Motor City Radio Flashbacks

Where Detroit Radio Plays On

Welcome

January 27th, 2012

 

Welcome to Motor City Radio Flashbacks, the premiere collection of sights and sounds from “the soundtrack of your life”.

Motor City Radio Flashbacks is the offspring of the legendary Detroit Radio Flashbacks website. It is the repository for the most memorable moments we experienced growing up and listening to great Detroit radio. We are in the process of uploading over 31 gigs of airchecks, photos and commentary, the best of the Detroit Radio Flashback site. And we still encourage conversation and contributions.

But we hope to make your experience even better. Our new platform will ultimately be easier to navigate and will display perfectly well on any device.

It will take some time, but we’re on our way to creating the premiere collection of great radio and great memories. Your feedback is always welcome!

    Brian,

    Thank you for dropping by mcrfb.com. In the event you haven’t noticed our featured Aircheck Library, we have numerous WHND airchecks, as with several with Tim Nixon as well.

    Tim Nixon was certainly one of my favorites on Sunday mornings during the era when “All Oldies Honey 560 WHND” reigned supreme here in the Motor City for a string of 18 long years, from 1976 through 1994, before the station, sadly, went silently off the air November 25 of that year.

    I still have my Honey Radio (with the soda-fountain shake logo) light blue windbreaker jacket hanging in my closet in plastic, today, for the most part it has been hanging there since I had first purchased it through WHND producer Tom Knight in 1985.

    Whenever you may find time, we do have as well “the last show” on WHND with Fred “Boogie” Bryan. The complete show, it is four hours of Honey memories on the last day as WHND said its final good byes to the Motor City for good.

    On behalf of George Griggs, Scott Westerman, and mcrfb.com, thanks for dropping by and tell your friends you found us right here for the best in Detroit radio memories!

    What happened to all the sports flashbacks? All the jingles, songs, and stuff about the Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, & Pistons?

    • George Griggs says on: October 2, 2012 at 6:05 PM

       

      We are working on putting them on. The site is still not all the way up. I hope to be adding all that in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for asking.

    Did Tom Shannon work at WKBW in Buffalo in the 60’s?

    • Jim Feliciano says on: April 27, 2013 at 8:18 PM

       

      Hi Betty —
      Tom Shanon was at WKBD in Buffalo, New York. He started there in 1957. He arrived here in Detroit, coming over at CKLW across the river in Windsor, Ontario in December, 1964.

      Thanks for dropping in on us here at MCRFB.

    Gents,

    You seem to be on key with radio. Can you help me identify the song after the ID jingle at the beginning of this aircheck of CKLW’s Big Jim Edwards from November 1967.

    I know it but I just cannot place it.

    Thanks!

    Hello to my fellow Detroit radio fans, The site is AMAZING. I really like what it’s become. You can spend years navigating all of the wonderful Detroit memories. This city was and is really something. The 1962 aircheck labeled Fred Wolf is actually Paul Winter. This is the unscoped 30 minute tape. I know for sure because this came from the old Aircheck Factory through myself. It’s a great piece of 1962. Take care, Larry Mischel

    OMG this is wonderful! Love the WABX aircheck; hope you have more from that era.
