Listen To This WPGC Aircheck


'Time Tested Radio for the Top Tunes of Today'...

'Gentleman Jim Madison' was a house named used by several different DJs over the years art WPGC. This one was Bob Benson who began doing nights at WPGC in 1966. He is remembered for using the 'It's him, Gentleman Jim' slug line. He previously had worked at WSMB in Waldorf, WHMC in Gaithersburg and WINX in Rockville before joining WPGC. His airshifts were Mondays, Tuesday, Saturdays 6-11PM & Sunday mornings.

The Bat-craze was well underway at the time of this aircheck. Leading off is a thinly disguised Bat-jingle from a package known as 'That-man' from Spot Productions Of Dallas.

Heard here on a weekend morning, the Sunday Spectacular was regular fare for WPGC and featured an Oldie alternating every other song with a current record of the time. Format fragmentation as we know it today simply didn't exist back then. The station's multi-generational appeal allowed it to play the best of the new for teens as well as the best of the old for their parents!

Among those having a birthday on March 6th was a young Skip McCloskey (one day to become a near legend in his own right as one of the founders of the WRC tribute site). It was he who graciously donated this tape to this site!
