AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Now in both Real Audio and MP3
Edition #895 July 24, 2016 TOM SHANNON WKBW BUFFALO, N.Y. JULY 24, 1961, PT. 2 (UNSCOPED)
Once again, we're jumping in our aircheck time machine to the early days of the great WKBW.
Pittsburgh teenager Paul Carlson recorded 24 continuous hours of 'KB on July 24-25, 1961, giving us a wonderful audio souvenir of one of North America's greatest Top 40 stations. Among the jocks he recorded was Tom Shannon, who was in the first of two tours of duty with 'KB (he would return in the '80s). As we tune in 55 years ago, Shannon is filling in for the vacationing Russ Syracuse on the 9 a.m.-noon shift.
Enjoy Tom Shannon on WKBW from July 24, 1961, Pt. 2 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
Thanks to Russ Horton for the
original scoped aircheck and to John Troll for the superb restoration job!
