New Contributor Dale Knippers debut aircheck is actually a 5 minute scope of his show on 103.7 WSOC. WSOC has been a Country station for a long time, starting way back in 1971. It was once the home of the late Bill Dollar, and has been re-branded more than a few times over the years. At the time of this recording, WSOC was using the on-air slogans, “Your NASCAR Station” due to it’s airing of weekend NASCAR races, and “Charlotte’s Number One Country”. As of this writing, the station’s slogan is, “Country’s Hottest Hits”.

Dale Knippers writes,

Back in the day when we were live & local..If it sounds like I was havin the time of my life…I WAS. Being the race fan I am..I kept a horsepower hard on a cat couldn’t scratch.

Indeed, Knippers sounds like he really was having fun!
Listen for TimeSaver Traffic with “Officer Stickley” toward the end of this scope.

What follows is all that could be salvaged from two sides of a C-60 cassette featuring music from the first day of the then-new AC format at 1050 CHUM. We don’t feature the music on this website, but endeavor to bring you as much of the radio station’s imaging, the ‘sound between the records’, so to speak.

What happened here is, the person who recorded this obviously was recording for the music, and in a twist of opposites of what we do at airchexx, cut out all the format items in between these songs, except for the two instances you hear in this under one minute recording.

Wikipedia has a page dedicated to 1050 CHUM. The format change to this is explained as follows:

By the mid-1980s, CHUM had lost ground in the Toronto ratings to competitor Top 40 station CFTR and FM-based music stations. On June 6, 1986, at 3 PM, after the playing of Starship’s “We Built This City”, CHUM dropped its Top 40 format for a gold-based adult contemporary format (“Favourites of Yesterday and Today”). The first song after the relaunch was “Beginnings” by Chicago. The change also discontinued the CHUM Chart, which ended the week of June 14, 1986 with Madonna’s “Live to Tell” as the final Number 1 song.

What is not explained, and we’d enjoy hearing from our Canadian friends who know, is whether this format had jocks or was this ‘uninterrupted music’ just for the format day. Please comment below.

The final broadcast of WCCC. What, really can one say? Another one bites the dust, perhaps? Mike Karolyi brought so many people who worked at “The Rock” into the studio that it sounded more like a typical morning show. Voices coming and going. Laughter. Tears. Voices who literally choked up on the mic. To say it was an emotional day on Assylum St. would be an understatement.

The story is, that Marlin Broadcating, a very small company, was and is as of this writing, selling its last radio stations. On August 4, the date of this recording, at 5pm, Educational Media Foundation took over programming, turning 106.9 into a straight satellite feed of Contemporary Christian “K-Love”. It was the end of the line for all those who ever set foot in the legendary Rock & Roll studios of WCCC, and all those who ever wanted to be on the air there.

This is the final part of the final broadcast. Appearing in no particular order:

Former WCCC (and WHCN) Program Director Percozzi
Lena the Tree Hugger
Mary Scalon from WRCH “Lite 100.5″
Slave Boy
And more!

Beware, the final goodbye by Karolyi is quite emotional. You might get caught up in the moment as WCCC goes out with one last hard-Rockin, ass-kicking song, as “The Rock” fades down for all time!

After the pause you hear at the very end of this aircheck, not heard here, the very first WCCC “K-Love” Legal ID and the first Contemporary Christian song begins. If, after hearing this emotional goodbye to a legendary Rock station, you haven’t shed a tear, you may want to hear the actual format change. If so, be sure to visit our sister site, The Format Change Archive. The actual flip can be heard at this link.

From somewhere deep in the bowels of the airchexx archives (which consists of three crates with hundreds of loose cassettes) comes this excellent recording of one Joe Pinner with a DEEP announcer voice playing top 40 hits – if you can call this all standards presentation ‘top 40′. Perhaps it was, considering the time and place. This is the deep south back at a time most people would probably like to forget about, when segregation was alive and well. There’s even a commercial for an all-white dance! Fortunately, that is but only one instance, a quick :30 second commercial in this 30 minute Thanksgiving day broadcast which includes news, weather and those overly orchestrated jingles from the time period.

For you jingle freaks- From what company and package are the jingle sings in this aircheck? We’re guessing either CRC or Heller.

We can’t even find an old station logo. But for you wondering, yes this IS the former AM side to the current CHR 104.7 WNOK. Now you know its roots, this station has been top 40, like… forever.

Part 3 picks up where our last segment left off. Its the end of a commercial break, and Mike Karolyi habitually goes into a song (that’s what you get for leaving the system in ‘auto’) – Rush’s “Tom Sawyer”, but that doesn’t last, a few seconds in, he dumps the song and says he didn’t mean to play it.

This hour is FULL of guests! Not much editing done here, so kick back, and notice how often the new owners of 102.9 DRC plug the ‘new’, tweaked format across town. Tweaked, so as to make the most of WCCC’s demise…

It was the end of the line for all those who ever set foot in the legendary Rock & Roll studios of WCCC, and all those who ever wanted to be on the air there.

Part 2 of this amazing broadcast starts out with Karolyi interviewing his boss, Vice President and General Manager Boyd Arnold. Arnold gives his recollections of his years at The Rock which began in 1998. Before that, he ran crosstown former format competitor 105.9 WHCN. Following Arnold, Brent, from the band Shinedown calls in. Brent is on for about 15 minutes, thanking the radio station for giving the band vital recognition and airplay. He says that unlike the people at CCC, he’s not sad. He’s angry and says so in so many words.

The music played in between interviews is all Alternative/Grunge fare, as Mike Karolyi breaks from the Classic Rock format that only took hold the previous Autumn. Each song seems to be greeted with thunderous applause – apparently, the Classic Rock format was not a hit with the airstaff, nor with the audience. WCCCs ratings dropped to a pitiful 3 share – one reason why the station went to EMF, apparently. Note: All the music heard in this program, and all commercials have been taken out. Except for a few airings of the spot for the NEW 102.9 DRC (WDRC-FM), which was sold and the airstaff let go only a week earlier, changing formats to 70s/80s/90s Classic Hits.

So, it was a tough couple of weeks for Hartford radio, both listeners and radio people.
Here’s a few important, relevant links to news articles about the changes.

Mike Karolyi hosts the final-ever broadcast of Rock 106.9 WCCC. A lot of guests make up this final show, and Karolyi wasted no time whatsoever in bringing out the heavyweights. Howard Stern is the first guest on right at 1pm as this gets rolling. Howard and Mike talk for about 10 minutes about his time at the station, and gives his thoughts on the radio industry. For those listeners who might not have known what was coming up at 5pm other than ‘changes’, Stern lets the cat out of the bag.

There is a lot more to this first hour so you really have to listen.

Parts 2-5 are still to come so check back often!

For those listeners who might not have known what was coming up at 5pm other than 'changes', Stern lets the cat out of the bag.There is a lot more to this first hour so you really have to listen.Parts 2-5 are still to come so check back often!

A correction as to the contributor of this aircheck is in order. This was sent in by longtime Contributor Jeffrey James. Not Rich Brother Robbin, as previously stated. Sorry for the mixup!

I can not tell you much about this radio station, other than sometime earlier this year it flipped to CHR as “The Gorilla”.

Kelly Tyler is the mid-day host, and sounds live, as opposed to voice tracked. The last few minutes of this 9 minute scope features the All-Request Lunch, they call it the Noontime Feeding Frenzy. Thats original!

Recorded in 1999, we join the last few minutes of Nina Blackwood’s Absolutely 80s show. Its one of those syndicated things that plays on weekends. Note, the ‘nbgradio.com’ web address given out by Blackwood is not in use – it leads to buydomains.com. At 10am (in this aircheck), John Jacobs takes over.

WWVV markets itself here as “The New Wave” and “Adventure Radio”. The station is put together with sweepers which lead the listener to think this is a CHR station, but in reality it is the then-new “Modern AC” format which features a lot of Alternative songs which have crossed into the Billboard pop charts. It would not surprise me if I researched ownership to find out it was owned by Entercom (they took the country station I worked at in 2000 Modern AC).

The audio is excellent, very little processing was done to restore this from the source cassette, except to scope out the music to comply with RIAA rules.

Today, 106.9 is Country WUBB, “Bob-FM”, and still serves the greater Savannah GA area. Click the logo below to go to the station’s official website.

I wish I could tell you who the jock is on this aircheck, but in the 45 minutes of the original recording, he never says his name once. No jock imaging is heard… nothing! But its obvious from this 6-plus minute scope that 95-SX is all about the music and their audience.

We join the station at about 9:40pm. Its amazing. 1998 seems like just yesterday, and all the music (there is no music just a bit on the front and tail ends) seems as fresh as it was then. In 1998, the CHR format was still a good mix of Dance, Hip Hop, Pop and Rock, although it didn’t seem so back then, compared to earlier years.

The Top 5 at 10 is the five most requested songs of the day. At the end, listeners have a chance to call in and name all the artists and songs in order in 9 seconds for a chance to win. This particular night, the prize is tickets to the Carolina Power Jam!

As I remember it from my time living in the Charleston area (the Lowcountry, as they call it), radio was very good, even recovering as they were when I arrived from Hurricane Hugo (1989). There used to be a CHR station called Q107, which was off the air for a long time after the hurricane devastated the area. They returned for one week, then flipped to Country as Bubba 107.5. Bubba. Go figure! Bubba’s gone today, and the dial is much changed even since this recording.

Hopefully, someone remembers the jock and can tell us who he is.
