Longtime GREATER MEDIA Rocker WCSX/DETROIT night slammer STEVE KOSTAN has been inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME.
THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM has just unveiled a complete museum redesign telling the story of rock and roll in a more linear fashion. The entire museum's technology has been updated, including the interactive kiosk "On the Air: Rock and Roll and Radio."
WCSX morning show host KEN CALVERT interviewed HOWARD KRAMER, Curatorial Director at THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM, and KOSTAN. KRAMER said, "There are a number of people we identified who we felt were really great exemplars of people who helped promote Rock and Roll, and STEVE certainly falls in that category. I grew up in SOUTHFIELD and radio was my first love. Hearing voices like STEVE's and KEN's (CALVERT) and KAREN's (SAVELLY) and ARTHUR PENHALLOW helped occupy my formative years. STEVE was the guy who stood behind local music, and I thought that was an extremely brave thing to do. And STEVE stuck with it, and I felt he deserved it."
KOSTAN said, "I was lucky enough to come along at a great and exciting time to be on DETROIT rock radio. There was a fantastic DETROIT music scene and I was able to stay in town the whole time and keep at it."
