cruisin' With Porky Chedwick. Cruisin' With Porky Chedwick. CD - Increase Records. A compilation of heavyweight doo-wop groups including the Flamingos, the Spaniels, the Del Vikings, the Skyliners, Harvey & the Moonglows, and Joe Turner - artists played by Porky Chedwick back in the day when he was Pittsburgh's hottest DJ. A short CD consisting of only 12 tracks (ten if you don't count "Porky's Intro" and "Porky's Theme").

Chess LP-1458 – Various Artists – Golden Gassers. This is an original Chess Records release, and a little bit of collector geek history is, as usual, presented below. This is one of the first records I ever remember hearing – going as far back as toddler years. There was a national version and at least 3 others: Pittsburgh featuring Porky Chedwick, New York City featuring Murray the K, and San Francisco. There may have been others.

And Porky Chedwick practiced what he preached, refusing to play rip off covers of "race" classics by white artists such as Pat Boone's cover of Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" or Elvis's cover of "Hound Dog" by "Big Mama" Thornton or the Jerry Lee Lewis version of Big Maybelle's 'Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' O.  . Porky, for them and their music, was the way out of the dustbins and bargain shelves and on to the airwaves. We'll leave the last word to the late, Bo Diddley, "The Originator" as he was called because of the key role his music played in the transition from blues to rock. Any entertainer of my era who says they don't know who Porky Chedwick is, they're damn lyin'!" big bad Bo once declared. He's the cat that played the records I know. Spin one more platter up there for us, beloved daddio of the radio.

Porky Chedwick was born George Jacob Chedwick (he later changed his name to "Craig"), on February 4, 1918 in Homestead, Pennsylvania, one of ten children of a steelworking father, whose wife died when Porky was still a child. His was a close-knit, culturally and racially diverse neighborhood, which he often compared to "a secluded island," where things such as one's skin color simply didn't matter. He would work at various other stations in the Pittsburgh market until executives from Sheridan Broadcasting (WAMO's parent company) asked him to come back in 1992.

One of the first disc jockeys to play black music on US radio. March 10 2014, 12:00am, The Times. Chedwick, the ‘Daddio of Radio’Darrell Sapp/Post-Gazette. This is Pork the Tork, your platter-pushin’ papa; my name’s not John Wayne, it’s Porky the insane, and I’m here to fry your brain! With his selection of rumbustious proto-rock’n’roll tunes and his claim to have more moves than Allied vans, it is little wonder that the US disc jockey Porky Chedwick was known as the Daddio of Radio
