Dick Shannon was WCFL's voice in the night.
Shannon mostly worked the all-night show during his four years (1972-76) at the Chicago powerhouse. He moved into the 10 p.m.-2 a.m. shift not long before the station switched to Beautiful Music in March 1976. After WCFL, he went to WQXI Atlanta.
Enjoy Dick Shannon on WCFL from October 18, 1972 (UNSCOPED, Pt. 2) ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
Thanks to Don Shuttleworth for this great aircheck!
