November 17, 1977: Talking Heads and Q-104 DJ Lin “Reverend of Rock & Roll” Brehmer gather at Just a Song record store in Albany, prior to making their Nippertown debut at UAlbany’s Page Hall – opening for the Good Rats…
Just the other day, we were quite fondly reminiscing about one of our all-time favorite Nippertown radio disc jockeys – Lin Brehmer, “The Reverend of Rock and Roll,” on WQBK-FM, or as it was better known in the day, Q104.
During his Albany days, we played softball against Lin and his Q104 team, the Pink Flamingos. We played music with Lin, too. And we think that it’s quite possible that we might have shared a few adult beverages together, too.
