. . . How did they get a square to represent a triangle? . . .[Description by contributor Greg Barman]
Chuck Williams was one of those "what will he say next" kind of jocks, and you can judge the results for yourself on this aircheck taken on a Saturday night in August 1971. Maybe Chuck just wanted to be somewhere else that night San Francisco, perhaps?
Chuck was also known as Chuck McKay on CKLW and in 1975 turned in a classic performance that got him fired.
This covers 10:08pm to 11:19 pm, with just one set missing. The voice on the Triangle concert spots is Larry Lujack. Over the intro of the Grass Roots' "Sooner or Later" you'll hear a "sing-over jingle", supposedly designed to burn the station's call letters into your brain even if you hear the song on another station. And, catch the Chicago Tribune spot touting their series on youth theft "how he steals food for his hippie commune" and "the best things in life are free, if you steal them from the bourgeoisie". Ha! Shades of the counterculture. . .
I love airchecks from the early 70's WLS. This was a peak time for the station, before WCFL came seriously gunning at them again. The music mix of that time, combined with those rich acappella PAMS jingles, are real favorites for me.
