Mike Hotaling, WQBK/WQBJ “The Edge”, Albany NY | Winter 1994

Description by Mike Hotaling:

“Here’s a check of WQBK/WQBJ The Edge, Wintertime 1994. Lots of phones, good quality. Towards the end of this one is my interview of local Albany TV legend Ralph Vartigan. It is a great trip down memory lane as Ralph talks about the early days of television. I’m so glad I somehow saved this one.”

    The song “Wonderwall” from Oasis wasn’t released until the Fall of ’95, so this aircheck could not have been recorded in ’94.
