Don Geronimo, WBBM-FM Chicago, Spring 1985 (32:00)
. . . it takes a lot of courage to get up here, and do something you know people will make fun of . . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky]
This uptempo rock 'n' roll composite of Don Geronimo on WBBM-FM really kicks in 64Kbp/s STEREO! It was recorded over several days, and features the opening set and song around 5:37 AM in sometime Spring 1985. There are many Geronimo drop-ins. This is first-class 1985 Contemporary Hit Radio, from the heart of his bottom.
Karen Hand and Mike Elston are nearby, and yes, that's Charlie Van Dyke on the Hit Blitz promos. A few tunes of the time, a classic TV Guide spot, and many more surprises are embedded in this 32 minutes, along with lots of gags, 80's-something memories and energy. Don't miss "General George Manager" around 22:43 - hilarious!
