News with Steve Tefft, 960 WELI New Haven | March 30, 1988

960 New Haven WELI Glenn Beck Steve Tefft Rush Limbaugh

Contributor Steve Tefft sent one in featuring himself doing a newscast in 1988. Yes, apparently WELI did play music sometime in its past. Most AM stations did at one point or another. 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.

    When I worked at WELI (1984-’89) the station called itself “Total Radio”–news and traffic at :00 and :30, sports at :15 and :45, with music (Top 40) in-between. We were one of the first AM stations to go AM-stereo, an experiment that failed due to lack of an industry standard. Our weekday jocks were Ron Rohmer (5:30-10AM), Jay McCormick (10-2) and Dan Martin (2-6). At night it was talk with Jerry Dunklee (6-9) and Chris Plass (9-12). Dunklee and Plass were supplanted by Art Barrett (RIP) and Steve Kalb. In the mid-90s, ‘ELI went all talk. Glenn Beck passed through there for a while.
