Dale Knippers, 103.7 WSOC Charlotte – 2001

New Contributor Dale Knippers debut aircheck is actually a 5 minute scope of his show on 103.7 WSOC. WSOC has been a Country station for a long time, starting way back in 1971. It was once the home of the late Bill Dollar, and has been re-branded more than a few times over the years.
