I recently interviewed “Chucker” (formerly from WKBW, WFUN, WTIX + others) and assembled a fast paced 45 minute audio documentary that combines the Q&A with sample airchecks from each station he was at. I put the whole thing together with special thanks to Matt Seinberg, for access to the master reels that belonged to Chucker.
What you will hear is simply a wonderful piece of work. Scott Lowe describes this interview:
“The Chucker Revolution”
In the 70â€™s, Chuckerâ€™s career stops included Top 40 heavyweights like WKBW Buffalo, WFUN Miami and WTIX New Orleans. Today, he calls himself Dr.Dr. and owns Oldies, WZPH-LP “The Zephyr” in Zephyrhills, FL.
How did Chucker wind up on the station roof to talk down a man with a gun? Did he really sink his PD’s boat during a casual jock meeting? How many centuries would it take to play one billion songs in a row? Originally produced in late 2009 for Big Apple Airchecks, Scott Lowe sat down with â€œDocâ€ for a fast paced interview that answers all of these questions and features classic airchecks from his career. You will also hear on-air samples from WRIT Milwaukee, WFLB Fayetteville, WGOW Chattanooga and much more!
Note: Former WFUN DJ Alan Polasky has partnered with another WFUN jock to create a great tribute site to the great WFUN 790 – Click this link to head to www.wfuntribute.com. Thanks to Alan Polasky for sending along the correction!
