Dale Seidenschwarz (Clyde Clifford)

Dale Seidenschwarz, aka Clyde Clifford, is the host of Beaker Street, a weekly freeform rock radio program.
Beaker Street, which first aired on KAAY AM 1090 from 1966 through 1972, was the first underground music program broadcast regularly on a commercial AM radio station. The show attracted a legion of fans across the western hemisphere with its pioneering format, which featured long album cuts from artists who otherwise would not get airplay.
Clyde is the prototype of the laid-back late-night DJ. His on-air comments are delivered softly and deliberately over a background of space music. Clyde was one of the pioneers of the album oriented rock format which became popular on FM radio in the 1970s.
