Jackson Armstrong on 1510 WMEX Boston | February, 1968

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!

I love the great Jackson Armstrong! I used to listen to him on WKBW out of Buffalo, New York from 1970-73, when I lived in Niagara Falls, New York.

R.I.P. Jack.
This aircheck seems off speed, but it adds to the high energy he was so good at radiating!!

He sounds a little like a young Dick Biondi here.

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.
