Contributor Robyn Watts struck gold sending these countless editions of “California Aircheck” tapes to us here at Airchexx!
Featured here is a QuickCheck – under five minutes scoped of the late Chuck Leonard (WABC, WRKS, WBLS, WQEW). Chuck is so comfortable doing this format its as if he totally belongs here among the WBLS family.
Recorded in 1989, this was a time when the station was competing directly with 98.7 WRKS for the Urban audience, and to a small degree except WRKS was skewing older, Hot 97.1.
Chuck Leonard would wind up on 1560 WQEW playing standards as one of his final gigs.
Our thanks to both Robyn Watts and California Aircheck for providing this aircheck on tape.
