Charlie Brown & Sign Off, 1190 WBMJ San Juan | August, 1968

Date of Recording: 08.xx.68 Station: 1190 WBMJ San Juan, Puerto Rico Format: Top 40 Featured Air Personality: Charlie Brown Contributor: Karl Phillips Total Time: 24:10 Airchexx Entry: 1,523 Curator’s Notes: This dovetails nicely with the Scott Brady aircheck posted recently. Recorded a bit prior to this one, WBMJ is using a wide selection of PAMS 60s classic jingles. The formatics are right out of the ABC ‘mainland’ playbook, and WBMJ has the entire English speaking market to itself. This was recorded during the afternoon show and includes the final half hour or so right up till sign off.

Thom Whetston and I are acquaintances and he has posted my airchecks from AFRS 1484 Keflavik from 1971 on his site.
