Don K. Reed’s Doo Wop Shop Christmas Special, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | December 24, 1994

Don K. Reed features two Christmas oriented Do-Wop albums this particular night, and while it’s not all Christmas music, there’s plenty peppered in on this Christmas Eve, 1994. This recording came by way of a mislabeled cassette. The recording, we know was from the Saturday night Do Wop Shop prior to Christmas day, which, in 1994, was Saturday, December 24th. How lucky to have this sho...

Chuck Leonard, 77 WABC New York | November 2, 1975

“WABC New York, All you Need to Win! Chuck Leonard(1) is holding court on a crisp, Fall morning on WABC! You’ll note right off that election day is coming up. Even if there wasn’t a label on the source recording, we would have known that the date of this broadcast was 11/2/75. Chuck Leonard(2) did Sundays, along with his night shift in 1975 and he clearly says it’s morning....

Mark Simone, 77 WABC New York | July 21, 2007

For those who never heard this show, WABC added this program right after WCBS-FM dropped oldies in favor of the “Jack-FM” format, trying to capitalize on the tremendous heritage that WABC had as a music station. Mark Simone is a consummate professional, able to host a talk show on WABC and be very serious talking politics, and yet still be a fantastic disc jockey – he should, hav...

“Today’s 93.1 FM” WPAT Patterson NJ

First, let me share a quick memory. Around the time this was recorded, perhaps earlier, I was driving down the NJTP, headed back to Norfolk, VA. The radio in my Buick Skyhawk was a Delco AM Stereo model, which had one problem with it. The FM Stereo mode burnt out. As in, FM would play in mono. Out of sheer irony, the AM side was superior, and for stations that were in AM Stereo, simply phenomenal....

Jerry St. James, WDRQ Detroit | August 1977

From contributor Paul Ford, Here is great aircheck from WDRQ 93.1 FM in Detroit… August 1977 with Jerry St James. Truly representative of many one-man morning shows at the end of the 1970s, here’s one from the FM dial… which at the time was still having difficulty competing with AM radio. Detroit, however, was in a different position, where the dominant Top 40 station for much of...

Lee Sherwood, 93 KHJ Los Angeles | January 23, 1981

I wanna pay somebody’s rent this morning…..     Please make a donation in any amount to help defray our hosting costs “The New” 93 KHJ was just two months old when this recording was made. There is a bit of history mentioned on the news (read by Lee Marshall) with the story of the Iranian Hostages being released this particular day, and that day in history, “...

Allen Beebe, KNFX “99.5 The Fox”, Bryan TX

Another, from Matt over at Big Apple Airchecks, in a series of ‘checks from Allan Beebe (WEZB, KMJC, KGBC, KNOE, WAPP, others). We’re trying to help Beebe get his collection of airchecks back by posting what we have of him here. Allen Beebe is doing the morning show on The Fox – a good sounding, albeit typical Classic Rock station in the heart of Texas. You won’t hear much ...

Don K Reed and The Do-Wop Shop, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | October 23, 1994

We’ll let ya in anytime seven to midnight… In the days before Jack-FM, CBS-FM had a number of great Oldies personalities and specialty shows. 1994 was perhaps the middle of the greatest era for this Oldies outlet (thought so by many whom I’ve talked to over the years), and the personalities who called this station home are fondly remembered even today! One such specialty program ...

Danuta, 94.9 KBZT San Diego | Sometime 1980

I wanna remind you about K-Best 95’s series of Friday Night Stereo TV Concerts… 1980 was a year of change in the radio landscape. FM radio was overtaking AM in many markets and San Diego was no exception. Heard here, about a year after changing formats and call letters from a Middle Of the Road format as KLRO-FM, K-Best 95 was doing its best as a Gold-Based, Adult Contemporary station,...

Charlie Cook, 1050 WHN New York | November 7, 1977

Charlie Cook is heard holding down the overnight on the old 1050 WHN, Running 30 minutes, scoped, you get the feel of how “New York’s Country Station” sounded in the second half of the 1970s. Notice what Country songs were being played. Much different than the fare being heard in the 80s, just a few years into the future. There was also an obvious lack of commercial content on WH...

Bobby Jay Composite, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | May 4, 1993 & June 2, 1995

“… Not only you’re my favorite DJ, you’re my favorite bass man as well…” Bobby Jay has always been one of our all-time personal favorite CBS-FM jocks. Your curator got to know Bobby when we were both on RadioMaxMusic internet radio. There is simply NO ONE around who knows 1950s Do-Wop music better than Bobby Jay! This is a composite aircheck, put together by our...

Bob Shannon with Freddie “Boom Boom” Cannon, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | February 4, 1995

From a cassette tape played with Dolby II (R) Noise Reduction ON (by mistake, I had intended to play back without NR as usual because I reduce noise digitally to keep the audio range as good as possible), here’s Bob Shannon’s weekend show on CBS-FM, and he certainly does not disappoint! Doing a special edition of his famous “Behind The Hits” segment, Shannon plays host, via...
