Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week!
AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Edition #835 May 24, 2015 TOM RIVERS CKLW WINDSOR, ONT. AUGUST 29, 1971 (UNSCOPED)
Imagine tuning in your radio at two in the morning and hearing Tom Rivers live.
That's what CKLW listeners were treated to in the summer of 1971. In an era where radio stations treated all their day parts as important, the legendary Tom Rivers fills in for another great - Johnny Williams - on the all-night show on August 29, 1971 (preceded by none other than Hal Martin). Rivers wasn't at 'CK very long - he left for WIBG Philadelphia a few months later after less than a year at the Big 8 - but what a sweet pairing of jock and station!
Enjoy Tom Rivers on CKLW from August 29, 1971 ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
Thanks to Tom Howard for recording this aircheck and Don Shuttleworth for sending it to us!
