JIM SCOTT
WYSL-FM Buffalo, N.Y.
April 1, 1976

April Fools!

Few stations have celebrated April Fools Day with as much vigour as WYSL-FM did in on April 1, 1976. The Buffalo station devoted the entire day to April Fools Day with phony commercials and ridiculous "picked to clicks." They also appealed to radio nerds everywhere by airing shotgun jingles of out-of-town stations out of every stop set. It's the sort of off-the-wall "fun" thing stations used to do, back when that sort of thing was not only allowed but encouraged.

Enjoy Jim Scott with some April Fools hi-jinks on WYSL-FM from April 1, 1976
(SCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
