WZOU 94.5 Boston – Harry Bud Nelson – March 7 1987
For a while in the 1980s, Boston had a three-way Contemporary Hit Radio battle, between WXKS Kiss 108, Hit Radio 103 WHTT, and the station heard on this aircheck, 94.5 WZOU. One of the legendary jocks who worked behind the WZOU microphones, was Harry “Bud” Nelson.
Nelson’s long radio career included on-air and later PD at Top 40 68 WRKO/BOSTON, and he later went on to become PD at sister Oldies outlet WROR. Other radio stops included programming and on-air posts at KSLQ/ST. LOUIS, B95/KANSAS CITY, KLTK/DENVER, 610 KFRC/SAN FRANCISCO and WAPP/NEW YORK. He most recently ran the MAINE-based HARRY NELSON ARTIST MANAGEMENT AND MARKETING. This aircheck features Nelson in mid-career at WZOU.
HARRY “BUD” NELSON, passed away FRIDAY, JUNE 4th, 2021, at age 71. -Ellis
