KQV one of the early radio stations to air Passages in 1981 was where Dennis Benson got his start on radio in Pittsburgh. Dennis hosted a youth-oriented conversation on the station called Rap Around. KQV at the time was one of the own and operated stations by ABC and was a top-40 m,sic station that captured that audience with some of the leading radio DJs of that time … Chuck Brinkman, Perry Marsahll, and Jim Quinn to name just a few.
