A MCRFB Note: According to contributor Dan Murphy, Dave Milan was one of the lesser-known WJBK DJ’s, inasmuch that “he was a utility, on-air filler, having done voice-overs and production work” while at the station as well.

In 1963, Dave Milan also had his regular Sunday afternoon shows on WJBK, this recording represents one of them.

This aircheck was personally recorded by Dan Murphy, 55-years ago.

These were the record singles you bought in the Motor City in December 1963, according to WJBK. Many went on to become the most popular radio airplays heard on AM radio, also on Top 40 WXYZ and CKLW, and conservative album-oriented, easy-listening WJR  radio.
