Dale Dorman; Steve Lundy, 610 KFRC San Francisco | December 24, 1967

This is our own custom scope from a recording provided by Matt @ BigAppleAirchecks. The whole thing runs just over four minutes out of 20 before I took out the music. Dale Dorman went from KFRC to Boston’s WRKO where he’d do wakeups. He’d also hold down mornings at WVBF Framingham for a while during their “F-105″ Top 40 era, then on to truly legendary status at WXKS-F...

Steve Bleecker, WJBQ (98 JBQ) Portland, ME | July 1983

Description by Steve Bleecker: Harry Nelson had recently come from KFRC, and I got the call to “get my ass” (his words) to JBQ to do mornings! Almost as soon as I arrived… he left for Fargo, N.D. and JBQ’s FORMER PD, Brian Phoenix was called back to JBQ, to resume as PD! In between Nelson and Phoenix – we all had the best fun! The fun stopped as soon as Phoenix got ba...

Steve Jordan, Natural Neal & Michael O’Connor – 1260 KYA San Francisco | July 13, 1977

If only the East Coast had a Top 40 station like this! Oh… well, besides WABC. We here at Airchexx have put much focus on 610 KFRC as THE dominant station in San Francisco. But, the Bay area had stiff competition for much of the 1970s from crosstown KYA. In 1977, KYA did get close, but never beat KFRC. And it’s too bad, listening to this aircheck, KYA really COOKS! Is it me, or did KYA...

“Exciting” Mike Adams, 68 WRKO Boston | August, 1976

“How ’bout some concert tickets, eh… Caller number NINE...” You’ll love this rather short, but high-energy aircheck of Mike Adams on WRKO during Boston’s Bicentennail celebration in the Summer of 1976! One can’t help but be swept up in the excitement heard on the air on RKO during this time period. For comparison, or perhaps, to illustrate where the entire...

Big Ron O’Brien, Willie B & Tom Murphy; 68 WRKO Boston | November 30, 1978

Six O’Clock on your cruise through the ozone with Big Ron O’Brien… Curator’s Notes: A full, daytime scope of WRKO and a few of its iconic personalities are featured here in late 1978. It opens with Big Ron O’Brien, then Willie B., and finally Tom Murphy. In the case of Tom Murphy, this is only the second aircheck featuring him, and listening as I edited the audio, I c...

A Tribute to John Mack Flanagan

John Mack Flanagan was one of the great broadcasters from the West Coast. Legendary, in the minds of many people, including his peers in the broadcasting industry, his many friends and his fans in the Bay Area. It’s only fitting on the occasion of his passing on Saturday, March 31st, 2018 (Corrected), that we do a little something to pay tribute to a man who meant so much to so many. The fol...

Dale Dorman, WXKS-FM Medford/Boston (Kiss 108 FM) | May 1, 1999

What teens, do you suppose, knew that in 1999, one of their favorite DJs was in his 50s? On the occasion of Uncle Dale’s passing in 2014 at age 71, at the time of this aircheck, he was at the tail end of a 20+ year run as the Afternoon Drive jock at Boston’s “Kiss-108 FM”. Dorman is one of those jocks who made it big in the RKO chain of stations back when personality really...

Howard Hoffman, 77 WABC New York | April 8, 1980

Date of Recording: 04.08.1980 Station: 770 (AM) WABC New York City, New York, USA Format: Top 40 Featured Air Personality: Howard Hoffman (WPIX-FM/WPRO-FM/KUAM/KMEL/KKFR/WQHT/KFRC/KMPC) Comments: 1980 was a year of change for WABC. By the end of the year the music would begin to shift to a more adult sound, but in the early part of 1980, WABC was still a hot Top 40 station, as evidenced by this sh...
