Jackson Armstrong, WKYC Cleveland | March, 1967

From deep in the Airchexx vault comes this rare recording of Your Leeeeeader, Jackson Armstrong in a typical lightning fast performance on WKYC. The source tape is a little muddy and this was obviously recorded slightly outside of the local signal contour since some fading is heard, but otherwise this is a decent sounding recording that will harken you back to the good ole days of AM radio, PAMS jingles and jocks who had fan clubs!

How great might this be if the audio actually worked? Thanks for wasting our time.

    The audio works just fine. I tested it on multiple platforms. Might I ask what browser and device you’re using so that I may troubleshoot any problem that might have come up?

Was there a TV show starring Big Jack? I also remember when NBC News used that sounder> I was only 3 when this aircheck was made, but I remember the sounder in later years. Enjoyed this aircheck, despite the fact that it wasn’t very clear.

Wow! I certainly remember WKYC and Big Jack. Never ever got into radio, but have been a radio geek, dx’er, collected surveys, studio in the house etc, because of this man. Excellent formatics, surveys which I collected, jingles. Couldn’t wait for the nighttime skywave!
