Marleen Foxx, 107.3 WRQX Washington | February 24, 1979

Something quite rare, donated by Big Apple Airchecks. Here is “Rock 107” during WRQX‘s rather short Album Rock format which ended shortly after this aircheck was recorded. Marleen Foxx is heard with her rather seductive voice (in my humble opinion) giving an […]
