Airchexx Presents: The WLS Big 89 Rewind 2007B – Fred Winston

Fred Winston doesn’t skip a beat and he sounds like he just picked up where he left off during the MusicRadio years at WLS!

He weaves all the original WLS show elements together masterfully… but really, this is just Fred Winston being himself! You won’t be disappointed! Big thanks to WLS PD Kipper McGee for providing ALL the audio for Big 89 Rewind 2007 and 2008!   Advertisements

As of this writing, we haven’t heard from any of them. Sadly, Larry Lujack is no longer with us to share his memories. Superjock passed away on December 18, 2013 at his home in New Mexico.

The way this is presented is by year, in scoped out sections.  Here in section 1A, you’ll hear Ol’ Uncle Lar and Li’l Tommy’s three hour show, condense...
