John Landecker in the Afternoon on 89 WLS | 1988


Here’s a slice of the end of WLS as a music station. WLS is running the ‘serial number’ game and Landecker handles the call perfectly… it’s not a boogie check, but good nonetheless.

I used to listen to John “records’ Landecker on WLS when I lived in Wisconsin – a great jock – good pipes, inflection, and excellent on air skills. I used to love how we would say “Its John ‘Records’ Landecker and records is my REAL middle name!” truly a radio legend. I also LOVED the WLS PAMS series jingles – some of the best!
