Listen To This WPGC Aircheck


Tim Kelly joined WPGC from WCFL / Chicago in early 1976 for mornings after Columbus left for WLS. He stayed until The Great Strike That Struck Out in May of 1977.

This aircheck starts with the awarding of a Datsun 280Z and $3,000 in the '3G's & a 'Z' contest. (The correct guess as to the car's mileage was 311 miles).

Bill Miller used the 'Bob Raleigh' house DJ name longer than anyone else in WPGC's history. Starting as the night jock in 1966 when he joined the station from KOIL in Omaha, he moved into morning news in 1968 and doubled as the station's Production Director.

Hence his voice was heard all over the station for a longer period of time than anyone else, other than former morning man, Harv Moore. Listen for his superb production on a concert spot for artists including the Doobie Brothers, the Marshall Tucker Band, Heart, Neil Diamond and Mary Travers at the end of the tape.

Jingles in use at the time were from JAM's 'Logoset' & 'Priority One' packages. Positioners of the day included 'Musicradio' & 'WPGC Stereo 95 & 1580 AM'.

In the crosstalk between Tim & Bob are heard lighter side stories including one about a runaway steer on the National Mall. Also heard is a story of a mysterious plague in Philadelphia which we now know as Legionnaire's Disease.

Tim Kelly met WPGC Money Girl, Evelyn while they worked together in Denver. The on-air duo became a real life duo and were married not long after leaving WPGC (they also worked on the air together at KFI). Long before the advent of cell phones, she calls in using a radiotelephone as she patrols Metro Washington in search of WPGC bumperstickers to award a lucky listener with a $100 bill.
