Rick Shaw, WQAM Miami FL September 22 1964 (39:25)
. . . I think we can safely say we got her where we want her . . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky]
This somewhat thin, scratchy and crosstalk-challenged aircheck of the great Rick Shaw on Miami's WQAM is a true 'scoped classic, and the music has been restored. It's from an Hour of Solid Gold, though most of the "oldies" aren't that old.
Roby Yonge appears with a brief news headline, along with lots of young ladies requesting their favorite "oldies." All the famous Storz gimmicks are here, the oil-dampened reverb, extra reverb on demand, and a wide variety of PAMS jingles. They use both the Yours Truly and Wonderful signatures on this recording.
There's also a truncated high school football report, and an absolutely WILD spot for Trader Johns, including lots of screaming about GIRLS! They swing live until five. Meanwhile, fellow Tiger Lee Vogel has won a Peabody Award.
Rick Shaw passed away on September 22, 2017. He was 78.
