Chris Curtis, 56 WHBQ Memphis | Spring, 1973
Contributor Rob Grayson has digitized more of his tape collection. This is from the first of six sent in this week. Rob writes:
“More goodies… these were recorded all on the same day in Spring of 1973, and I think I got them from Memphis DJ Don Roberts (Barney Raines), straight off the radio.
You will notice the actual signal noise artifacts in the deep background and at times you can faintly hear another station on 560 behind the music. But, this is the real thing! Authentic radio listening in all aspects.
Chris Curtis is a capable jock here, and WHBQ is still running their original Johnny Mann Singers jingle cuts – just two, three if you include the Top Hour cut. This has the famous RKO General sound all over it!
There’s more to come from this same broadcast day, later on Airchexx.com
