You guys are absolutely right. The person who sent this to me wrote the date as 1984 and I should have caught it based upon the music. I’m gonna stick with February 4, I just think he got his wires crossed when printing the year. I have fixed the title.
Isn’t this post “HOT HITS” – in this aircheck they seem to have gone away from saying HOT HITS. Somehow I remember the real HOT HITS was on WBBM closer to 81/82. I believe this aircheck from 86 features a much wider playlist and a much looser on-air presentation.
I’m the guy with the ridiculously low voice saying B96.. Remember this was way before digital audio. I wrapped the capstan on the reel to reel then recorded. When I cut the splicing tape off that is how I sounded. Smokin’ Joe was and still is a good friend and an excllent talent. I may have some Hot Hits tape from B96. When I became Production Director we were still running that format. I have reels of tape that won’t play without baking them.
