ALL ACCESS sends its heartiest congratulations to L.A. club and radio icon RODNEY BINGENHEIMER, host of KROQ/LOS ANGELES' long-running "RODNEY ON THE ROQ," who received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the OC MUSIC AWARDS, reports The OC REGISTER. RODNEY was credited for first identifying and then providing radio exposure for generations of bands, including groups from the OC, who would go on to achieve major success.
One of those OC bands, NO DOUBT, took part in a video with DEBORAH HARRY and others in saluting him at the ceremony. After receiving the award, BINGENHEIMER offered heartfelt remarks by urging the talent on hand to "send me more CDs. I'm there (on the air) at midnight, so stick around."
