Contributor Jay Sawyer sent this in without comment. From sometime in the 1980s, the old “Z93” CHR station is sampled from the weekend airing of American Top 40 with Kasey Kasem. The voice, we assume, is that of the contributor, doing the Top Hour IDs and the two weather breaks. And that’s all you hear from this less-than-two-minute sample from an era long gone. Aircheck #1,392 since May 2, 2002!
Courtesy of Karl Phillips, it’s not long and it’s not the best audio quality but here’s a bit of Mark Stewart on Atlanta’s longtime CHR leader, Z-93!
Contributor Karl Phillips checks in with yet another Atlanta offering. Going WAY back to 1973, its just about the beginnings of WZGC (92.9 FM), the station known as Top 40 Z-93. This is a composite, featuring Brian Drake from ’73, Jerry Cook from 1974, Ross & Wilson from 1979, Randy Reeves from 1979 and Dale O’Brien from 1979. The audio quality isn’t really that good and we tried to clean this up as much as possible by nulling out the left channel and remastering to mono (the left side was terribly distorted), but there is still a lot of noise in this final cut. Such is sometimes the case with these old tapes.
