A word about support:
Each month, we ask for donations to support our online museum. It’s an ongoing request, because only a few ever donate, despite an audience in the thousands every day. Won’t you please help out and chip in? It goes to a worthy cause, helping to keep these classic radio recordings online and free to the user. Airchexx is a user-supported but free historical and educational website that also provides thousands of hours of listening enjoyment every day. You can make a voluntary, monthly contribution below, or look in the sidebar to the right for a link to make a one-time donation to help us defray costs. Thank you
One of the things I find interesting is finding out what radio personalities also branch out into. Art Vuolo’s career is quite interesting. He currently owns Vuolo Video, a website (blog) that celebrates the best of recorded radio and Michigan sports. Well, that’s an interesting combination. You really should visit his site. You’ll find it quite interesting!
Here’s an aircheck of a very YOUNG Art Vuolo playing around on WOIA in Michigan. Included is, an unbelievable newscast delivered by John Landecker. The voice doesn’t even resemble “Records” Landecker… but, could it be this is one in the same person? Listen for yourself and see if this is the legendary WLS night jock or not!
A note about the logo: 102.9 Ann Arbor today is W4 Country.

Is this an aircheck or a Boogie Check?
Yes, that’s John Records Landecker of WLS fame.
Well! I didn’t know that “Radio’s Best Friend” was ever on the air as a jock. This is quite a revelation. By the way, WOIA (102.9 FM) is today’s WWWW “W4 Country.” If I’m not mistaken, Landecker also worked in Michigan at WILS in Lansing and WERX in Grand Rapids.
John Landecker also worked from about May, 1966 to about September, 1966 at WTRX Flint, as “Dow Jones”.
