We just been in contact with the police department concerning a traffic light at Watkins & Chelsea? Checked to see if it’s been stolen or not! A bit of tongue in cheek humor about a traffic light being out, but it does highlight, even if snarkily, the problem with crime in certain parts of the Memphis metro area. Anyway, this isn’t about Memphis crime, its, rather, a kinda funny morning show done by Stew Robb. I say ‘kinda’ because some one-liners are really funny and others… well, kinda corny. As with most WHBQ, and in general, RKO General-owned radio stations, this includes DJ patter going into and coming out of commercial breaks, after station jingles and pretty much anywhere the talent can get a word in. Speaking of jingles, WHBQ jingles are heard out...
Walt Jackson is a great jock! What this recording exudes is pure FUN!

Description by Steve West I don’t know if this was intended to be a demo or not, but longtime Memphis radio personality Rob Grayson recently put together this really fun piece, condensing his radio career down from his early radio beginnings in the 1970s right up to just about current, as of this writing. While there’s really no way to include all the great moments in someone’s career, this one leaves us begging for more. Here’s hoping Rob sends us some more of this awesome radio candy! And yes. It really does only run about five minutes! #1605
