Jay Stone, WUBE Cincinnati OH. March 28, 1969 (07:25)
. . .
The greatest hits of all time on every Million Dollar Weekend
. . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky]
To the best of my immediate knowledge, this is the ONLY aircheck of Drake-formatted WUBE ever contributed to the Repository. Despite being 'scoped, short, tinny and noisy, it is vitally important history because THIS is the first boss bust, all 250 overnight watts of it.
It is not, however, 100% Johnny Mann. For whatever reason, Jay Stone's jock jingle is NOT a Mann jing, but all the others are.
Was this the same Jay Stone that was later at WXLO-FM in New York and KCBQ in San Diego? Parts of this are difficult to understand, but it sounds like he might have been in good company at 1-2-3/WUBE. Was the Gary Corry in mornings later the Atlanta favorite? Mike Scott was mentioned - the one from KCBQ? And did he say Al Law is doing PM drive later, Al Brady Law? Or, maybe they were just all house names, or maybe my hearing really is shot.
Everyone agrees this facility was woefully underpowered for Cincinnati, but I can't help but wonder if it served as a serious "farm club" for an entire gang of upcoming radio guys.
