Date of Recording: 1974 (Exact date unknown) Station: 560 WHBQ Memphis, Tennessee Featured Air Talent: George Klein, J.J. Jordan, Robert E. Knight, Dude Walker, Mason Dixon, Tom Kent, Steve Weed Contributor: Steve Bleecker Aircheck Entry: 1,429 Comments: WHBQ, that’s Billy Preston with George Klein in the Morning, 8:12 and Nothin from Nothing – looks like my paycheck every week! Where else can will you find a recording of George Klein on the air doing half of what made him famous, I mean, listening here, you almost expect Elvis to make an appearance! Klein was programming WHBQ at this point, but listen, this has the same ultra-tight format and big sound heard at every other RKO/General owned radio station! Note the jock list! Many of these guys would go on to much larger market...
