AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #828
March 29, 2015


SHANE
WGR BUFFALO, N.Y.
MAY 12, 1975 (UNSCOPED)

Personality, people, passion - THAT was Shane.

No one did radio with more passion than Shane - passion for the music, passion for the listener, passion for his community. While Shane worked at a number of stations in the U.S. and Canada, the bulk of his career was spent at Buffalo's WGR in the '70s and '80s. At 'GR 55 he was really allowed to be himself and connect with the listeners and the community. It's a shame personality music radio like this has mostly gone the way of the Passenger Pigeon, but thanks to the magic of the Internet you can hear it again. Enjoy!

Enjoy Shane on WGR from May 12, 1975 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Bill Dulmage for another great aircheck!
