[Description by Uncle Ricky. Exhibit contributed by Andy Bologovsky]
Part Six of this Extended-Play CKLW Logger Tape was recorded on the last day of 1973, from 7:34 until 8:54 AM. It features more of the "Grand Daddy of Rock", the inimitable Mickey Shorr, filling in for Detroit radio veteran Dave Shafer. Shorr, who started working radio jobs in the 1950's at the age of 14, dropped out of high school for an overnight radio show called Corn 'til Morn. He owned a chain of Detroit-area mobile electronics stores that he founded in 1967. Shorr passed away in 1980.
New Year's Eve notwithstanding, the Big 8 news department was open for business. 20/20 news features Byron MacGregor and Jon Belmont.
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.
