It's opening day at Fenway Park for the Red Sox vs. the White Sox, Friday, April 10, 1981. A wonderful spring morning to tune in Charles Laquidara's Big Mattress show on the Rock of Boston, WBCN 104.
We pick up Charles at a little after 8am, this aircheck continues for an hour and a half, featuring the news of the day, great music, and a real bonus of some old-time comedy.
Originally recorded on two sides of a cassette tape, 45 minutes per side, the quality is fairly good. Recorded off-air with all program elements intact, this is a "living museum" historic piece for everyone to enjoy exactly as heard over the airwaves 39 years ago. Music, news, commercials, personalities are all here.
There is another WBCN aircheck from this same date, recorded later in the afternoon with Mark Parenteau, you can find that aircheck right HERE.
