Steve West, WGKX Memphis | October 9, 2004

Date of Recording: 10.09.2004 Station: 105.9 WGKX Memphis (Branded as “Kix 106“) Owner: Cumulus Media//Memphis Radio Group Format: Contemporary Country Featured Air Personality: Steve West Contributor: Steve West Original Post Date: 10.11.2004 Curator’s Notes: The artist known as Steve West was digitally captured from a tape, recorded in Millington, Tennessee directly off the air on this particular date. Now, frankly, it’s been quite a while since I listened to this (and I’m not sure what’s on it, if I sounded good or if a dose of embarassment will follow), so let the listener judge for his or herself just what this guy sounds like on the air. Being that this was 2004, and I’d been on the station doing weekends and fill ins for about 2 1/2 years at...

Airchexx Presents: MusicRadio 77 Recreated Featuring Steve O’Brien | December 31, 2005

In my opinion, none tops this third of a four part special that I produced for this website for New Year’s Day, 2006. This was originally posted in Real Audio form, back in the days before we went to the WordPress publishing platform. What precipitated the change in platforms and streaming media was a server cra...

Sample Hour of 1400 WSTC Stamford CT | June 7, 2017

Date of Recording: 06.05.2017 Station: 1400 WSTC Stamford, Connecticut, USA Format: Full Service Oldies/Variety Hits Featured Air Personality: Steve West (Steven Sawyer) Contributor: Steve West Airchexx Entry: 1,495 Comments: Perhaps the very first thing that should be mentioned with regard to this aircheck is the fact that because of the way we performed ‘live’ shows, every element was tracked – albeit five minutes before it aired so that the effect was a 100% live product – but because of this fact, I was able to take this particular Wednesday afternoon show and piece together all the elements which I had as separate tracks in my home studio, then mix it down to the exact end product as it sounded when transmitted. The only difference being that this aircheck is i...

Steve West Last Show, WMC-FM Memphis | October 30, 2005

Date of Recording: 10.30.2005 Station: 99.7 WMC-FM Memphis, Tennessee, USA Format: Hot Adult Contemporary Featured Air Personality: Steve West Contributor: Steve West It’s another WHATEVER WEEKEND, here on FM 100! Comments: FM 100 was the culmination of a career to me. True, I was only full time there for one Summer, but the station’s reputation, the life, the energy… the whole aura that surrounded this station put me in a trance from the first day I entered the building. I can’t say why I hold such an emotional attachment to WMC-FM. I will say that this particular evening was the last time I was on major market radio, the last time I got to interact with callers or really be myself on a commercial radio station. Given my feelings toward this station, and Memphis, T...

Date of Recording: March 20, 2009 Station: 103.1 WUAG Greensboro NC Format: College Featured Air Personalities: Jarrel Mason, Steve West Contributor: Jarrel Mason Comments: Perhaps the most creative radio that can be heard today is in the college world.

Jarrell says he’s graduating and this interview was the final event of his final program on WUAG – so congratulations are in order. If you’re not in tune with the state of today’s radio, or just want to understand what happened to commercial radio since the 1970s, this interview will clear some things up. Your webmaster has a few funny stories to tell along the way.
