. . . Just because I take an upper in the morning, and a downer at night, my husband thinks I'm a drug addict . . .

[Description by contributor Jerry Clegg]

This WRPL (1540) aircheck is from 1972, during one of the many incarnations we tried to make it work. I'm first, just trying to keep up with these guys:

Gil Stamper, the respected former WBT/WBTV personality with news. Gil beat me into work every morning — even when it snowed. A real pro!
Bill Denton blew into town, I don't know from where, and blew out the same way.
Larry Lawrence aka Larry Sprinkle of Murphy In The Morning (WAYS) fame and "The Tidy Bowl Man", has been a Charlotte NBC-TV weatherman for years.
George Brown was the man behind the format. George was also PD for WIST, Charlotte; WMPS (Plough Broadcasting, Memphis), and WSJS, Winston-Salem. George was one of the best PDs in the business.
