K-Earth 101, KRTH-FM Los Angeles has always been a long-time top-rated station in Southern California.  This 3+ hour aircheck was recorded on October 13, 1983, on this particular October morning the K-Earth news department featured a very different news feature that had a bit of a throwback to Orson Wells' "War of the Worlds" 1938 Halloween broadcast. KRTH featured a half-hour program that instead of space aliens, the enemy was a simulated 8.3 Earthquake along the San Andres Fault in...

Recorded on a cold January Sunday afternoon, one of those days in North Conway, New Hampshire where you may have just returned back from a day of skiing on the slopes, or snowshoeing some wooded trails.  The sun's setting early this time of year, so maybe it's time for a fire in the woodstove along with some food and beverages.  This is when you flip on the radio for some background entertainment and local radio station WMWV, a local mainstay comes alive with their always eclectic mix of...

K-Earth 101, KRTH-FM Los Angeles has always been a top-rated station over the years.  This aircheck was recorded on July 4th, 1983, when K-Earth featured their Firecracker 300. The top 300 songs of all time were played back as voted by the listeners.  I really do think they honored the voting, since some of the songs are pretty diverse and certainly were not part of their normal playlist, and in a few cases some very long version of the song was played. I recorded these segments onto cassette...

K-Earth 101, KRTH-FM Los Angeles was one of my favorite LA stations. I really enjoyed K-Earth back in the 80's, at the time of this New Years Eve recording, K-Earth was mixing oldies with the latest hits during the week, but on the weekends they still stuck to their very popular oldies only themed weekend formats. (A few years later they would return to full-time oldies). This aircheck was recorded on New Years Eve, December 31, 1982, starting at about 7:30pm right on up till 10 minutes past...

Recorded April 7, 1984 on a Saturday, this is an aircheck of KRTH-FM, Los Angeles, the station was also more commonly known as K-Earth-101. I  recorded this off-air possibly onto reel  to reel, I think, I'm not quite sure: I transferred all my tapes to CD in 2002-3 (both cassette & reel-reel), then  about 2006-7 I ripped those CDs to MP3.  Because this aircheck seems to run for 1hr 35min with no breaks, I'm guessing it was originally recorded on reel to reel.. This is a great audio...

I'm so happy to share this real slice of small town radio from WMWV-FM in North Conway, NH.  I recorded this slice of radio history on a cold Sunday morning, January 21, 1996 starting at the 6am sign-on.   Skip Sherman is our morning host for the Sunday Morning Breakfast Show, a show that features big bands, ballads, jazz and swing along with AP & local news and the morning weather show at 7:50am (find it at 16:00 on Part 3) with a live weather report from the top of Mt Washington, NH...

I'm so happy to share this real slice of small town radio from WMWV-FM in North Conway, NH.  I recorded this slice of radio history on a cold Sunday morning, January 28, 1996 starting just after the news.  I recorded Skip's show two Sundays in a row back in 1996.  I came across this "lost" show recently (after uploading his Jan 21st show a year sgo), But since we lost Skip at a great ripe age of 95 last week (August 5th), he was local legend here in the Mount Washington Valley, so...

This is an aircheck of KRTH-FM, Los Angeles, California recorded off air on June 6, 1983, approx 8:30am-10am onto both sides of a cassette tape by myself. There is a brief gap at the point of original tape change.   Featured radio personalities are Dean Goss and Mary Lyon with news. KRTH was know as K-Earth 101 and in the early 1980s was a driving force in LA Radio, experimenting with the radio format, where they played a mix of current hits and oldies during the week, but on weekends they...
