Oops! Here’s another morning maniac almost lost to time. Almost! This is Bob McLaine, known for many years in both Philly and Memphis, as ol’ Bob was a TV personality and the morning guy at WOTO “Oldies 95.7″ before it was blown up by Clear Channel back a few years ago.
And… hey Bob! I met Bob when he did a short stint at WGKX before moving out of the Memphis market a few years ago. Yep. Crazy Bob! Crazy but damn good!
This is a great aircheck. First, listen to ‘Wibbage” – not calling themselves that anymore, now at this point in time, its the NEW WIBG. New? We don’t hear anything new about it, this is classic WIBG with reverb and some pretty hot music for the day, and Crazy Bob is the morning man. Just listen to the number of drops McLaine throws in over just about everything!
Interestingly enough, this was recorded only a few months before dropping the WIBG call letters in favor of WZZD. “Wizzard 100” was also a Top 40 format, but a failure, as was the short lived Disco format afterwards.
After many years as a Religious outlet, the station flipped to Conservative talk as WNTP, in 2004. A format which continues to this day.
