WPEN was a significant force in those days, known as great sounding adult contemporary station.
Fox doesn't disappoint as a jock (and for that matter as a meteorologist either!
He remained on Saturdays weekly for many years, and eventually went to once monthly.
For me, moments like those made him a joy to listen to. The second part features more 'BZ, WRKO-FM, WMEX and WROR. "WMEX plays hit number 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1-1-1-1..." - very cool! Throughout the years, Mc Dougall used several names. () We love getting airchecks from the great state of PA!He was "Mc Dougall in the Morning" at WTRY from 1980-85, and Sky Stewart at WFEA. Jim Nettleton's body of work includes gigs at WFIL and WABC - and while at WABC, he voice tracked at WCAU-FM.() As a student at SUNY New Paltz NY, I got a real kick out of listening to WINE at 95.1FM.They were a great sounding tightly formatted AC station.On 9/1/77, Pittman took over as PD with a whole new cast, including replacing Don Imus with Ellie Dylan, and also hiring Allen Beebe, Johnny Dark and Lee Masters. () This great sounding aircheck of WTIC was recorded 9/30/91.
WNBC was obviously trying very hard to sound as boring as possible in this aircheck, playing several slow songs in row - probably to contrast the coming change to full out Top 40. At the time, Steele was retiring from his daily Monday-Saturday programs.) Aircheck was contributed by Famous Amos WCBS-FM New York 2008.() The famous one counts down the top party songs of all time on New Years Eve 2008-2009.But that doesn't keep the agencies from trying again and again.Apparently this practice "works" often enough in the sense of selling enough of the product to make the practice economically sustainable, no matter how artistically objectionable.My thanks to Rich Bosse, who prides himself in the audio quality of his airchecks.
