A bit of processing was required to make this tape listenable, but once you get a few minutes into it things clear up a bit. Here’s Big Ron O’Brien from his East Coast days at 99X! All the hits, high energy and one lone shotgun jingle make for a memorable listen on this ‘check – chock full of mid-70s NYC advertisers. This is so old, the store owners are probably either on Social Security or long gone!

  1. This is a really fun aircheck. The commercials are great. a more accurate date for this aircheck would be august 28 1974. they are promoting a Beatles feature on that upcoming labor Day weekend so it has to be either late August or very early September. then there is a commercial that talks about a restaurant that has some big thing going on tonight called Thank god It’s Wednesday. so, assuming this is the Wednesday before Labor day weekend 1974, that would place the date as August 28. Anyway, as always, thanks so much for all of the enjoyment your site brings to all of us.

  4. as MGD4Ever said, this aircheck IS from August 28 1974 and just mislabeled. Several references to Labor Day coming Monday as well as the Wednesday’s commercial are fairly good evidence of a 08/28/1974 air date.


  5. The weird thing here is at the very end…why were they running an ad for Helen Reddy’s “brand new album” that at the time was a year old?
