John Records Landecker, 89 WLS Chicago | March, 1988
I’m struck by just how warm WLS sounds. Warm as a descriptive word meaning entertaining and comfortable. Landecker is perfectly at home as a talk show host, although this is NOT a talk show, or a talk station. More, perhaps, a variety show at this point in the evolution of WLS-AM.
Take note of Landecker’s announcement that Tom Snyder begins airing that night at Midnight. Snyder was syndicated nationally by ABC and was another milestone in WLS’ move from music to talk – a move that would take almost another year and a half to complete.
