Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
JOHNNY BARRETT WKBW Buffalo, N.Y. July 24, 1961 (UNSCOPED, PT. 2)
A very long aircheck is getting longer.
For years, we've hosted the
historic 24 Hours of 'KB aircheck from July 24-25, 1961, as originally
recorded by a radio enthusiast named Paul Carlson from a hotel room in
Buffalo. They were scoped - the music was not included - but in recent years
another radio fan named John Troll has restored the music to these old
airchecks and sent them to us after featuring them on
rewoundradio.com. So sit back and
enjoy the way WKBW sounded 56 summers ago, with the jocks, the jingles and
now the music!
John Troll for providing the restored version of this aircheck, and to Russ
Horton for sending us the original scoped version!
