WNBC was obviously trying very hard to sound as boring as possible in this aircheck, playing several slow songs in row - probably to contrast the coming change to full out Top 40. At the time, Steele was retiring from his daily Monday-Saturday programs.
He was "Mc Dougall in the Morning" at WTRY from 1980-85, and Sky Stewart at WFEA. Jim Nettleton's body of work includes gigs at WFIL and WABC - and while at WABC, he voice tracked at WCAU-FM.
Besides Nettleton who is always sounds professional and smooth, this station was TIGHT.
() Laquidara was a huge force in Boston radio, particularly in the 1980's-1990's.
From 1972-1996 He did mornings - "The Big Mattress" on 'BCN, then took the program over to WZLX for another four years before retiring to Maui in 2000. But in 1970, WBCN was free form progressive radio, and Laquidara's shifts included sound effects and novelty tunes.
() Jim's Halloween shows were always a lot of fun, and this one is no exception.
It features lots of sound effects and novelty records - in other words, it differed from that average, everyday format that WACKY 102 did!They were a great sounding tightly formatted AC station.They simulcasted with their AM, which was actually 940, licensed to Brookfield, CT.Fox doesn't disappoint as a jock (and for that matter as a meteorologist either!) Aircheck was contributed by Famous Amos WCBS-FM New York 2008.Jim would arrive at the station with tons of records and carts he'd use for music and sound for the show.
