The Two words describe Ron O’Brien…
This aircheck is an original. Recorded on a two track reel, this was given to Big Apple Airchecks by Ron, himself, just prior to his untimely death in 2008. We are honored to present this to you, as it came from Big Ron O’Brien himself!

This is the 1982 WNBC aircheck, not the KBAB one.
You’re correct. It is now fixed. One of my rare errors. Thanks for letting me know. Steve
The station is now Hispanic as KXLQ.
1490 KXLQ licensed to Indianola is listed as having the KBAB call letters on that frequency from 1963-1984
