December 11, 1981 starting at about 2:48pm on this Friday afternoon, Mark Parenteau, one of the best FM voices in my opinion, is broadcasting on WBCN, 104.1 FM in the pre-Christmas weeks before the holiday. Lots of local ads, especially for Lechmere's (department store) record department, Tweeter stereo stores, Strawberries records, and New England Telephone (a 5 minute call to Greece is only $6.75!).
Recorded off-air onto 2 sides of a cassette tape with a brief gap between the tape side change. The quality is pretty good. Mark is taking requests, and the diversity of the music is wide reaching, wish there was a station around today (June 2020) that matched this format.
There is a full newscast from Steve Sign? Sine? Cyne? Mark says the name twice and newsman Steve says it once, and I still cannot catch the name, and googling turns up nothing to help me... do you know?
Mark Parenteau died after a long illness at the age of 66 in 2016.
I do not own the copyright on this material but present this historic audio exhibit as a living museum piece for everyone to enjoy exactly as heard over the airwaves 39 years ago.
