Old Gold 1971 Remastered, Part 1 of 4

Going WAY back to the beginning of this website – well, okay, WAY back to the days when the radio industry trade circulated audio specials on vynl, here’s a completely re-mastered copy of one of the very first exhibits we had on airchexx way back in 2002! Old Gold was actually a vynl print – well, one could find it on vynl and on cassette in later years. The original copy we had obtained was on a worn out cassette and very muffled, but back then we were happy to post anything. Now, taken right from the record itself, a copy of Old Gold 1971. I’m posting this in four parts for easier listening. Beware, the vynl skips about 3 minutes in, during the WWDJ aircheck.. but not badly.

News & Dusty Rhodes on Real Oldies 1530 WSAI Cincinnati | January 6, 2003

On this very short clip of WSAI, recorded only SIX days into the new Real Oldies format, you get a feel for the retro format of the station.

Your comments are invited below.

No, back then, FM stations would take album cuts and popular rock songs and play the album versions, and it sure wasn’t all hard rock, although to be sure, there was a lot of hard cuts in the format. Enter WSAI-FM. It’s AM sister station was a true Top 40 station with all the formatics intact. On this QuickCheck, you’ll hear ‘Vinnie’ doing a flawless show. Remember now, its the mid-70s, there are NO jingles, NO imaging, just the jock and a bunch of Rock Albums. You get 4 1/2 minutes, scoped. Also, investigating info on WSAI-FM, we came across this link for the Cinci...
