AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK
Edition #1296 - May 19, 2024


WALT "BABY" LOVE
WXLO New York
May 17, 1974 (UNSCOPED)

(Contributor: Don Shuttleworth)

Love is in the air, and on the air.

 Walt "Baby" Love that is. The native of Creighton, Pennsylvania, has starred on radio since the '60s, when he made history by becoming the first African-American jock on Houston Top 40 powerhouse KBOX. Love later made history when he became the first Black jock in the RKO chain at CKLW Windsor-Detroit and WOR-FM New York. Click on the link below for more on Walt "Baby" Love.

Enjoy Walt Baby Love on WXLO from May 17, 1974 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
