Courtesy of BigAppleAirchecks, here’s a wonderful taste of 93/KHJ during the Charlie Van Dyke era. KHJ is full of excitement and personality oozes out of the very pores of this radio station. Outside of the Drake era, it really didn’t get much […]

Chuck Knapp, 68 WRKO Boston | August, 1967

WRKO in 1967… the call letters scream Bill Drake, but in this aircheck, the signature Drake sound, and jingles, are not there. In fact, when WRKO launched, in March of ’67, the station launched without the talents of the talented consultant. You’ll […]

Early Progressive FM Radio Sampler – KZAP Sacramento, KSAN San Francisco | 1968

This is an odd aircheck, at least the master was. Lots of album cuts, all very heavy progressive rock from 1968. Forget everything you’ve ever heard about how the jocks sounded in this era, this is the real deal. They sound stoned, […]

This begins with an old-fashioned shift-turnover featuring the legendary ‘Duke of Louisville’ himself, Bill Bailey talking about the previous weekend’s “Battle of the Stars” competition between area media. Sounds like there was lots of fun, and plenty of Bailey’s snarky sense of […]

Tom Prestigiacomo, 79 WAKY Louisville #4 | Summer, 1978

More blazing Summer fun from ‘Wacky 79’! Tom Prestigiacomo was nice enough to donate this series of airchecks of his time at WAKY – actually, as I recall, I had to pry them, as Tom is as humble as he is nice. […]
