One great aircheck. Two great jocks.
Tony Taylor, who passed away in 2017, jocked in Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles in a career capped with his induction to the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame in 2008. Jim O'Brien, who died in a skydiving accident in 1983. also jocked in Philadelphia, New York and Philadelphia, and also Dallas, San Diego and Windsor-Detroit at the Big 8. On this aircheck we hear them back-to-back on WOR-FM, the great 98.7.
There's a great variety of current hits and oldies in this superb sample of the Bill Drake format on WOR-FM. The key word is variety - no 300-song playlist here and lots of music from widely different genres. It's the Big Town Sound, on the Great 98.7!
Enjoy Tony Taylor and Jim O'Brien on WOR-FM
