A Tribute to John Mack Flanagan

John Mack Flanagan was one of the great broadcasters from the West Coast. Legendary, in the minds of many people, including his peers in the broadcasting industry, his many friends and his fans in the Bay Area. It’s only fitting on the occasion of his passing on Saturday, March 31st, 2018 (Corrected), that we do a little something to pay tribute to a man who meant so much to so many. The following is a new aircheck that I compiled partly from my own files and from the archives of this website. Much of it is an interview I did with John on 1400 WSTC Stamford, CT on June 7, 2017 during my live show to talk about his book, Tight and Bright – available on Amazon.com. It then continues with an aircheck of him from 10/15/76 on KFRC. I sincerely hope this touches his many fans and fri...

Sample Hour of 1400 WSTC Stamford CT | June 7, 2017

Date of Recording: 06.05.2017 Station: 1400 WSTC Stamford, Connecticut, USA Format: Full Service Oldies/Variety Hits Featured Air Personality: Steve West (Steven Sawyer) Contributor: Steve West Airchexx Entry: 1,495 Comments: Perhaps the very first thing that should be mentioned with regard to this aircheck is the fact that because of the way we performed ‘live’ shows, every element was tracked – albeit five minutes before it aired so that the effect was a 100% live product – but because of this fact, I was able to take this particular Wednesday afternoon show and piece together all the elements which I had as separate tracks in my home studio, then mix it down to the exact end product as it sounded when transmitted. The only difference being that this aircheck is i...

The End: WCTZ ‘The New 96.7 The Coast’ Port Chester/Stamford CT Signs Off | May 20, 2011

Thanks to Contributor Mike Raub. What happens when you get a phone call that says essentially, “Turn it off, now”? This recording, that’s what! This is all that’s left of a station that once occupied the 96.7 frequency licensed to Stamford, CT. The station was sold and as part of the agreement, Cox radio built the new transmitter site before turning it over when the sale consumated. It was assumed that when WCTZ signed off, WKLV would begin immediately and there’s be some sort of ‘format change’, but in the end, WCTZ simply was shut off and there was a bit of a gap between one sign off and the new station’s sign on, which occurred on May 30, 2011. Listen now to the final moments of 96.7 The Coast, “Fairfield County’s Greatest Hits...
