A box of tapes arrived in the mail in January.  I was a bit surprised, but then remembered that Nancy Plum had promised to send some airchecks a little over a year ago.   Here’s the first of dozens of donated airchecks.  It’s Nancy Plum herself on Ten-Q from what I feel was one of the best time periods for Top 40 radio.   Interestingly enough, that same day I was rolling tape on WKBW (1520 Buffalo).   Maybe thats why I love Top 40 radio from this period of time, because I kept reliving it over and over…

Let’s introduce Nancy Plum.  She writes:

Happy Holidays from Nancy Plum!
Didn’t want to discard them & maybe you’d like them from my vast collection.

So, thanks to Nancy Plum, here’s a scoped snippet of Ten-Q in its final months as a Top 40 station before moving the format to FM. My good friend Willie Bee will love this – even the overnight slot was filled with excitement. Live radio 24/7… a thing of the past, but here for you on!
