Tomorrow’s gonna be a day when you can stretch your dollars… and your legs
It broke my heart to have to scope this down. This is an original, over the air recording made by Bob Gilmore. It wasn’t a special recording – Bob has literally thousands of cassette and reel to reel tapes in his studio that he recorded over the years – no, this was just another made and it happened to be using his AM Stereo receiver. (Don’t ask me what model, I forgot since he told me when he gave me this file he burned to CD for me).
This features Dan Martin as the weekend jock on duty. There’s a full locally produced newscast in here and 8 minutes of programming in AM Stereo that sound better than half the FM airchecks we have on exhibit here. Literally. This is totally worth your listening time!

Great post! I worked with Dan during my tenure at WELI in the mid-80s. I’d love to hear more ‘ELI airchecks from those days(especially ones where I’m doing the news!).
It just so happens I have another one. Bob burned a CD for me with a bunch of really good airchecks that he recorded. Some of his tapes are digitized but most aren’t. I’m about to post what I consider the crown jewel of what he burned for me… a great aircheck of 92 PRO-FM From 1980! Holy cow batman..
Dan was Program Director at WTRY in the Albany NY market during much of the 1970’s and early 1980’s.
I also worked with Dan and handled afternoon drive news from 83-86 on WTRY. Bonus for anyone who has tape of me on his show!
Dan Martin was a very smooth entertaining air personality. Enjoyed listening to him.
