AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #1015 - Week of November 18, 2018

RON BRITAIN
WCFL Chicago
November, 1966

In the middle of the British Invasion came a deejay named Britain.

Ron Britain, that is, and he truly loved the English sound - it wasn't an act. Britain was on WCFL, which was just starting to make its impact as a Top 40 station when this aircheck was recorded. In 1966 Britain was part of a power-packed lineup that included Jim Runyon, Joel Sebastian, Dick Williamson, Jim Stagg and Barney Pip. Dick Biondi would arrive the following year.

Enjoy Ron Britain on WCFL from November, 1966 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.

Thanks to Bill Dulmage for this great aircheck!
