Jackson Armstrong seems to be one of airchexx.com’s favorites – his name shows up in our search page almost as frequently as Dan Ingram – and little wonder why! One of the fastest talkers ever, Armstrong has a long history of gracing radio stations with his mouth, one of them being WMEX Boston.

Here’s a young Jackson Armstrong with vocal cords engaged – certainly revving up WMEX – which at this time was in hot pursuit of WRKO. This aircheck literally rolls along at light speed! Listen how Armstrong plays the Rolling Stones jingle, then never misses a beat in ‘fixing’ it. You’ll also hear those custom PAMS jingle cuts exclusively for WMEX. The “Good Guys” were definitely cookin’ in Boston in ’68!

  1. AMAZING when you think of the roster of talent that went through that place….Larry Justice, JJ Jeffrey (as Melvin X Melvin) , Ed Hider, Jack Gale, Larry Lujack….
    I think there were 3 things that doomed them. l. an inferior signal except along the coast 2. their public affairs/talk commitment that relegated music only from 6 am to l0 pm daily 3. owner Mac Richmond who hired talented people but then bullied them.
