680 Memphis WMPS

It’s a Friday night at “Super 68” and Donnie Brooks is at the controls of Plough’s superstation! WMPS is doing its best to imitate Chicago’s WLS, and by the sounds of this aircheck, it’s working. Note the WLS type jingles, such as the cut “The Rock of the River“, set to the tune of WLS’ “The Rock of Chicago“.

Note the full length commercial for Wrigley Spearmint Gum, and some historic Memphis movie theaters that are no longer there.
