Don K. Reed and the Doo Wop Shop; 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | November 27, 1994

CBS-FM and that’s the sound of, yes, you know who. The Dells… Don K. Reed and the Doo Wop Shop is open for business one more time, just after Thanksgiving on New York’s Oldies Station. This is another in the series of Doo Wop Shop airchecks we received from Contributor Steven Green, who recorded these tapes while in New York.  Thank you, Steven! It’s remarkable how laid-bac...

Don K. Reed’s Doo Wop Shop Christmas Special, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | December 24, 1994

Don K. Reed features two Christmas oriented Do-Wop albums this particular night, and while it’s not all Christmas music, there’s plenty peppered in on this Christmas Eve, 1994. This recording came by way of a mislabeled cassette. The recording, we know was from the Saturday night Do Wop Shop prior to Christmas day, which, in 1994, was Saturday, December 24th. How lucky to have this sho...

Don K Reed and The Do-Wop Shop, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | October 23, 1994

We’ll let ya in anytime seven to midnight… In the days before Jack-FM, CBS-FM had a number of great Oldies personalities and specialty shows. 1994 was perhaps the middle of the greatest era for this Oldies outlet (thought so by many whom I’ve talked to over the years), and the personalities who called this station home are fondly remembered even today! One such specialty program ...

Memorial Day Remembrances – WABC Rewound 2007 | Hour 2

For eight years, from 1999 to 2007, NewsTalk 77 WABC New York took one day out of the year to remember it’s historic music radio format. It was a treat for listeners, and while pre-produced by then Production Director Johnny Donovan (himself a jock during the MusicRadio 77 years), it also gave the talk show hosts the Memorial Day holiday off. Once again, we here at Airchexx would like to pre...

Jimmy Rabbitt, KROQ AM/FM Pasadena CA | November, 1976

Date of Recording: 11.xx.1976 Exact Date Unknown Station: 106.7 FM / 1500 AM KROQ Pasadena, California, USA Format: Hit-Based AOR Featured Air Personality: Jimmy Rabbitt Contributor: Frank Davis Comments: This is a very unique aircheck in the sense that it probably illustrates what Freeform Progressive Rock radio really sounded like at it’s apex in the mid 1970s. Now, we’re not sure if...

The “Do-Wop Shop” with Don K. Reed, WCBS-FM 101.1 New York | January 29, 1978

From a cold Winter Sunday night, “Weekend 101” and the Do-Wop Shop featuring longtime host Don K. Reed. There’s not much featured on this aircheck to indicate that it was recorded in 1978, other than those who remember those old jingles who might have been able to round down the general late-70s era. No commercial breaks, but Reed does do a couple of weather reports (this was rig...

Ed Williams, WCBS-FM New York | July 10, 1972

Courtesy of Contributor Henry Nelson (WHRK, WMC-FM), here’s one of the earliest incarnations that we can find of Oldies 101 WCBS-FM! Were it not for Bill Gilliam giving the date at the start of the 10pm newscast, we’d have guessed this aircheck to be from 1971 or so. Modern day programmers would cringe at Ed Williams’ delivery. Talking over the ends of songs, in most breaks, not ...

A Tribute to B. Mitchell Reed: 95.5 KLOS Los Angeles | March 19, 1983

Shortly after the death of B. Mitchell Reed, KLOS’ Gail Murphy hosted a live tribute to the legendary deejay, featuring recorded interviews and a couple of very short samples of his earlier work. Apparently, there were not many original recordings of early Top 40 radio around back then (imagine if Airchexx had been online in ’83!), or perhaps, being that KLOS was an Album Rock station,...

Lee Douglas with Elton John aka “EJ the DJ”, WXLO 99X New York | Summer 1975

Sir Elton John apparently was an accomplished DJ among his other talents! At least, he was after this raunchy appearance on the Mighty X! Its the Summer of 1975. “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart” and “Philadelphia Freedom” were a year away from becoming Elton John’s mega-hits. But with a slew of rock classics under his belt, the pianist was at the first pinnacl...

The Radio Greats Reunion, 107.1 WWZY “The Breeze” Monmouth NJ Part 2: Bob Shannon | July 2007

(Updated 6/8/14)While this is about WWZY “The Breeze”, we’re going to confuse you a bit in the description to provide you with a bit more background info.
