() For the last 25 years, Fox has been meteorologist at WTNH-TV New Haven, but back in the late 70's, he was jocking at WPEN in Philadelphia.WPEN was a significant force in those days, known as great sounding adult contemporary station.He was "Mc Dougall in the Morning" at WTRY from 1980-85, and Sky Stewart at WFEA. Jim Nettleton's body of work includes gigs at WFIL and WABC - and while at WABC, he voice tracked at WCAU-FM.Besides Nettleton who is always sounds professional and smooth, this station was TIGHT.It's also great to hear a teletype behind the newcast.

For me, moments like those made him a joy to listen to. The second part features more 'BZ, WRKO-FM, WMEX and WROR. "WMEX plays hit number 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1-1-1-1..." - very cool! Throughout the years, Mc Dougall used several names. () We love getting airchecks from the great state of PA!
They were a great sounding tightly formatted AC station.
They simulcasted with their AM, which was actually 940, licensed to Brookfield, CT.
() Even though Brindle ended up as Assistant PD to Bob Pittman, he was saying goodbye to New York on the aircheck from 8/29/77.
On 9/1/77, Pittman took over as PD with a whole new cast, including replacing Don Imus with Ellie Dylan, and also hiring Allen Beebe, Johnny Dark and Lee Masters. () This great sounding aircheck of WTIC was recorded 9/30/91.
