Dale Dorman, 68 WRKO Boston | 1973
… It’s Monday Morning and it’s going to rain
And Cher’s “Gypsie’s, Tramps and Theives” is skipping!!!!
Well… the Drake era has been over for a while, and Dale Dorman is even more wacky than when Drake tried to reel him in! He sings over intros, and well, the whole show is just silliness.
This aircheck absolutely proves that WRKO was playing RECORDS!!!! And apparently the needle broke on the right hand turntable. hahahahaha yes, apparently Dale is running his own board this particular day.
Now, as you listen to this, you’ll probably think, as I do, that this is not one aircheck, but rather, several strung together to give us listeners a good impression of Dale Dorman in 1973. Oh… and if you pine for the old Bill Drake TOP O’ THE HOUR Jingle… you’ll hear it about halfway through!
Bill Rossi, who will work with Dale at Kiss-108 some 20 odd years later, is heard at the tail end of a newscast. But not before having some fun with Uncle Dale before it!
Listen carefully, this passes by real quickly! See if you can keep up!
