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...

Maudner in the Morning; 930 CJYQ St. Johns, Newfoundland | September, 1979

The reason that cow doesn’t have any horns is because it’s a horse! 930 CJYQ at this point in time has been around for about a year. It had been purchased by Stirling. The station had an Adult Contemporary feel to it but was definitely a community (In this case, being the flagship of the “Q” Network) oriented station. In fact, CJYQ positioned themselves for a time as “...

KRI loses its Z– The Chucker and Jack Elliot on KRIZ Phoenix | September, 1977

What are we supposed to do with your paycheck while you’re gone? – Give it away!! From deep in the archives of Contributor Daniel Coulombe comes this excellent quality recording of KRIZ in the Fall of 1977. This starts out with “Chucker” as the jock and a voice (we don’t know who) walks in and proceeds to announce that he (Zee) is going on vacation. Thus comes the con...

Jay Thomas, 98.7 WXLO New York | September, 1977

…I was hoping you might be able to get me in touch with John Gambling There are many things unique to this aircheck. First, this is from an early edition of Tom Konard’s Aircheck Factory tapes. This was from a monthly edition called “Around The Dial”. The “Aircheck Factory” was, likely, the first professional aircheck service. They received recordings primarily ...

Lan Roberts & Jimmy Stewart, 1300 KOL Seattle | January 22, 1971

The sounds of Middle-Of-The-Road radio are heard on this recording. Yes, 1300 KOL was a Top 40 station and for a while did compete with KJR “Channel 95”. But surely not the same way. The show host is Lan Roberts but the real star attraction here is famous actor Jimmy Stewart! I don’t know the backstory as to how or why Stewart was on this show, but this is authentic, real radio, ...

Dan Taylor; Weekend Time Machine, 66 WNBC New York | September 12, 1987

Frank Davis sent us a lot of WNBC Time Machine recordings. Enough so that we might end up with the world’s largest collection of WNBC’s Weekend Time Machine! As a side note, a basic google search brings up dozens of links to places selling, of all things, “Time Machine” airchecks on CD, youtube re-mixes of our WNBC content and more.  The web, being what it is, there’s...

Bud Ballou, WKBW 1520 Buffalo | 1967

Another Frank Davis presentation… Bud Ballou would become legendary in Boston, at 1510 WMEX, then Fairbanks Communication’s WVBF in suburban Framingham. But before his stint at 105.7, Ballou was heard all up and down the Eastern Seaboard on >WKBW AM 1520 Buffalo. KB itself is legendary, with a signal that blankets the eastern half of the United States and Canada, from the Maritimes ...

Bob Stewart, Capital Gold 1548 AM London | January 21, 1996

Bob Stewart (left) and friends, legends of U.K. Broadcasting Courtesy of Contributor Russ Horton, we have a unique recording of a DJ whose voice sounds quite similar to “The Duke of Louisville”. It’s not him, of course, but Bob Stewart definitely has a great set of pipes! Listening to Capital Gold, one can understand why the Oldies of the 1960s tend to bring everyone together. Mu...

Top 40 Parody: 88.1 WTBS Cambridge

Top 40 Parody from then 88.1 WTBS (now WMBR) Cambridge. From Contributor Steven Green comes another gem of a recording! Admittedly, the audio quality from this cassette dub from the original reel isn’t the best, however, it is quite amusing listening to these student broadcasters try to imitate Top 40 radio from that era. This sounds like 1966, and the only station in Boston which sounded re...

Bob Todd, The Big 8 CKLW Windsor (Detroit) | 1967

Bob Todd on “The Big 8” – RKO General’s monster Canadian radio station! It’s been said that Bill Drake’s ‘More Music” format arrived at CKLW in 1966. Here’s the Big 8 in all it’s Drake goodness with the formatics intact. Listen to this and imagine a Summer afternoon somewhere in Ontario or Michigan/Northern Indiana/Northwest Ohio… t...
