Listen To This WPGC Aircheck


Lee Logan was a nighttime legend, spending four years at WQXI, Atlanta before heading to Miami for stints with 96X and Zeta 4. In 1978 he was named Program Director of WIFE in Indianapolis. He joined WPGC for late nights in January 1979.

In the summer of that year, he was named Program Director of WPGC's new sister station in Houston, KFMK. From there he went on the program another First Media station, US 99 in Chicago. He later went on to other programming positions on the West Coast, notably at KLAC, Los Angeles and KSAN / KNEW in San Francisco. Today, he is a consultant with Shane Media in Houston.

Memorial Day Weekend 1979 was just a few days off at the time of this aircheck. Contesting consisted of ticket giveaways to see Pablo Cruise at King's Dominion over the holiday. Other promotional activity included the 'Washington's Best' contest in which the station searched for DC's best looking guy & gal who were each awarded $1,000 in conjunction with the Capital Centre's 'Summer Fun Celebration'.

Mechanically, the station had introduced cold segues between two songs without any identifying element in between them the year before. Station positioning statements in use included, 'WPGC Stereo 95' (when the AM was off the air after dusk). The 'Positron' jingles from JAM from the year before were noticeably absent by Summer 1979 outside of the morning show. Speaking of which, Jim Elliott & Scott Woodside had been together for not quite a year at this stage and were now billed jointly as 'Elliott & Woodside'.

Midday guy (and future WPGC morning man) Dave Foxx is heard on a Soundoff about oil prices. Since the Great Strike That Struck Out in May of 1977, listeners' gripes about seemingly anything had been read on the air by the DJs as well as Public Service Director, Sherry Berger. 'Mr. Soundoff', former General Manager, Bob Howard had left the station when it was sold in 1974 and proceeded to take long time morning man, Harv Moore with him to Buffalo.

The Washington Bullets had won the NBA championship the year before and were back in the playoffs again this year. You'll hear a brief portion of Nils Lofgren's tribute, 'Bullets Fever' even though the team had lost their game that night.

Special thanks to Matt Craig of Big Apple for the above.
