We received this one by email from Jon London himself, who writes: Hey! I just heard me on KD! Pretty cool….. I didn’t say much though. Here’s something from KS95 when I was over there for a couple of years. Feels good to contribute. Ok Jon! We don’t know the exact date of your aircheck but we’re guessing 2004.
Contributor Ray Bozzanca sent this in some time ago. The source recording was obviously made for someone wanting the music only, as the tape was a 40 minute reverse-scope with most of the deejay talk and imaging removed… but what remains of this station’s identity is presented here. This is from a short period in the history of WPAT-FM, which at the time was still an AM/FM simulcast. WPAT had then recently gone soft AC out of a longtime Beautiful Music format, and was programming to New York City proper, from its signal in New Jersey. Later in the 90s, WPAT AM and FM would each get separate Spanish Formats and leave the English language audience permanently. Runs 3:30, Scoped.
Every now and then a new WABC aircheck appears out of the woodwork. From contributor Paul Ford is this brief composite of a day on the air at MusicRadio 77 starting with Harry Harrison in the morning, then moving on to the late, great Ron Lundy, Dan Ingram, Cousin Brucie, Chuck Leonard and even Jay Reynolds! The audio quality is superb, as is the reverb and those great PAMS jingles used in ’72!
