Typical 80s CHR, a bit more urban than mainstream, and one jock named JB Lewis. Okay, so JB doesn’t have a big set of pipes… but he does run a tight, upbeat show and that counts for something, right? No jingles on this station. At least none on this aircheck. Perhaps someone knows the history of WBLX. If so, we’d love to read your comments!
Contributor Mike Raub sent us this incredible recording! WABB was doing Top 40 in 1964 with lots of reverb and personality! Wayne Moss is filling in the morning show for normal show host Wayne Dean. Not sure if this was standard at WABB, but the jock acts as Newsman and apparently voices everything. Listen as Boss pauses often (rather than stumble over his words), making sure to get pronunciations right. The reverb is used ad-nausea during the newscast, turned all the way up when they announce what community a particular story is from. This is mainly a recording of the news, but we do get to hear some in-format stuff.
