1580 WPGC / 95.5 WPGC / Washington DC

Jim Elliot & Don O’Day on WPGC AM & FM Morningside | September 23, 1977

This is Musicradio WPGC! From sometime in the 70s, a really GREAT morning show featuring lots of elements to make you smile. A Gong Show type contest at just before the hour… Dan O’Day and “Choose Your News” (some may remember this feature at WLS Chicago), and more!

Overall, this apparently right out-of-the-skimmer tape is fantastic! WPGC would eventually morph into an Urban station in the 80s, but untl then, what an amazing Top 40 station this was!

  1. This aircheck is from the morning of September 23, 1977. Jim makes a reference that “the weekend is just around the corner” which means it was very likely a Friday; and he also makes a reference that “the ‘skins open up their home season Sunday against Atlanta at RFK” which could have only been the September 25, 1977 game.


  2. Jim Elliott…Great “Overnite” Man on 68/RKO in ’72-’73 ! So Listenable ! A “thinking man’s” Radio Personality !
