ABOUT THIS WHFI AIRCHECK

___

Tom Clay’s Detroit radio resume lists the legendary jock having been on WJBK, WQTE, CKLW and WWWW. But we cannot find any indication he was ever on WHFI.

So, was he? We can only speculate, as this WHFI aircheck bears supporting, possibly he was there for a very brief period of time (days? weeks maybe?) — either sometime late-1969 or earlier-1970. By late summer, 1970, Tom Clay was on WWWW-FM.

Regardless, we present today an extremely rare aircheck find, thanks to Bob Pratt, who recorded it (again, no date). It’s Tom Clay on 94.7 FM WHFI.
