The Wawa Goose
As the song goes, "Video Killed The Radio Star." But that's only part of the story.
On this aircheck,
spins the hits on
Wawa in the spring of 1978. Summer is "learning the craft" as many a jock did
back in the day when radio jobs were aplenty and stations had live jocks 24/7.
One wonders how the aspiring jocks of today "earn their wings." Or maybe they
don't, and wind up in other careers but
sometimes dreaming what a career in radio would have been like. Who knows how
many potential Wolfman Jacks,
Cousin Brucies and
Tom Rivers are out there never
to be heard? But their former learning grounds are now occupied by computer hard
drives, and radio is the worse for it.
Enjoy Steve Summer on CJWA (UNSCOPED) here.
