Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week!
AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Edition #845 August 2, 2015 TOMMY SHANNON WKBW BUFFALO, N.Y. JULY 25, 1961, PT. 1 (UNSCOPED)
It's the gift that keeps on giving.
On July 24-25 1961, radio enthusiast Paul Carlson and some of his friends holed up in a Buffalo hotel room and taped Top 40 giant WKBW for 24 consecutive hours. The recordings survived all these years and long-time contributor Russ Horton sent the audio file to us several years ago. The original tape was scoped, but John Troll of the New York Radio Message Board has started restoring these historic recordings and has sent us the portion where Tommy Shannon fills in for Russ Syracuse. Enjoy!
It's Tommy Shannon on WKBW from July 25, 1961, Pt. 1 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
