“ROYAL ORDER of REGEN BURGERS”

___

On WKNR, by year’s end 1966, the expression “Burger” or “Burger Club” became a popular, self-promoting prop (or station gimmick) to further retain, “entice” the station’s large Detroit teen following with one other great reason to “keep listening” to the Scott Regen show on Keener 13.

If you signed up for the “Burger Club,” the popular WKNR DJ, “Scott Burger,” whose picture bore on the card as well, would call out the member’s number (printed on the card) for various station prizes, giveaways during his 7-10 nightly show, 1966 and 1967.

Oak Park, MI. very own The Shy Guys even paid tribute to Scott Regen with “The Burger Song” they wrote, produced and recorded in dedication to “Scott Burger” in 1966! 🙂
