The Big Ape roars again!
For two decades, WAPE "The Mighty 690" was a popular Top 40 station in northern Florida. Jay Thomas, the Greaseman, Ted Richards and scores of other jocks rocked the box at The Big Ape until the station flipped to country in 1980. This composite aircheck of Dino Summerlin gives us an idea of what WAPE was like in the mid-60s, ape calls and all.
Enjoy this composite of Dino Summerlin on WAPE from 1963-64 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
The Tall One is standing tall again.
The legendary jock has returned to the station he called home from 1961 to 1967 with a new show called "Dick Williams Solid Gold Rock and Roll." It features Dick's strongest forte - his humour - plus a nice blend of oldies and classic CFPL jingles.
