..Try sleeping on your back sometime…
This station shows the logical evolution of radio, if one understands what has been going on with over-the-air radio. The personalities seem to have gone online. Well, here’s an example of what happens when radio professionals take to the internet airwaves. RadioMaxMusic was the first internet destination for both Bob Shannon and Steve West. At the time this aircheck was recorded, Bob Shannon was holding down the 3 to 7pm time slot on WCBS-FM New York. His was one of the most popular shows in the city at the time. He was also working with his wife, Connie T. Empress both at 92.1 WLNG out on Eastern Long Island and on RadioMaxMusic.com. Steve West was the Afternoon Drive News Anchor on the Information Radio Network, and had just ended a four year run doing news for the Young & Elder Morning Show on WGKX “Kix 106”, and being the Evening 7-midnight jock. We led active radio lives!
The best way to describe the sound of this is major market professional! This sound could hold it’s own in any market, in fact given the quality of talent these days, in some places it would probably rate highest in the market! Well… okay, that’s just personal conjecture but one might notice that your webmaster is proud of both his work on this station and the fact that he got to work with some incredibly talented personalities.. it was a real treat!
Steve West is a 41 year veteran of broadcasting. His air work as a Jock and News Anchor includes six radio markets and over two-dozen radio stations. Steve is the founder of Airchexx.com and Hitoldies.net - All the BIG Hits!
