This is an interesting aircheck in the respect that DJ Dave (corrected) Scott promotes that his son Greg is going on – and does in this 16 minute scope of mid-60s “Audio KQV”.
KQV is a unique radio station from a number of different standpoints. First, it is still known by the only set of call letters ever issued to it dating all the way back to 1922. The station itself first went on the air in 1919, only weeks after the first station dedicated for broadcasting. WBZ Springfield MA. It took 3 years to get an actual broadcast license for KQV, however.
The top 40 era at KQV began on January 13, 1958. Many later-to-be famous deejays were heard on KQV over the years, including TV game show announcer Rod Roddy “…Come On Down!”, and somebody known as Jeff Christie. Christie would himself burst upon the national spotlight as national Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, on August 1, 1988.
These facts lend enormous credibility to a station that in any other market with it’s power output might have been lost to time decades ago. Jeff Roteman is a radio historian who built a tribute site for KQV. You can check it out HERE. KQV is today an all-news station. It’s website and live news stream can be accessed here.
As always, we appreciate audio donations. If you have a recording of KQV and wish to include it in our archives, please contact us.
