Nine oh two at the Voice of Labor, this is Robert E. Lee for Clark Webber…

Curator’s Notes:

This aircheck came to us somewhat unscoped. It’s a somewhat strange aircheck, in that the music is not what I’d consider true Top 40 fare, but considering this was three days before Christmas, perhaps WCFL, as some other stations ESPECIALLY back in 1970, toned it down for the holiday season. Compare with similar airchecks from stations like WLS and try to compare.

This aircheck is living proof that radio stations indeed, DID, actually play David Cassidy records!

  1. Clark Weber was as smooth as they come. Refreshing to hear his pure talent.

  2. this was the underdog in the 3rd largest market in north America they cut the WLS audience in half almost overnight…some say a labor dispute between ABC and the Chicago federation of labor…

  3. Date on this aircheck should be Dec. 22 1971
