KAAY - Bob Robbins 1st day on May 8, 1972 Part 1

Bob Robbins began his Little Rock radio career at KAAY when his friend Wayne Moss hired him to do the early afternoon shift starting May 8, 1972.   You may have already heard part of this show, as one hour of it was posted on this blog about a year ago.  But I don't think anybody here at the Blog realized it was Bob's first day at the Big K.  Now, we know, and we have the entire show from the Wayne Moss Collection #2.

Every jock is a little bit anxious on their first day at a new station, sooo Wayne had some fun with his friend.  As the story goes, Wayne stood in the control room to help Bob out with the start of his first show.  Shortly before Bob cracked open his mic for the first time, Wayne reminded his old friend something along the lines of  “Bob, don't forget you are now on a 50,000 watt station with listeners in several states and probably there's a lot people rolling tapes on your first day!”  NO pressure!

This aircheck is untelescoped with a few blips here and there.  This is part 1, from 12:30pm to 1:13pm.
