Ken Gilbert, WDRC-FM 103 (102.9) Hartford | 1982
WDRC-FM, from 1986 to 2014 was a live, personality-based Oldies station. It had been a Top 40 outlet beginning in 1969, with a three-year period as Album Rock from 1977-1980. The station has been Classic Rock as “The Whale” since 2015. This is a rare ‘check of Ken Gilbert (WAQY, WDRC-AM 1360) on ‘DRC-FM 103 from 1982, before the station made the move to Oldies. In ’83, both the AM and the FM side went Oldies, and if I remember correctly, the move to Oldies was gradual, rather than an abrupt format change.
This is very short and includes one jingle… Listen as DRC-FM plays the hits of the day – today’s Hartford listeners might be somewhat shocked to remember this particular time period on 102.9!

Now, a message from our founder…
Do you think you could spare a moment? Airchexx.com survives, literally, on the donations from people just like you. The ads you see take about 3 months to build up enough revenue just to get a small check. If you enjoy these archives, which so many out there do indeed rely upon, could you spare a little bit of cash? All of it goes to the hosting fees and miscellaneous costs of running this website. Thank you in advance.
