While 93 KHJ was desperately trying to hold on as a Top 40 stations, other AM stations sounded incredible. Not included on this composite – which is really mostly KMPC – is the other competitor that for a short while gave everyone a run for their money, KTNQ Ten-Q.

You’ll hear two breaks from Tim Kelly on the “Super 64″, and the rest is all personality driven Geoff Edwards on KMPC. This is mid-day, just before lunchtime and listen to how sold out KMPC is! Also listen to how Edwards weaves the Mickey Mouse contest in and out of records, then airs ALL the contestants who call till the one gives the right answer!

No, radio isn’t done this way anymore, that requires a personality who can communicate, and a live body on the air to do it. Expensive for the station bean counters? Sure. But, as I said, KMPC was absolutely sold out, you couldn’t fit more commercials in an hour if you wanted to. And yet the show flows smoothly and the listener doesn’t get bored.

Corporate managers, take note. I’m done preaching. Just listen.

Just making a guess here, this was recorded at night. Lots of fading and at times the skywave signal cancels out the ground wave, but otherwise its a decent, albeit cleaned up recording that came in on cassette.

Best guess at the jocks name is Larry Tremaine. Difficult to read the handwriting that was printed on the tape, but he does announce his name early on. Tremaine says he is in for Huggy Boy. Well, that would be referring to the much beloved Dick Hugg, whom we have featured doing his first show for KRTH K-Earth 101 on this site. Scoping this aircheck down proved to be pointless. The jock talks all thoughout the songs, the quality is poor enough that its doubtful anyone’s going to complain. The few commercials aired were also left in, perhaps someone remembers some of these XERB promotions.

Here’s a slice of radio history few heard or remember. Until now.

Mr. Lee has a personalized jingle to open this show, which on this night, he says is a tradition on the night of the Super Bowl(TM)! Lots of 1950s Do-Wop songs, most of which, the host hopes you’ve long forgotten. I know I have!

Back when this was recorded, WQSR was a powerhouse, with high ratings, a great morning show (Rouse and Company), and listeners all over Anne Arundel County. Who knows, your webmaster might have been listening that night, as I was working out of Ft. McHenry, ordering Naval Reservists around like they were mine to order! (Just kidding – ask former Capt. Livingstone, who was my fmr C.O.). WQSR was a station at the time, which played the 60s and 70s during the week, but all the specialty shows revolved around 1950s music. This show is typical of what you’d hear every weekend.

Contributor Steve Tefft added this scratchy recording of the late Sportscaster Pete Franklin at the place that made him famous. Steve writes:

…{this} is from January 26th, 1976. The Cleveland Crusaders were the city’s World Hockey Association team. Its general manager, Jack Vivian, had just (that day) cut Gerry Cheevers, the team’s goalie and only real box office draw(Cheevers played for the Boston Bruins before jumping leagues). Franklin lays into Vivian on this check.

Do what you can to clean the airchecks up; not sure what you can do to remove static. Remember, I recorded this at night in southern Connecticut, hundreds of miles away.

Contributor Glen Rappolt gives us a great sample of the great “Wacky 102″, a Top 40 station that most people in Southern New England over 45 remember very well. The station boasted a fun airstaff which included Jim “The Big Tuna” Kaye, Ken Gilbert, our contributor Glen “FM” Stevens, WRKO Boston star Mike Addams and more! This station truly was under-rated, as it seemed that Wacky 102 was everywhere! Broadcasting at nearly all the local events, Riverside Park, auto racing and more!

Wacky played ALL the hit songs, all the Rock, R&B, Disco, Country Crossovers and bubblegum Pop. It all came to an end in August, 1981. We have the aircheck of the final Top 40 show featuring Jim Kaye right here.

Here’s the ‘old’ 80s version of Hot Country “Weazel 103.5″ WEZL. The Weazel was a name used up until about 1991 or so, when Charlie Bird Lindsay, Larry Farina and a few others left WEZL and became part of a group that purchased the old Q-107. They were able to do that because Q-107 was never able to recover financially from the damage sustained in Hurricane Hugo two years earlier. That station became Country “Bubba 107.5 WBUB”, and while the name is different, is still Country to this day.

I’m particularly intriqued by how ‘local’, or, ‘regional’ the station sounds. Yes, its a BIG Country station, with huge ratings at the time, but note the deep Carolina southern drawl. Radio stations in the south weren’t afraid to talk as the locals talked, especially on the Country stations, although it seems as if the Pop and Rock stations in this market had jocks who tried for that supposedly neutral ‘midwestern’ accent. All the jocks on WEZL had the drawl.

There is a lot of music on this morning show. Lindsay runs a contest, airs the listener’s call.. very nice. There’s a couple of traffic reports you’ll like if you used to live there and moved… since you’ll hear many Charleston area landmarks and bridges.

This is just one for our audio time capsule.

Charleston, as with so many markets these days, has had a lot of format and frequency changes since the new millenium took hold. The 96.1 frequency is certainly no exception. At one point, WAVF, known as “96 Wave-FM”, was a very popular Mainstream, then Alternative, Rock station. Their yearly “Battle of the Bands” attracted numerous local artists and countless shows in the Lowcountry.

Back to June, 1988 and this recording of the Wakeup Crew featuring Atom Taler. 96-WAVE was ahead of the technology curve, with listeners phoning in traffic reports on their gigantic mobile phones via the Cellular 1 network. Lots of traffic gets reported, too, around places like the Navy base, Goose Creek, the Old Cooper River Bridge… you get the picture. Music on this tape was all mainstream 70s/80s fare, including some Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker and more. No alternative is found here.

First, the only description of WSNG online (aside from its current description under the Talk of Connecticut radio network established by Buckley Broadcasting), from Wiki… says WSNG was a ‘Full Service’ station. Listening to this, one has to wonder, since WSNG was obviously playing all the hit songs at this point in time, was it close to Top 40? Sure sounds like it. The quality of this is amazing, as well. We did no processing whatsoever to this for presentation. And that’s rare!

But few in modern times can recall WELI as a music station. You’ll hear parts of two songs on either end of this newscast, recorded during the WELI Morning Show. There’s no audio from the show portion, just the newscast. But you will hear the Top of Hour ID heard at the time this station was recorded.

Today, WELI is owned by iHeartMedia and airs a conservative NewsTalk format featuring Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and others.

The sounds of Middle-Of-The-Road radio are heard on this recording. Yes, 1300 KOL was a Top 40 station and for a while did compete with KJR “Channel 95″. But surely not the same way. Listen to the style of these two funny men, Lan Roberts and Jimmy Stalwart. One gets the impression they would have made for a great team, out at a night club or a restaurant.

Not too many records get played in this long scope, but they didnt need to be. The program is very entertaining on its own. What was played, was very middle of the road stuff, instrumentals… oh, then we get to hear “Watching Scotty Grow”. Okay, there are a few stiffs. But you get the picture. Hard to believe we listened to THIS music in 1971, but after the 1960s, things were bound to slow down.

KOL would go Country by the middle of the 1970s. Today, the station is KKOL since FCC rules do not permit re issues of old three letter call letters. Either they stay in use or they get lost. Which is too bad.
