“MARK’S GROOVY AIRCHECKS”-KCBQ, San Diego, CA-February 28, 1976-”KCBQ Becomes A Thing Of The Past”

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

"KCBQ Becomes A Thing Of The Past" was the classic "play on words" created by Gerry Cagle.  The build-up made the listeners think the station was history, as in "going away", as the lead-in to the announcement by Mason Dixon led us to believe.  Actually, it became more of a celebration of the past promotions that were a part of KCBQ, including "The Great Rip-Off", "Keep On Truckin'" and "The Last Contest".  This piece features airchecks from those classic promotions.

“MARK’S GROOVY AIRCHECKS”-John “Records” Landecker-WLS, Chicago-July 24, 1978

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

This "Groovy Aircheck" was recorded in a hotel room in Kankakee, Illinois during a cross-country trip on July 24, 1978.  It's John "Records" Landecker ("Records" is truly his middle name) on WLS in Chicago.  Be sure and check out the 2nd Boogie Check.  It seems that the engineer-on-duty didn't know about the "bleep button" ("Hope we got some ratings points for it 'cause I think I just lost my gig!").

"Mark's Groovy Trip" loves the music of the '70s and we're guessing you do, too!    That's why we're taking a "Groovy Trip" back to 1972 and with the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs starting our Theme Hour is all about "Hockey".
