“The Station with the Happy Difference!”


Long before legendary WQXI air personality Gary McKee arrived at the station, WQXI was a highly competitive and entertaining Top 40 station. As of this writing, this aircheck is the oldest recording of this station on our site. It’s the Paul Collins show. Collins talks between every record, after every commercial and this pretty representative of the state of live radio in the early 1960s.

Includes one full newscast and a news minute of just the headlines. Recorded before Christmas, a sharp cold front is bringing in very cold Winter air to the Atlanta metro, and WQXI is all over it.

This segment covers the time period just after midnight through just past 1AM. Part 2 will post shortly.
