Paul DiMarco

Ron Stevens, 105.5 WQGN (Groton) New London | 1986

Here’s another from Contributor Paul DiMarco (Mr. 70s, as he’s known at his “Totally 70s Radio Network“). This is our very first entry from New London, CT. It was CHR in 1986 and remains a Top 40 giant in the Navy Submarine capital of Southern New England. In radio, Legal Identification is important, but these days it can be somewhat deceptive.  Q105 says it’s from New London, but its proper city-of-license is Groton. This aircheck features Ron Stevens, who is a new entry into our “Featured Jocks” category. Ron joins literally hundreds of other radio people featured here on this website. The quality of this recording is very good, and this is something that Contributor Paul DiMarco prides himself in. This is very short, around 5 minutes, but I real...

Ken Gilbert, 102.9 WDRC-FM Hartford | June 17, 1989

Courtesy of Contributor “Mr. 70s“, Paul DiMarco, here’s a pristine quality recording of my friend Ken Gilbert on the old “Big-D 103” oldies station. The recording is so good, in fact, you’ll swear this is being broadcast live as you stream it! Hey Chris, I think there’s a price check at register two… Highlights of this aircheck include tons of phone call requests aired live, classic PAMS WDRC jingles, originally sung for the AM side 1360 WDRC, and a contest where the winner is invited to the “Oldies but Goodies” cruise on the Connecticut River. Listen for the contest tease and the winner’s phone call included in this aircheck. The commercials have been left intact for historical purposes. This aircheck was tightly scoped by ...

Contributor Paul DiMarco apparently has most of the master reels from our friend Ken Gilbert and we’re slowly getting them archived for the ages. Here’s another recording from the master reel. From apparently spring or autumn of 1982 when WDRC-FM was in the middle of its attempt at pure CHR, here’s Ken sounding really fantastic, albeit doing the overnight gig preparing for morning drive. It’s labelled Part 2, because this comes in four ...
