Johnny Williams, CKLW Logger December 31, 1973 Pt. 7 (01:17:23)
. . . this is Johnny Williams with my blue swede shoes on . . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky. Exhibit contributed by Andy Bologovsky]
Part Seven of this Extended-Play CKLW Logger Tape opens with Jon Belmont and news. It was recorded on the last day of 1973, from about 8:55 AM until approximately 10:15 AM. The first set after the news belongs to Mickey Shorr, who signs off and out of this remarkable logger archive.
And then, Johnny Williams takes over. He is exactly what we expected from first-drawer CKLW jocks - tight, in-control, boss with just a little jive. He pumps the call letters and gets into the music in this exhibit.
This recording, like the previous CKLW Logger Tapes presented in The Andy Bologovsky Collection was recovered from the original logger reels by restorian Charlie Ritenburg. The fidelity is comparable to a recording made from a narrow-band AM receiver in the local signal area of the mighty CKLW.
