"Ladies and gentlemen (boooom!), Wayne Moss!"
This aircheck was made on April 1, 1974. We didn't want to wait till April to post this one, so here it is in wintry January, but maybe it will get you in the mood for spring!
Here's Greg Barman's commentary about the material: "10:10am-11:20am. Telescoped, though a lot of music left in. KAAY promotes their big power on this aircheck a lot, like the increment-weather promo: 'our 50,000 watt signal will reach out in the increment weather and keep you appraised.' There's a promo for Beaker Street with Don Marcus and a sing-over jingle over the beginning of Olivia Newton-John's 'If not for you'. Note the spot for a Casio mini-calculator, which cost $19.95 back then! Newsguy is Mitch Michaels.''
April Fool's joke here? No...but maybe so....listen carefully!

This is another tape-to-digital conversion Greg facilitated for us. I must say, Greg's dedication to preserving the audio of our favorite station is stupendous! Thank you, Greg!
Thanks also go to Dave S. for his computer wizardry for archiving and linking for us to enjoy!
And thanks to Wayne Moss for offering his library to us!
