Composite: 1300 WAVZ New Haven | July, 1974

There’s very little WE can say that conveys the excitement generated by 13 Waves during it’s heyday of the mid-late 1970s. Some of the best and brightest broadcasters in Southern New England graced the air on WAVZ – and a few of them have posted comments about this recording below.

If you read the comments before listening, do yourself a favor now, and see why this AM station OWNED the New Haven market, at a time when AM stations were already in steep decline as music stations. Oh, if this had been put on the sister FM station, we’d be listening to 101 Waves instead of KC 101… but would that have been such a bad thing? We can only dream, I suppose.

This recording is a bit choppy. It came to us that way from the skimmer. Featured on this composite: Mike Dean, Bill Rock, Ron Foster, Brian Phoenix, more…

This aircheck was one of the original recordings sent in by longitme contributor Andy Bologovski. In our last site upgrade that credit somehow fell by the wayside. Our humble apologies. Andy has his own page (which I need to update) here on airchexx which you can access by clicking HERE.

Also, sample this WAVZ aircheck from 1973…

And, recording of John E Walker on 13 WAVZ from December ’75!
