Pete Franklin, 1100 WWWE Cleveland | January 26, 1976

1100 Cleveland WWWE WKYC WTAM Pete Franklin

Contributor Steve Tefft added this scratchy recording of the late Sportscaster Pete Franklin at the place that made him famous. Steve writes:

…{this} is from January 26th, 1976. The Cleveland Crusaders were the city’s World Hockey Association team. Its general manager, Jack Vivian, had just (that day) cut Gerry Cheevers, the team’s goalie and only real box office draw(Cheevers played for the Boston Bruins before jumping leagues). Franklin lays into Vivian on this check.

Do what you can to clean the airchecks up; not sure what you can do to remove static. Remember, I recorded this at night in southern Connecticut, hundreds of miles away.

1100 AM Cleveland is now WTAM.
