The Big Ron O’Brien Files, Part 3: 102.7 KIIS-FM, KIIS 1150 AM Los Angeles | October 7, 1986

Courtesy of Big Apple Airchecks, yet another original Ron O’Brien recording from the generocity of his estate. This is a pretty good recording, with just a bit of FM static. Otherwise, the dynamic range is excellent and Big Ron sounds right at home at “The New Kiss FM & AM”. Apparently, KIIS-FM was in the midst of a bit of a re-tooling of the overall sound, de-emphasizing Ro...

The Big Ron O’Brien Files, Part 2: Giant 1130 WCAR Detroit | March 16, 1972

That’s Neil Young, he’s got a Heart of Gold. I would settle for an aorta of silver… The Big Ron O’Brien Files will eventually end up on its own page, due to the sheer number of airchecks available from the estate. Here’s Part Two of the collaboration between Big Apple Airchecks and us featuring the very best of one of America’s legendary radio dj’s! This i...

Mike Demambro, 105.7 WVBF Framingham/Boston | December 31, 1980

…don’t bring any kind of fire water into the city! Salvaged from my personal collection, here’s Mike Demambro on a somewhat subdued WVBF toward the end of the ‘F-105’ era. It’s New Year’s Eve, and WVBF was in the waning days of Top 40 before going what would be VERY soft AC within a year. Still, listen for all the hits as a Boston legend rang in 1981! Most...

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...

68 WRKO “Blooper Tape, circa 1968-73

For you radio people, how many of you remember sitting down at a staff meeting or a holiday party at some restaurant, and the GM or PD pulled out this tape of bloopers, things nobody was EVER supposed to hear? How many of you can relate to someone producing the master production reel with 500 pieces of splice tape on it and a recording or two of one of the airstaff trying to get a production piece...

“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...

New England Radio Composite | April 1980

Curator’s Notes: This composite is a collection of various airchecks of stations in the 6 state New England region.  One of the real joys for a radio listener up there is, There are a lot of medium market stations, all within earshot of the major cities of Boston, Hartford,  Providence, and, while not technically in New England, Albany NY. If you liked radio in the Northeast, or lived anywhe...

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...

New England Composite, October-November 1978

Original Comments: Close your eyes and imagine yourself in Boston. The year is 1978. You start tuning around the radio dial. You start on the AM band, because that’s where your favorite station has been for many years. You stop for a moment at 680. WRKO is still going strong. They call themselves “New England’s Album Station” at this point in time – a slogan that will...

Sample: 107.9 WXKS-FM Medford | March 10, 2003

Please scroll down below this post for an important message “Kiss-108 plays ALL of today’s Hit Music Curator’s Notes: I’ll keep this brief since it would take longer to read than listen. Considering that the jock doesn’t mention his name, and I recorded this right after the WAAF aircheck, I think this is Matt Seigal from his “Matty in the Morning” show. Th...
