The Tridels (Philadelphia)
1964 - Land of Love / Image Of My Love (San Dee 1009)
Broadcast Pioneers member Mike Bove’s career in entertainment, broadcasting and media production spans some forty-plus years. A Temple University undergraduate in the mid 1960’s, Mike balanced his career as a musical performer and a broadcast student.
While working at Temple’s WRTI-FM and working on his studies in the school of broadcasting, Mike became WRTI’s program director in 1964 and Station manager in 1965. Through it all, Mike found the time to pursue his other love, performing as a member of a popular local vocal group, The Tridels
Performing at the university and other local venues, Mike and the group were signed to a recording and management contract with San-Dee Worldwide Limited Records in Philadelphia. In 1964, with their manager and promoter Gene Arnold, a future Broadcast Pioneer member, Mike and the Tridels released their first recordings.
With Hy Lit’s enthusiastic support, the group was recruited to perform at WIBG record hops throughout the tri-state area. Airplay in western Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan led to a successful Midwest tour in the summer of 1964.
In the summer of 1965, while continuing to perform with the Tridels, Mike joined MediaAmerica’s new 5000 watt station in Brookhaven, PA. WEEZ, the first full-time country station in the Philadelphia market. Mike filled the airways from 3-7 pm and was the station's production manager
