My thanks to Glen Stevens WAQY Springfield, MA 1980.
() Glen did overnights, and then middays at WAQY during the "WACKY 1-OH-2" days of the station, before they went AOR (now Classic Rock). Joe rockee with the oldies on the old WROR, and as evidenced in this aircheck, makes special connections with listeners calling in. a real "radio Pro" - which happens to be the name of Joe's just released book.
They were a great sounding tightly formatted AC station.
They simulcasted with their AM, which was actually 940, licensed to Brookfield, CT.
The ET's for the spots were seriously scratchy, too.
But, it's the "Gay, gay Phil Christy Show" and it's obvious Christy has a pleasantly dry sense of humor.
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.
My thanks to Rich Bosse, who prides himself in the audio quality of his airchecks.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.Besides Nettleton who is always sounds professional and smooth, this station was TIGHT.Fox doesn't disappoint as a jock (and for that matter as a meteorologist either!) Aircheck was contributed by Famous Amos WCBS-FM New York 2008.
