Tom Prestigiacomo, 79 WAKY Louisville #1 | 1978
Contributor Tom Prestigiacomo donated over a dozen airchecks of his and others’ programs at WAKY Louisville back in 2005 and we’re just now getting to the process of encoding these for exhibition. Despite this being labelled #1, Tom’s first WAKY appearance on this site features him doing a 1960s weekend in 1979.
Many fondly remember the Top 40 radio battles between WKLO, WAKY and to a lesser degree (because it wasn’t ‘quite’ Top 40), 84 WHAS. Perhaps you remember this, late 70s ‘disco’ era at WAKY. This is a fun 18 minute recording made ‘right off the board’. There are no drop-outs or AM noise to contend with – just a great deejay and his records, something that WAKY fans will really enjoy!
