  1. Actually, Rick Dees moved to KHJ a few years after this aircheck was recorded in the spring of 1979 replacing The True Don Bleu.

  2. The whole General Tire thing is one of the things that got RKO in trouble. General Tire franchise dealership in markets where RKO General had stations were “encouraged” to use the RKO station for advertising. When the accusations were first brought up there wasn’t enough evidence. However, the subject came up again and this time there was a paper trail. There were also other issues that cause the fall of RKO general.

  3. This aircheck proves that WHBQ had a lot more going for it than just Dees’ show. John Long and his talented air staff gave Memphis a first rate Top 40 station during the late seventies.

  4. And remember this is shortly before the death of Elvis that same summer. Interesting to hear Waylon on Q. And yes John Long programmed a terrific top 40 there and elsewhere.
