Courtesy of Big Apple Airchecks, Here’s a more recent aircheck of the late Chuck Collier (May 6, 1947—September 22, 2011) than some others available on this site. Chuck is heard very much in his element here on Country 99-5 WGAR during PM drive. While Collier began his career as a Top 40 Deejay, for more than 40 years he was known as one of America’s leading Country broadcasters, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in March, 2009.
This aircheck is a bit disappointing, but only because we don’t hear much of Chuck. This is somewhat typical of radio today, lots of music and sweepers and only one or two jock talk breaks. That’s unfortunate because Chuck Collier sounds wonderful with that unique Ohio accent. Even with only a few breaks, Collier’s personality comes through.

Consistently great on-air for 40 years! ‘Atta Boy’ Chuck Collier. Blessings, Big Ed Brady.
