WFIL Profile WFIL Philadelphia 1972
It was one of the hottest Top 40 stations on the planet.
WFIL started playing the hits in 1966 and quickly soared in the ratings. The original lineup consisted of Chuck Browning, Jay Cook, Jim Nettleton, George Michael, Long John Wade and Dave Parks. All but Michael and Parks remained by the time of this 1972 profile, which also contains the voices of Dr. Don Rose, Jim O'Brien, Dan Donovan and Brother Love. This was the golden era of Top 40 radio, so let's go back!
Enjoy this wonderful WFIL Profile from 1972 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
