Bobby Day’s first day on the air. Judging by his performance, it sounds like his first day in RADIO. But hey, everyone starts somewhere. Now, before you start saying “be tolerant”…we are. But, this was 1979 and you’ll be laughing in the privacy of your own space. So, why not?! This should dovetail nicely with a poll question on our airchexx.com facebook page to the effect of, “How was your first day in radio?” That’ll post soon, too!

If you wanna skip our facebook page, try going to the BOTTOM of this page and posting your answer. Perhaps your first day in radio went great. Perhaps, the best way to sum it up would be, “oops!”. Yea. Post that. You know you wanna!

For the record, this is our first post for both CFRW (which is an All-Sports station today) and for the city of Winnipeg. Aircheck courtesy of Daniel Coulombe, one of our Canadian contributors. Many, MANY thanks!
Now, a message from our founder…
Do you think you could spare a moment? Airchexx.com survives, literally, on the donations from people just like you. The ads you see take about 3 months to build up enough revenue just to get a small check. If you enjoy these archives, which so many out there do indeed rely upon, could you spare a little bit of cash? All of it goes to the hosting fees and miscellaneous costs of running this website. Thank you in advance.
