Note: This ‘check is of Ron O’Brien, although this is obviously not *BIG* Ron O’Brien from WCFL & WOGL. Interesting name for this jock to take…

WRNC Raleigh, NC. Mike Grohman left 1340 WGNI to do Mid-Days at WRNC in 1974. WRNC was of course up against the giant WKIX. KIX had more power and was a legend by that time. Here is a RARE aircheck from the ’74 Top 40 Radio Battle in Raleigh. Mike passed away a few years ago, after leaving radio and moving home to work for Corning Fiber Optics. He is missed!

  1. I’m pretty sure this aircheck is from summer 1973. I worked part-time at WRNC then, and I remember Ron doing midday at that time. I checked the “current” songs in the aircheck, and it seems they charted on Billboard around May-June 1973.


  2. WRNC was the new name of WRAL AM 1240. RNC was owned by two brothers (Stevenson, I think) from Fuquay. What ever happened to them and the station?
