Big Apple Airchecks Matt Seinberg New York TradersHow many people knew there was something up in central Maine other than Elk, Moose and Deer? All kidding aside, this is the first aircheck we have of the Brunswick market, and it’s true classic Top 40 all the way!

Big Apple Airchecks submitted this long scope of Willie Mitchell and John McKay that appears to have been recorded over a two day period, since Willie Mitchell appears for a second session after McKay.

The station first went on the air in 1971 with the call letters WJTO. As WIGY, the station was Top 40 and remained until they went Classic Rock in 1991 with the call letters WKRH.

Listening to this, one might make the comparison to Boston’s WRKO at about the same time period. The jock approach sounds quite similar, although the jingles used here are JAM resings of one of the WLS Chicago packages. If you’re a fan of late-70s Top 40 radio, this one will certainly not disappoint!
