Bill Berlin, 1240 WKDA Nashville | December 27, 1968

Right off the reel, here’s a brand new exhibit from Karl Phillips. WKDA has occupied three AM frequencies, that we know of, since 1968. 1240, as in this aircheck, more recently as a Spanish station on 1430, and currently on 1200 (later info courtesy FYBUSH.COM) after a move there in 2002. This aircheck is unique for a number of reasons. First, this really is typical of most of the top 40 sta...

Composite, 1000 AM WCFL “Big 10” Chicago | December 22, 1970

Nine oh two at the Voice of Labor, this is Robert E. Lee for Clark Webber… Curator’s Notes: This aircheck came to us somewhat unscoped. It’s a somewhat strange aircheck, in that the music is not what I’d consider true Top 40 fare, but considering this was three days before Christmas, perhaps WCFL, as some other stations ESPECIALLY back in 1970, toned it down for the holiday...

Airchexx Presents: The WLS Big 89 Rewind 2007B – Fred Winston

Fred Winston doesn’t skip a beat and he sounds like he just picked up where he left off during the MusicRadio years at WLS! Following Larry Lujack and Tommy Edwards, Winston is just as funny as the first time! He weaves all the original WLS show elements together masterfully… but really, this is just Fred Winston being himself! You won’t be disappointed! Big thanks to WLS PD Kipp...

Airchexx Presents: WLS Big 89 Rewind 2007A – Larry Lujack & Tommy Edwards

All files associated with the Big 89 Rewind were donated by former Mgr Kipper McGee, whose idea it was to do a reunion of the old 1970s airstaff in the first place! As Kipper and I exchanged emails regarding this event, he mentioned possibly asking other WLS personalities who were there if they would like to write a few words about their experience. As of this writing, we haven’t heard from any of...

“Soaking up the coffee like a sponge…     *Aircheck donated by Bill Bailey’s widow, Sandy Bailey* Personal note In researching Mr. Bailey’s total radio career and attempting to discover why he passed, I noticed that Bill Bailey, of WLHT, WDRQ, WWDJ and WLS has ONE mention on mlive.com, and it took 5 pages of google searching to find something that resembled an obi...

Lets see what mischief we can find to get you into… Curator’s Notes: First off, I hope you enjoy the new format.  Less clutter, more airchexx!!  Just the way we like em. Second, who doesn’t think Art Roberts possesses the voice of GOD on this aircheck?  Without a doubt, Art sounds perfect for this NBC O%O Adult Contemporary station.  You gotta go WAY back now, to 1979.  Was it re...
