Gentlemen, start your engines!

It's Indy day, and the hits are flying past faster than the cars will be in a few hours at the Old Brickyard. Carol Ford - who held down the overnight shift at WOWO from 1976 to 1978 - is heard in the first aircheck from this famous Fort Wayne station to be heard on Rock Radio Scrapbook after years of searching. Ford pretty much had a national audience given WOWO's tremendous 50,000-watt night-time signal. Years later, Ford would enjoy that same audience reach again when she appeared on SiriusXM's Soul Town.

Ford also jocked at WDMT-FM Cleveland, KYA San Francisco,and WRKS New York.
