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...

This an aircheck of WBCN Boston, one of the best radio stations ever to exist at the time.  WBCN was full service (news, music, information, and live 24/7).  The Rock of Boston. BONUS: After posting this aircheck I found an additional 90 minute cassette from earlier this same day (2:35pm-4:05pm) featuring Mark.  The additional aircheck is right HERE . This was recorded over a 3 hour period late afternoon to early evening on 2 sides of 2 cassette tapes.  Even though it was cassettes, the...

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...

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...

Opening day at Fenway Park for the Red Sox vs. the White Sox, Friday, April 10, 1981. Late afternoon on WBCN,  Mark Parenteau's afternoon show on the Rock of Boston.  Mark passed away in 2016 after a long illness, is great to hear such a lively show from 1981.  We pick up Mark at about 4:15pm this late afternoon.  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 TV comedy. This is recorded on two sides of a...

This is one of my favorite radio airchecks that I've recorded over the years.  There's no special occasion spotlighted in this recording,  it's just a good old tape of every day morning drive, 6am to 7:30am of one of the best shows on radio. WBCN FM 104 and The Big Mattress show with Charles Laquidara.  Lots of birthday calls, newscasts and music recorded on Friday morning, October 5, 1984 by me onto 2 sides of a good quality cassette tape, the quality is fairly good for 36 years ago.  This...

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...

This aircheck is an additional tape that I found for WBCN.  This tape features another 90 minutes of Mark Parenteau in his afternoon show, May 17, 1982, approx 2:35-4:05pm.  This compliments the other aircheck I shared a few weeks ago, which can be found  HERE .  (There is a 20 minute gap between the two). WBCN Boston, one of the best radio stations ever to exist at any time.  WBCN was full service (news, music, information, and live 24/7).  The Rock of Boston. This is a great audio...
