And Don Knotts… no, I mean haha, Mick Jaggar…   Curator’s Notes: Remember back when just about every radio station that played Top 40 or some sort of Rock music was live, even all night long? Well, this is the throwback to that bygone era, and incidently, it was on an Oldies station!

Charlie Brown & Sign Off, 1190 WBMJ San Juan | August, 1968

Date of Recording: 08.xx.68 Station: 1190 WBMJ San Juan, Puerto Rico Format: Top 40 Featured Air Personality: Charlie Brown Contributor: Karl Phillips Total Time: 24:10 Airchexx Entry: 1,523 Curator’s Notes: This dovetails nicely with the Scott Brady aircheck posted recently. Recorded a bit prior to this one, WBMJ is using a wide selection of PAMS 60s classic jingles. The formatics are right out of the ABC ‘mainland’ playbook, and WBMJ has the entire English speaking market to itself. This was recorded during the afternoon show and includes the final half hour or so right up till sign off.

Curator’s Notes: Shortly after Puerto Rico was devastated for the second time in two weeks by a hurricane, I put the call out to see if there were any airchecks of radio on the island to post, to give more publicity for the need for more help for this ravaged U.S. Territory. Contributor Karl Philips immediately contacted me to say he had a few recordings of his time on the island several decades ago. What follows is a great recording highlighting the Rock of San Juan in it&...
