  1. Sounds like a perfect show to me ! Every set is clean, bright…fresh n tight ! John Leader…YOU’RE HIRED !! 🙂

  2. I first heard this in 1977 and listened to it so many times that I became fixated with John’s accent and inflections… Unfortunately I never came close to that level of greatness. This meant so much to me at a time where I was paying my hard-earned dues jocking at night at a small station in Northern Ontario, far from family and friends but stedfast in my resolve to make it in broadcasting..

    1. You deserved a slot on a major market station. I’ve always thought you have what it takes. Of course, these days radio is much different but I thought you should know how I feel about your level of radio talent.

  3. This aircheck was about a year and a half after I left to serve in the US Navy. I was working weekends at WQXI-FM at the time. Before I left Barry Chase was there along with Dave Weiss.

    Gary McKee, John Leader, Lee Logan , Tomm Rivers, Dave Smith and Ron Parker were hired after I left. Dave Weiss was nice enough to let me cut an aircheck in the production room which I took with me to American Forces Network Iceland and that aircheck got them to put me on their Iceland AM station to work during my time off from my regular Navy duties. Unfortunately Barry Chase has since passed away. I was priveleged to nominate and get Barry in the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame. WQXI was a great station full of talented jocks and nice people. The AM dial is not very good now here in Atlanta. That’s a shame because it could still be great if we had some good stations here. But you all know what messed that good thing up, don’t you ?
