This is an interesting aircheck in the respect that DJ Dave (corrected) Scott promotes that his son Greg is going on – and does in this 16 minute scope of mid-60s “Audio KQV”.

KQV is a unique radio station from a number of different standpoints. First, it is still known by the only set of call letters ever issued to it dating all the way back to 1922. The station itself first went on the air in 1919, only weeks after the first station dedicated for broadcasting. WBZ Springfield MA. It took 3 years to get an actual broadcast license for KQV, however.

The top 40 era at KQV began on January 13, 1958. Many later-to-be famous deejays were heard on KQV over the years, including TV game show announcer Rod Roddy “…Come On Down!”, and somebody known as Jeff Christie. Christie would himself burst upon the national spotlight as national Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, on August 1, 1988.

These facts lend enormous credibility to a station that in any other market with it’s power output might have been lost to time decades ago. Jeff Roteman is a radio historian who built a tribute site for KQV. You can check it out HERE. KQV is today an all-news station. It’s website and live news stream can be accessed here.

As always, we appreciate audio donations. If you have a recording of KQV and wish to include it in our archives, please contact us.

  1. It’s actually DAVE Scott. He was at KQV since 1943 (!) and did afternoons in the Top 40 format from ’58-’68. He left to do news for about a year at WIXY/Cleveland then came back to Pittsburgh to do country at 1080/WEEP in 1969 (part of him in on a WEEP aircheck here on Airchexx).

  2. Another interesting fact about KQV. When they needed an extra voice to fill in, they brought Bob Lewis to town from sister station WABC.

    i heard an aircheck of Bob Lewis doing a fill in show, a wile ago.
