Listen To This WPGC Aircheck


Hear the full length, unscoped version of this tape at here.

Davy Jones came to WPGC in 1968 by way of WBZ / Boston and held down nights through 1972 when he left for WMAL-FM. He was also the station's Music Director during this time and co-produced the Rockumentary, 'The Rock & Roll Generation' with big Wilson. Today he is with Read Street Sound in Baltimore.

Davy usually was heard at night on WPGC but on this particular day was pressed into service filling in during Bob Raleigh Jr.'s (Dewitt Robert Raleigh) midday shift due to a severe case of the flu disabling most of the on air personalities.

Though Davy is heard on the opening newscast of this tape, it's the Morning Mayor, Harv Moore that's heard doing the news later, again due to morning News Guy, Bob Raleigh Sr. (Bill Miller) being out sick.

'Mr. Soundoff' (General Manager, Bob Howard) however was his bombastic self on a Soundoff from a listener complaining about lackluster George Washington Birthday sales in DC.

Davy is heard with afternoon guy and Program Director, 'big' Wilson on a promo for the 'Good Guys Prom & Party Line', a side venture run by members of the airstaff to line up outside gigs to supplement their income. A disagreement between those two as to the disbursement of funds raised from that venture ultimately resulted in Davy leaving the station in early 1972 for mornings at WMAL-FM.

Most of the commercials heard on this aircheck are agency produced. Horn man, Al Hirt is heard on the Miller High Life spot while Johnny Cash is featured on the one touting the motion picture based on his life, 'The Man, His World, His Music'. Don't miss the bubble-headed Earth-chick for Kinney Shoes or the Super Groovy Singers that are heard on the out of this world Tang spot!

Both the Bob Raleighs (Bill Miller as 'Bob Raleigh Sr.' & Dewitt Robert Raleigh as 'Bob Raleigh Jr.') are heard on local commercials on this tape. The idea of them being related as father & son had been concocted by General Manager, Bob Howard. 'Jr.' is the voice of the Ranch Drive In Theater while 'Sr.' is featured on Grandma's Molasses and Foley Ford doing an unnamed character voice that would later be used in 1972 as the voice of 'Dr. Strangeletter' who stole the 'W' from 'PGC' in the return of the Missing W contest.

The versatile Mr. Miller is also the voice on the Legal ID plus the Request-o-matic and Best Bet of the Week stagers.
