WPGC FM and AM Morningside! Hello, just after Twelve Noon with Dan Mason and a Blues Brothers album on the way…
Dan Mason – Isn’t he the former CEO, President, etc., of CBS Radio? Well, yes, we sure think so! (Someone out there knows for sure). And here you see how well he fit in to the overall exciting sound of WPGC FM and AM! This is an important aircheck for a number of reasons. Even though this was the Washington DC market, the year was STILL 1978! One could argue that this was the year that FM actually “Made it” to the big time, as far as overall popularity compared to AM radio. Until this time, the AMs had dominance pretty much everywhere all over the U.S. and Canada.
Steve Michaels. Love the voice! While no description came with these airchecks, this sounds very much like Morning Drive. You’ll hear a bit of entertainment news about a minute in, then this quickly moves on into the above-described Dan Mason segment recorded just two days before Christmas, 1978!
