AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #968 - Week of December 17, 2017

RUSS CONRAD
KEX Portland, Ore.
December 13, 1958

It was a time of innocence, when life seemed to move a little slower. But rock 'n' roll was starting to shake things up

It's Christmastime 1958 and Russ Conrad is on the air at heritage Portland station KEX. Conrad started at KEX in 1947 and spent most of the next 28 years there, the last decade-and-a-half on the all-night show. Conrad is heard here in afternoon drive spinning lots of long-forgotten tunes from a time when rock 'n' roll was new, tweets were a sound emitting from birds, and the roads were filled with cars with really big fins. Enjoy!

Enjoy Russ Conrad on KEX from December 13, 1958
... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Dan Steeves for this audio gem!
