Old Gold 1 | Upper Midwest Sampler, 1971


First added to this site in mid-2003.
This is the first in a series of assorted airchecks that I’d like to simply call “Old Gold”. One listen and you’ll know why. This is volume 1. It features airchecks of various upper midwest stations from 1971.


Among the stations you’ll hear in Volume 1:
WDRQ, WAAM Ann Arbor, WCAR Detroit, WLYT Cleveland Heights Ohio and CKLW Windsor. There’s plenty more in this series so come back often!


Steve West is a 39 year veteran of broadcasting. His air work as a Jock and News Anchor includes six radio markets and over two-dozen radio stations. Steve currently works on-air for the Super Radio USA media group out of Minnesota. Steve is the founder of the Airchexx Media Group and manages Airchexx.com and Airchexx Live - the official station of Airchexx.

WAAM sure got their money’s worth out of Pams series 43!! TM was well represented in this composite as well. I think that Old Gold format was a product of Pams. Thanks for the look back!!
