    I lost my only air check (reel to reel box) of my air check when I was on CKLW The Big 8 with Tom Shannon/Bill Gable..Dick Bosey hired me in 1977 for weekends.
    I was on right after Ted Richards…I was one of the 3 Canadians on staff..a dream come true for me back then. How to we add a picture to the Detroit Radio line up?

    And if anyone run across a 12 midnight – 6:am CKLW Big 8 air check of me! I’ll pay any amount for it! I also did New Years Eve on 1078 to 1979.

    Thank you George for your time

    Does anyone have any tapes from the later part of Swing Time to the early days of The Lively Spot”. I was on quite a few of those shows and would like to find some with me on it to show my grandkids! I will pay for a copy if anyone has any.

    Looking for WABX airchecks 1967-1968…..decent condition. I can’t believe that I was one of the few who taped radio shows back in the day….I really did, then, promptly lost all my tapes in a flood, here in Florida in 1996……been looking for substantial amounts of ABX stuff since….not with a great deal of success.

  • Peter Faulkner says on: December 23, 2014 at 10:40 PM

     

    Dr Mad: How did you make out with that request for WABX. I have about three hours on two separate dates from August 1969, Larry Miller I think.

    …. Peter

    I worked with Eddie Rogers at WDRQ FM93 1978-79. He hired me when we were just moving into a brand new building in Southfield. What a fun time in my life. I also worked with Jim Ryan and Don Geronimo. I worked mid days then worked 10-2 at night! What a fun ride. I still have airchecks and if you like I will provide them on the original cassettes and reels. I’m currently retired from radio and live in Portland, Oregon. I also spent time at Tower 92 in Detroit. Dave Preston! Anyone remember me??

    To Whom It May Concern,

    If it would be possible for any more WHND broadcasts, that would be phenomenal, the longer the better. Sorry for a short comment, but my father absolutely loves your old airchecks, he can remember sitting in his hotrod with only AM radio, and listening to that station. But ONLY UNTIL SUNSET!!

    Thanks for the great memories guys, you rock!

    Hi, I would like to see any old clips from the Ed Mckenzie show around 1955-56. My father was in a sing group called the Pebbles from Pershing High. They had a singing competition between them and The Four Tops. I would love to get a copy of it for my dad while he’s still living. It would be exciting to watch it with his grandkids too!

    I’m replying to a comment you made, Dave, about year ago… I hope you’ll still receive this. If you’re the Dave Preston I’m looking for I sure remember you! If so, you and I worked together at WMFJ in Daytona Beach, those many years ago… in ’76 – 78 or so. I was Steve Craig back in those days. And many adventures later, I’m living with my wife Tammy in Southern Pines, NC. Are you that guy with the green VW??? let me know if you get this…..

    I am currently listening to Wayne Kramer (MC5) narrate his new boook “The Hard Stuff” and he talks of being in an adjacent studio recording and looking in an ope door and watching Edwin Starr working on “Stop Her on Sight.” Got me to thinking that Edwin Starr recorded a WKNR promo for Scott Reagan using the same song with different Scott Reagan lyrics. Anyone have that spot?

  • C J Brown says on: January 27, 2019 at 11:04 AM

     

    Still looking for Todd Wallace CKLW? I have 30 minutes from Nov 15 1968, Thanks Charlie
