Here’s one that will make you go WOW!… Terry Knight on WEAM!
**2021 Update** – This post has been viewed over 12 thousand times since first posting in 2014! That’s pretty amazing considering the station has been gone since 1984. Our viewers have long memories!
A few notes. You’ll notice there are no ‘jingles’, but there are some produced liners and sweepers, such as sweepers sounded in the 1960s. By 1968, WEAM was using jingles from PAMS. WEAM would later drop the jingles again in the 1970s during it’s progressive rock era.

**2014 Update** – Thanks to comments from those who were there, we can post some corrections and updates.
WEAM was 5,000 watts 24/7, whereas it’s competitor, WPGC was 10,000 watts. But WPGC was daytime only.

Apparently pulled right off the master reel, this comes to you in stunning audio quality for such an old aircheck. Runs about 5 minutes.
