“Exciting” Mike Adams, 68 WRKO Boston | August, 1976

“How ’bout some concert tickets, eh… Caller number NINE...” You’ll love this rather short, but high-energy aircheck of Mike Adams on WRKO during Boston’s Bicentennail celebration in the Summer of 1976! One can’t help but be swept up in the excitement heard on the air on RKO during this time period. For comparison, or perhaps, to illustrate where the entire broadcast chain was during this time, Co-Owned stations WXLO (98.7) New York, 800 CKLW Windsor, Ontario, 560 WHBQ Memphis, 610 KFRC San Francisco and 93 (930) KHJ Los Angeles all had nearly identical formats during this time and really were the industry leaders.

New England Sampler #2 – Composite: 68 WRKO Boston | March 31, 1980

Date of Recording: 03.31.1980 Station: 680 WRKO Boston Format: Top 40 Featured Air Talent: Various. See Description below. Contributor: Big Apple Airchecks Total Time: 6:06 Post Date: 11.30.2017 Airchexx Entry: 1,528 … Presenting Elton John at the Music Hall… This has not been posted elsewhere so THANKS to our contributor! Curator’s Notes: Audio: This came in with very poor audio consistent with a cassette tape that’s had much of it’s oxide coating worn off. Muddy and bottom-heavy (sound wise), I had to do a lot of digital doctoring to make this listenable. It is now, but it’s not quite WRKO… It’s a bit muddy, even after my cleanup efforts. Other than that, this is a GREAT representation of RKO General’s flagship radio station.

Mike Addams, 68 WRKO Boston | December 25, 1978

Yes, the disco era is in full swing, and WRKO is doing its part to burn a hole through the genre… but there’s plenty of Rock to be found on this Christmas day 1978. True ’nuff, this is a scoped presentation but you will hear the artist titles, and promotions for picture disk giveaways, concerts and more, with Mike Addams. Notice, there’s no Christmas music? Interesting. It’s just a typical day at the legendary 68 WRKO – this aircheck very representative of the late 70s when we all were in a different state of mind. This ‘check includes a ’60 second news update’ – that’s the way they used to present news from about 1976-1978.
