Jack Scott, The Time Machine; 66 WNBC New York | September 6, 1987 7:30-8:30 PM

It’s more Time Machine more often! Here’s another segment of the Top 66 of the 1960s countdown with Jack Scott. This one sounds a little slow (which means the source tape was recorded a little bit faster than normal). So, yes, Jack […]

Larry Scott; The Time Machine, 66 WNBC New York | September 6, 1987 6:30 – 7:30 PM

Larry Scott’s got the perfect radio ‘voice’, don’t you think? Every Time Machine program, WNBC seems to be airing a new, different PAMS jingle. Some are used frequently, such as the Chime jingle and the “Oh, the Weather’s On…” Jingle. Others seem […]

Jim Jeffrey & Rick Reinhardt, WAVE 970 Louisville | December 21, 1977 6pm – 12am

Recorded just before Christmas 1977, WAVE 970 is here an Adult Contemporary station that today no longer exists. There’s lots of news – NBC Network and local news by Mary McCarthy filling in for Tyler Cox and a later part of news […]

Suitcase Simpson, WTAE “96 Kicks” Pittsburgh | January 31, 1977

This aircheck is somewhat confusing. The call letters are used at the top of the hour legal ID only. The station sometimes calls itself 96 KX, and other times 96 Kicks. And as if listeners weren’t confused enough, there’s a sweeper midway […]

Joe Martelle, Rock & Roll Reunion, 98.5 WROR Boston Pt. 2 | March 17, 1985

Posting out of order, here’s part two of a two part aircheck of Joe Martelle’s “Saturday Night at the Oldies”, which ran for many years on the old 98.5 WROR. This event was actually an all-weekend affair, with former RKO jocks and […]

Sample: 103.3 KCRS “Kiss-FM”, Midland/Odessa TX | January 27, 2002

Recorded the same day as an aircheck of 100.7 KHYS, another Clear Channel “Kiss-FM” branded CHR from Abilene, TX, we stay in the Lone Star State for this, slightly longer ‘check of KCRS. The difference between these two stations primarilly is that […]

100.7 KHYS “Kiss-FM” Abilene TX | January 27, 2002

Apparently recorded in the wee hours of a Sunday morning, Kiss-FM is jockless for the first few minutes of this scope. The final breaks feature Kid Kelly’s syndicated “Backtracks USA” 80s flashback show. KHYS here is typical of Clear Channel Communications’ Kiss-branded […]

Dan Ingram, MusicRadio 77 WABC New York | April 10, 1979

From Contributor Frank Davis comes this unique ‘almost disco’ recording of MusicRadio 77 from April 10, 1979. Legend has it that WABC went Disco for one week. Well, first off, we’re not entirely sure of which week in ’79 that was, or […]

Robert Craig Savage, 1460 WAXC Rochester | 1972

Courtesy of Contributor Steve Bleecker… Robert Craig Savage has to be the quintessential AM Top 40 jock. He personifies everything that was Top 40 Radio in the early to mid 1970s. While his personality approach to the format on WAXC might be […]
