Composite: Detroit/Windsor AM/FM | 1974

Detroit TapeGoing way back to the Fall of 2002, this has been sitting in our archived collection waiting for a time when we had a tape player that would actually play it.

In what should have been part of our “Old Gold” series (this would be tape #8), this contains clips of Detroit area radio. It was tempting to edit this and post each aircheck separately, but given the way this tape was put together, it seemed like a better idea to simply present this as heard on the tape, Side 1.

Where did this come from? Some collector, no doubt put it all together, as the Old Gold tape series we’ve had online since our first year on the web. The whole collection came to us from an annonymous source (his choice). What you hear is stored on the cassette pictured above.

Included on this (not necessarilly in order):

WHFI “Honey” “Nostalgia 95” (94.7) Birmingham, MI
CKLW Windsor, ONT
WNRS “FM Nine Four Country” Windsor, ONT
WXYZ Detroit
WDRQ Detroit
WPAG Detroit

  1. Corrections… “FM Nine Four Country” was CKLW-FM in Windsor. WNRS was AM 1290 in Saline, Michigan, a small city near Ann Arbor which did play country at that time. Also, WPAG, 1050 on the AM dial, was located in Ann Arbor, not Detroit.
