Full Day Composite – 1974

Just discovered in a box of tapes that Matt at Big Apple Airchecks sent me about 4 years ago…. Here’s an entire broadcast day including Jay Thomas, Dick Sloan, Steve “Smokin’” Weed, Paulie and MORE!

All the jocks you remember most, from the station that did it’s best to emulate the REST of RKO General – 99x!

Special Appearance: Elton John AKA “EJ the DJ” with Lee Douglas | 1974 (1:02:22) Scoped

In 1974, 99X welcomed a special guest DJ – Elton John. Apparently EJ the DJ was in the habit of appearing at various radio stations to do this. His lifelong ambition? Perhaps.

This is an absolutely hilarious aircheck. The jock on duty, Lee Douglas, does his best to maintain control – but once Sir Elton John arrives, things quickly disintegrate into one liners about drag queens and other … well you just have to consider the source.

It’s ‘clean’ radio by today’s standards, but the innuendos were VERY edgy for their day. And one wonders why folks like Steve “Smokin’ Weed populated the WXLO studios in the mid-70s. The ‘alphabet’ station had serious competition!
