No music more often! But please remember that we pay bandwidth and hardware costs for anything streamed from REELRADIO. (Complimentary Scoping by Uncle Ricky.)
Actually, it's One Hour, Nineteen Minutes and 30 seconds (01:19:30) and a great chance to hear John Landecker a few days before his finale at WLS. A few spots and traffic reports have been edited, and there's a break for tape change, but most of this unscoped slice of Americana AM is intact. Here's why people used to listen to music on AM radio, even when the music sounded better on FM.

J.D. says to listen for the Fewer Commercials seque, Frankie & The Knockouts, WLS Jingles and the Touch Tone, among other highlights on this very cool aircheck.
