Dennis Elliot, 94.5 WPEZ Pittsburgh | 1976
Some say that a radio station’s storied past helps to guide the station’s present. Whether or not that’s true depends upon the station and market. Today’s Classic Hits format at WWSW might pull from its history as one of Pittsburgh’s legendary Top 40 stations, WPEZ.
This aircheck moves along at light speed, using a shotgun technique that many of the legendary AM top 40s of the 70s used. WPEZ was apparently an AM/FM combo, the AM being on 970 (Pittsburgh listeners who remember please comment on this), although it seems as though the AM was pretty much ignored.
I think you’ll really like Dennis Elliot here on PEZ. We really like Contributor Tom Lacko for sending in a skillfully mastered copy from the source tape way back in 2003.
Sometimes, you really have to wait for the good stuff!
