AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Now in both Real Audio and MP3 Edition #861 November 29, 2015 JOHNNY BARRETT WKBW BUFFALO, N.Y. JULY 24, 1961, Pt. 1 (UNSCOPED)
Jocks around the rock, live 24 hours a day.
That was radio in 1961 and WKBW was no exception. Jungle Jay Nelson, Russ Syracuse, Johnny Barrett, Jim Taylor, Tom Shannon, Ted Hackett and Bob Diamond spun the hits round the clock every day live to 'KB's wide listening audience. On July 24-25, 1961 Pittsburgh teenager Paul Carlson decided to put it on tape. He sat in a Buffalo hotel room and with the help of his friends recorded 24 continuous hours of WKBW. The audio has survived and can be heard on our 24 Hours of 'KB section. And thanks to John Troll, the music has been restored to portions of this recording which was sent to us by Russ Horton. Thanks guys and now let's enjoy more 24 Hours of 'KB.
