…How ’bout it babe, a little puppy would make a great Christmas gift!”


Dr. John Leader is a hidden gem on an airstaff of unbelievable talent. “Quicksie in Dixie” was one of the monnikers used over the years, but in this recording made JUST before Christmas, 1972, the station is simply calling itself ‘QXI. Really. This moves along so fast it’s hard to keep up. Dr. John Leader has that keen, sharp wit that the best of the best Top 40 jocks had, the ability to say something incredibly funny right off the top of his head in between a record. Fast or slow, it didn’t matter.

Taken from side two of Tom Konard’s “Aircheck Factory – Around the Dial #12” cassette provided by our Contributor, Daniel Coulombe, this was the next to last aircheck presented as a wayback feature. It certainly does not disappoint!
