AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Now in both Real Audio and MP3
Edition #930 March 26, 2017 JIM SCOTT WYSL-FM Buffalo, N.Y. April 1, 1976
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.
