“Super” Shannon, WKBW Buffalo | 1976


Sounding suspiciously like Jack Armstrong (I know he’s not, but they say imitation’s the best form of flattery), motor mouth Super Shannon speeds through a 2 and a half minute scope of one of my all time favorite stations, WKBW! Not much more can be said of this other than I wish it was longer, mid-70s KB was hotter than a firecracker, as most people who listened up and down the eastern seaboard will attest to.

1520 WKBW

Cannot get the aircheck to play now (3-4-12.

But maybe … “Baby It’s You.”

    Steve “Super Shannon” Reid was a good friend of mine for the past 10 years and he was truly one of the great ones. He loved talking about his time on WKBW and other broadcast stations.
