1540 WPTR / Albany/Troy NY

QuickChexx: Mark Allen, 1540 WPTR Albany | June, 1968

1540 Albany WPTR WDCD

Here’s an early donation from the fabulous Robyn Watts!

The recording featured on this tape has seen better times, with a bit of white noise (hiss) present. The night this was recorded, WPTR was subject to fading and a bit of interference from another station at times in the background. Any guesses as to what station might be lurking underneath WPTR?

For only a two minute aircheck, we’re treated to some good WPTR jingles, a bit of Mark Allen and the fast pace of this great Top 40 radio station! There are certainly not enough recordings out there of the mighty 1540, in fact, this is the First to grace our website!

  1. Perhaps a Canadian station under PTR.

  2. went to chicago after wptr and changed his name to bob dearborn and became a wcfl legend.

  3. My guess is that the station interfering is KXEL, the 50,000 powerhouse in Waterloo, Iowa.
