He is an icon & a legend, known for being the first in the country to break many national hits. Here is what he had to say about one of his favorite groups, Pure Gold: “This is Porky Chedwick, the ‘Blonde Wonder’, the ‘Record Thunder’, the ‘Golden Ear’, telling you that the very talented Pure Gold will always greatly appear. They are the best in Doo Wop, the best in acappella, the best in harmony, the best in individuality, the best in all ranges. I know and everyone in the world knows that Pure Gold is America’s group. Dr. Spin has unending Pure Gold love within!”
