Many years ago, Andy Bologovsky sent in a whole collection of WAVZ airchecks which he digitized himself and sent as an audio CD. We posted most of the CD’s contents but had omitted a couple of historically important relics.

Rusty Potts is heard here in late Spring, 1969. WAVZ is airing PAMS jingles and the reverb is stunningly on par with that heard on 77 WABC New York. This is a station very much in competition with the greatest Top 40 stations across New England. Our featured jock would go on to other opportunities, including a 40 year run on Sag Harbor’s 92.1 WLNG! Now recently retired, we thought this would be a good time to present some of Rusty Potts’ early radio work and show that he had so much talent even as a young man in the radio business. We hope you’ll enjoy!
