Here’s an aircheck donated by Ellis B. Feaster. It’s, perhaps, one of the most eclectic radio stations ever posted here. The format, as heard here, is essentially everything. In fact, the show which Don Kelly is hosting is called, “All About Everything”! Indeed, you’ll hear Barbara Streisand, elevator music, comedy and even “Drive My Car” from The Beatles! It appears that the normal ‘format’ of this radio station wasn’t much different, in terms of musical variety.
