- 20th Anniversary Edition - PAT PATTERSON "THE FAT CAT" WCOP BOSTON OCTOBER 25, 1961
Twenty years online - and what a long and strange journey it's been.
We were introduced to this new-fangled thing called the Internet in July 1996. Almost immediately we were fascinated by the fact one could set up a "web site" that could be seen around the world. So we gathered up all the radio "notes" we'd made over the years (at the suggestion of our friend Dan Haber) and Rock Radio Scrapbook was born on October 29, 1996. It has been a tremendous experience, we've made many friends, and heard some great radio! We hope you continue to enjoy the tremendous airchecks our dedicated band of contributors have donated to the site, free for the clicking as always. Lots more to come. Stay tuned!
To help celebrate our 20th anniversary, let's enjoy a namesake jock - Pat Patterson "The Fat Cat" - on WCOP Boston from October 25, 1961 ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
Thanks to Don Shuttleworth for
this great aircheck!
