Jeff Goodrich, 93.1 WDRQ Detroit | 1972

Contributor Paul Ford sent this in a while back… it’s 1972 and DRQ is airing The Last … Contest. Certainly wasn’t the last contest ever aired on WDRQ, nor anywhere else, but the contest voicers sound the same no matter what station it was done on (can you say KCBQ?).

The audio quality on this is fair. The jock’s name – Jeff Goodrich, part of the early Top 40 staff of WDRQ after their launch as the nation’s first All-News FM station in 1971. That failed miserably, but if it were done today… well well well, probably would have a winner on their hands, who knows.

This is a real classic for your listening pleasure!

    It was the best of times – ALL NEWS – and talk radio, about 15 years ahead of its time. I was proud to be part of it.
