Jack Miller, WDRC Hartford | June 17, 1972

…Sue, hello Sue – that was terrible! Jack Miller did a weekly talent show on WDRC where listeners could call in and perform just about anything. It was, of course, all for entertainment, and some of the callers were truly awful. But, Jack Miller is the star of the show, and he DOES entertain. Shown here in this 14 minute original recording, Miller is a great host, who is much more than a disc jockey. His quick wit and ability to control this ‘talent’ show while playing along with the contestants, serves as a lesson to today’s radio people, that there’s far more to being a jock than playing non-stop music and talking like the kids in high school.

Chris Jagger, WIOQ Q102 Philadelphia | 1989

WIOQ was undoubtedly the outlet to turn to for the hits in Philly by the end of the 80s. Listening to this 12 minutes of CHR pleasure, Q102 leans Rhythmic, and features Chris Jagger.

Baltazar, WXGT 92X Columbus OH | 1989

Knowing almost nothing about the Columbus market, we present to you this just over five minute scope of Baltazar on WXGT. The station calls itself the NEW 92X, so it may have undergone a recent format change as of this recording. More 80s CHR courtesy of Robyn Watts.
