Curator’s Notes:

It broke my heart to have to scope this down. This is an original, over the air recording made by Bob Gilmore. It wasn’t a special recording – Bob has literally thousands of cassette and reel to reel tapes in his studio that he recorded over the years – no, this was just another made and it happened to be using his AM Stereo receiver. (Don’t ask me what model, I forgot since he told me when he gave me this file he burned to CD for me).

This features Dan Martin as the weekend jock on duty. There’s a full locally produced newscast in here and 8 minutes of programming in AM Stereo that sound better than half the FM airchecks we have on exhibit here. Literally. This is totally worth your listening time!

  1. Great post! I worked with Dan during my tenure at WELI in the mid-80s. I’d love to hear more ‘ELI airchecks from those days(especially ones where I’m doing the news!).


    • It just so happens I have another one. Bob burned a CD for me with a bunch of really good airchecks that he recorded. Some of his tapes are digitized but most aren’t. I’m about to post what I consider the crown jewel of what he burned for me… a great aircheck of 92 PRO-FM From 1980! Holy cow batman..
