Edition #886 May 22, 2016 YVONNE DANIELS WLS CHICAGO JULY 12, 1975 (UNSCOPED)
The First Lady of Chicago Radio was first in the hearts of many.
Yvonne Daniels took over as the WLS all-night shift in 1973 and kept on rockin' for the next nine years. Daniels held down the 2-6 a.m. shift but had a large audience thanks to the massive 50,000-watt signal that reached from the Rocky Mountains to the east coast, and from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. This aircheck captures Daniels two years into her nearly decade-long WLS run as the station's first female jock. Musicradio 89 never sounded better.
