Listen To This WPGC Aircheck


Top 100 of 1966

In this brief excerpt, 'JA the DJ' (Good Guy Jack Alix) can be heard counting down the top nine songs of 1966 on January 1st, 1967. Jack had been the night guy at crosstown competitor WEAM in Arlington before coming over the WPGC in 1966.

This aircheck was most likely recorded off the air from the FM (which was 100% simulcast with the AM). At the end of the tape as the AM (daytimer) sign off occurs, you'll hear Jack urge listeners to 'switch over now' to the FM. Years later, DC would become the first FM dominant market in the country, due in no small measure to WPGC's longtime effort to convert cume over to the FM.

Other things to listen for:

- The 'Good Guys' New Year's Greeting (Harv Moore, 'Tiger' Bob Raleigh (Bill Miller), Cousin Duffy, Jack Alix & newsguy, Marv Brooks).

- Jack repeatedly refers to the Top 100 list that listeners can mail for. A copy of said mentioned list can be found below.

- Jingles heard throughout the tape are mainly from PAMS, but some were from a package called 'Funtastic' by Spot Productions of Dallas. Jack's Bat-jingle was from a package called 'Thatman' from the same company.

- The March of Dimes teaser promo, voiced by then night guy Bob Raleigh (Bill Miller), touts PM driver & PD 'Cousin Duffy' walking from Dulles Airport in the Virginia suburbs to downtown DC. The event coincided with a major blizzard but went off anyway.

- Morning man, Harv Moore ('the boy next door') is the voice on the Free State Cycle spot.

- Jack's weekly gig at a local club featured the 'English Setters', a local band of renown in the Metro area. His promo coincided with a New Year's night dance there.
