From Wikipedia:

Stephen C. "Steve" Propes (b. about 1943) is a Long Beach, California record collector, disc jockey, and writer.

During the 1980s, Propes hosted an oldies/rhythm and blues radio show on KLON which had a large effect on the classic R&B revival of the time. He interviewed dozens of blues and R&B legends, such as Joe Turner, Lowell Fulson, Ruth Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Bo Diddley, Ike Turner, Hank Ballard, Bobby Day, Richard Berry, Don Julian, Brenton Wood, and Eugene Church, as well as doo-wop enthusiast George Carlin. He has since hosted a similar show on Simmons Cable television in Long Beach.

He is known for his collectors' books listing the monetary value of rock 'n' roll records. In 1989, Propes founded the Southern California Doo-Wop Society, with the help of some students from a rock 'n' roll history class he taught at Cal State Long Beach in the mid-'80s.

According to his entry at "LA Radio People", "Steve does consulting work in the history of rock & roll, record evaluation for the biggest company in the rare record business, Good Rockin' Tonight and he is heard on RockitRadio.net."

Steve Propes writes for Beachcomber, a Long Beach-based magazine. In February 2015, he wrote a lengthy article detailing the history of Long Beach radio stations.
