“Once again, we are giving away hot pants!”

Comments:

Sounding much as if a table microphone was placed in front of a transistor radio speaker, here’s a quick aircheck of Jim Quinn. Quinn runs a very up-tempo show and has a good sense of humor. There is a promotion going on, giving away ‘hot pants’. The first break you hear there’s a winner on the phone. KQV was the leading Top 40 station in Pittsburgh in 1971 – an era before FM listening had caught up with AM. You’ll enjoy this 4:25 scope of 14/KQV!

  1. This was May 17, 1971. (he says it at 1:00). Quinn was the king of nights in Pittburgh radio. Bob Harper was program director at this time. The KQV-IPs include: Chuck Brinkman, Bob DeCarlo, Jon Summers, Jim Quinn, Jay Davis, and Bob Wood. Former KQV morning man Bob Wilson is heard voicing the ID. He was production director. This was a great era of KQV. Robin Watts, do you have any more KQV for us?

  3. Great stuff here. Great old tunes. But what a crazy non-PC hot pants promotion …lol. Quinn hasn’t changed much 47 years later 🙂
