Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week!
AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Now in both Real Audio and MP3 Edition #854 October 4-11, 2015 COYOTE McCLOUD WQXI ATLANTA SUMMER 1976 (UNSCOPED)
No one rocked the mic quite like Coyote McCloud.
Before he became a mainstay in Nashville radio, McCloud did the evening shift at WQXI Atlanta in the mid-70s. This is the high-energy, no-holds-barred radio we love and we're pleased to get this aircheck from Charlie Ritenburg, who also restored the music. His talk-over of "Devil With a Blue Dress On" by Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels is pure Top 40 radio artistry. Why isn't radio this exciting anymore?
Enjoy Coyote McCloud on WQXI from the summer of 1976 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
Thanks to Charlie Ritenburg for another great aircheck!
The "Rhodes" to success led through Cincinnati and WSAI.
Dusty Rhodes began his long career in Cincinnati radio in 1961 at WSAI right out of Syracuse University. He spent the next five years at the Cincinnati Top 40 powerhouse first doing 9 p.m.-midnight, then 6-9 p.m. (Rhodes at one time boasted a 50 share for his evening shows). After a brief stay at CKLW Windsor-Detroit in 1966-67, Rhodes returned to the Queen City at various stations for the next 40 years. He still does an annual Christmas marathon show, syndicated on as many as 100 stations.
This aircheck comes to us from the personal archives of Dusty Rhodes. Thanks Dusty!
