Chris Roth, WRQX Washington DC | July 18, 1999
Usually, just a few weeks before Christmas, we’re all thinking about snow and cold, but sometimes its nice to remember Summer’s heat! Going back 16 1/2 years as of this writing, here’s the first aircheck featuring weekend guy Chris Roth. Weekends are more music intensive, and you’ll hear what was being played on WRQX, which at this time was owned by ABC Radio, before they became part of the Walt Disney radio empire.
While this is scoped for legal purposes, the commercial breaks are left intact. Why? Well, in normal radio listening, people would rather tune out the commercials and just hear the music, but because we’re a museum, the commercials are appropriate to leave in, as they are all date-specific. It helps put you, the listener, back into your time machine to remember when this was live radio!
Jack Diamond was the morning man during this time frame.
It’s the holiday season and if you remember, we do have a store with a few items. How about an Airchexx Coffee Mug! It will highlight your studio, man cave or just the cupboard for when your fellow radio enthusiasts and geeks show up for a visit! Just Come visit my store on CafePress!” target=”_blank”>Click Here!
