One of the guys featured in one of the other videos in that series, Jeff Lane, is now a magistrate in Logan County.

Reminds me of WCAK, except the floor wasn't bowed and the ceiling wasn't caving in.

Good stuff.
Loved Pappa Jay, back in the day.

BTW, Wayne Price still does trading post every weekday on his station, WZAC 92.5 in Danville.......wish I had some audio to post of the stuff that I have heard on his "trading post"......really good stuff , to say the least.
Also, I am thinking that it was Wayne that bought 1450, then eventually let it go dark.

Exactly!! The WCAK production "suite" LOL, was all Sparta, and identical to the setup in the WWBB video. The board, turntables, and furniture was sold by Sparta as an integrated production "solution".

WCAK's main board was the A-20B, the production board was the A-15B. ANd who could forget those wonderful cart machines!!

Obviously no direct promotion from Columbia Records, seeing as how that was a "store bought" copy of something laying in the background and not a Promo 45...

Here’s my story about that air check. Tim Miller was doing an aircheck of the news and my friend, Steve Cantrell, and I (Jeff Lane) were there as new trainees. I was 16 years old at the time. Tim told us that we could stay and watch, listen and learn. So we were paying close attention to him as he read this news story. In the story about the plane crash, this is what he reads:

”…Killed in the accident were the 42 year old Brady, his 40 year old wife Betty, their 19 year old daughter Debbie, her 18 year old husband Eddie and their 16 year old son… Jennifer!”

Then the hilarity ensued! WWBB radio was in a single-wide trailer at the time. I ran out of the studio and took a quick left into the bathroom where the news machine was kept. Steve ran down the hall into the front office. That Tim somehow composed himself, corrected the mistake (“Excuse me, that was her 16 year old daughter, Diane and her four-month-old daughter, Jennifer”) and went on with his newscast still amazes me. You can hear me laughing in the background and it is still one of the funniest things I ever heard and was somewhat of a participant to. I took over Tim's shift when he went to Marshall that fall.

Tim worked for WSAZ, several radio stations, worked in Marshall University’s Medical Television department, and now works producing Kroger TV spots in the Dayton market. You can find him on facebook here!
