Jim Davis, 93/KHJ Los Angeles | 1976

Forget about Boss Radio. KHJ had a LOT going for it in the mid-70s, if nothing else, the programming and voice brilliance of Charlie Van Dyke at the helm of an L.A. legend. It’s difficult to outline the politics of radio in Los Angeles in this era. The staple KHJ jocks that listeners were used to in the Boss Era (1966-1970) were elsewhere on the dial, and that meant that a whole different gr...

1996 Presidential Debate, 103.7 KOUL Corpus Christi Tx

Election season is heating up now and we’d be remiss if we didn’t post this bit of election parody done for the 1996 Presidential Election. Actually, all this was from a Newsman whose talent was noticed by RKO general, way back in the big days of the Disco Duck era, as Rick Dees’ sidekick at WHBQ Memphis. This is the “Doc & McKeever morning show on KOUL. At the time, &...

Composite: WHBQ, WMPS, WDIA Memphis | 1972

This runs almost 24 minutes and may be somewhat confusing. Listen carefully because this is presented as one or two breaks from one station, then flips to another for a few breaks, etc. Other than being a somewhat muddy sounding recording – the tape is 42 years old after all, this is an excellent representation of the state of popular music radio in Memphis in the early 1970s. Don’t be...

Mitch Craig, 68 WMPS Memphis | Spring, 1973

“From the Gateway to Mid-America!…” The WMPS Top hour legal ID says it all. A Broadcast service of Plough, Incorporated, WMPS put up stiff competition to RKO General’s 56 WHBQ and for a while they even seemed to trade jocks! Mitch Craig is heard doing Afternoons. This is short and much of it was scoped before we got it in the Airchexx studio, but you will hear Casey Casem v...

George Klein, 56 WHBQ Memphis | Spring, 1973

George Klein, by 1973, was known nationally, and internationally, as Elvis Presley’s best friend. Aside from allegations of payola that circled around Kline, he never was directly accused. And this is good. One of the most influential Memphis Jocks and programmers in the 60s/70s, Klein certainly had his connections in Graceland. And he spent lots of time on the air at WHBQ. In later years, K...

Chris Curtis, 56 WHBQ Memphis | Spring, 1973

Contributor Rob Grayson has digitized more of his tape collection. This is from the first of six sent in this week. Rob writes: “More goodies… these were recorded all on the same day in Spring of 1973, and I think I got them from Memphis DJ Don Roberts (Barney Raines), straight off the radio. You will notice the actual signal noise artifacts in the deep background and at times you can ...
