Bob Lang & Charlie Fox on 63 KDWB St. Paul | December, 1974

We have a number of the 90s, 101.3 FM CHR version of this station, but this is the first of the original AM Top 40 recordings!

What a great morning show. This is what they called “The new sound of KDWB”… and it was memorable! Here’s the “Q” format done in the Twin Cities and it’s just perfect timing that this posts now as this aircheck and the calendar say Christmas is coming soon!

The Phrase that Pays contest is well underway. As a gag, these guys call midday guy John Sebastian at home just to wake him and say Bill Drake is calling. Here’s a hilarious morning show, done on AM. That’s AM, for you kiddies who just can’t believe anything interesting was ever broadcast on that band!

Steve West is a 39 year veteran of broadcasting. His air work as a Jock and News Anchor includes six radio markets and over two-dozen radio stations. Steve currently works on-air for the Super Radio USA media group out of Minnesota. Steve is the founder of the Airchexx Media Group and manages and Airchexx Live - the official station of Airchexx.

I’d say this is more like clowning around on an all-night show, rather than a true morning show. I wonder how much eggnog was being consumed that night?? Great aircheck!

Great Air Check. Is Charlie Fox the same guy who was Tom Jones on KSTP and Captain Whammo on WMET in Chicago?

Charlie, listened to you on 64 KFI, sure miss hearing your voice!

A quick listen and several references to “tonight” — sounds like a couple of jocks goofing around after a station Christmas party late at night. Not a morning drive show…
