Contributor Keith Teicher submitted this timely audio of Cleveland legend Chuck Collier on the occasion of the broadcaster’s untimely death.
this is an aircheck of Chuck Collier on WCBS-FM in NYC from the summer of 1975. Yesterday Chuck died of a heart attack. He had worked at WGAR AM and FM in Cleveland for 30+ years, with just a two year stint at WCBS-FM.

Some of the truly wonderful things about this aircheck are the age and quality of the recording. From 1975, WCBS-FM at this point in time, is a hybrid Oldies/Contemporary station. Note the reference to “future gold” – there was even a SURVEY out every week! This is from Keith Teicher’s own tape collection and like most of his submissions, this tape doesn’t even show its age! Listen to the original (and I mean, the FIRST generation) of WCBS-FM Oldies jingles, nicely woven into the fabric of the WCBS-FM Oldies format.
