Listen To This WPGC Aircheck


'Good Guys Prizes In All Sizes.....'

Good Guy Marv Brooks joined WPGC in 1964 from WPAC Patchogue, Long lsland, New York, (also on 1580!). By the time of this aircheck, Marv was the Production Director and pulled Saturday & Sunday nights on the air.

With the AM already signed off at dusk, this aircheck was recorded off the FM. The lack of compression on the FM audio chain is noticeable.

The 'Much More Music' wars were well underway as evidenced by an '18 songs in the last hour' promo heard going into the latest programming innovation of the time, a 'Triple Play' with no commercial interruption!

This tape is full of station promos illustrating how active the station was at the time with a seemingly endless slew of contests, promotions, etc., among them:

- The 'Music Explosion' voiced by Program Director and afternoon man, Cousin Duffy.

- 'Captain Good Guy' Birthday Club featuring General Manager, Bob Howard.

- Win a call from your favorite Monkee contest with Cousin Duffy.

- WPGC's GO Magazine - Cousin Duffy & morning man, Harv Moore.

- An April's Fools Day promo with Cousin Duffy & Harv Moore.

- Win a Good Guys sweatshirt with Cousin Duffy & Harv Moore.

- Musical Flight 1580, featuring an unknown female talent.

- Playboy Club promo with Cousin Duffy & Harv Moore again.


Other things to listen for:

- A 'Soundoff' featuring General Manager, Bob Howard on noisy construction.

- A 'School Salute' featuring Marv Brooks and a high school student.

- A spot for Heishman Porsche done by Harv Moore.

- Jingles were from a package ordered the year before from Spot Productions of Dallas called 'Funtastic'.
