Curator’s Notes:

Without much to go on, it took a bit of work to look up the history of this long-gone Bartell-owned Top 40 station. Today’s KYKY “Y98” was the original KSLQ. Originally taking to the air under those call letters in 1972, the station lasted just 10 years, then changed to Adult Contemporary in 1981 and the call letters changed to the current KYKY in 1982.

The late Bill Bailey (of WLS fame) is heard here doing mornings. This is not quite the same morning show pace listeners are used to today, but it is caller-intensive. The then-current contest is “Hi-Lo”, where listeners call in to guess the amount in the KSLQ jackpot. Nobody wins on this original reel-to-reel recording.

It’s Friday the 13th and we’re reminded of that quite a bit. It’s pretty good morning show fodder here.

This is an aircheck from new contributor Sandy Bailey. Sandy met her late husband at WLS Chicago and they were married over 40 years before his passing a few short years ago.
