New England Radio Composite | April 1980

AM Radio was not dead in 1980, as evidenced by this excellent collection of airchecks from April of that year. From Maine to Massachusetts, WHEB to WBZ, here are some rare sounds that your webmaster hasn’t heard in over 30 years!

  1. Who’s the female announcer doing middays on the WBZ segment?

    • Janet Jenighilen (sp?), who laer became a talk-show host at WRKO.

  2. Jordan Rich is now the weekend overnight talk-show host on WBZ-1030.

    He must have literally been a kid back then!

    It also seems that WRKO-680 (which would go 24/7 talk a year-and-a-half later) was more of an adult contemporary sound during the day with more of a Top-40 slant at night.
