. . . this one is so heavy no one can lift it on to the turntable . . .
[Description by Uncle Ricky]
Very limited fidelity, so the 'scoped version of this otherwise abundant aircheck of the inimitable Joey Reynolds is recommended. You'll get all the original Joey on WDRC, and it's a great 16 minutes. But you might not want to miss the full Joey Reynolds Show jingle on the unscoped version. (He plays it with no talkover.)
Several clues suggest that Reynolds was "filling in" here, and not the regular host (from 10PM-2AM?) in 1969. He presents an interpretation of his Jack Armstrong weather, and includes a shot at Cousin Brucie. In this hour, he also has extended, one-on-one conversations with two listeners, one "on the skip" from faraway Syracuse, NY. He also introduces news headlines as the "funny stuff", and offers a commentary on "mainlining peanut butter", and glue sniffing vs. marijuana smoking. And despite all the extra elements, he doesn't neglect his DJ duties.
There's a sense of "that was then" from this aircheck. Reynolds melds the music with current events and real people on the phone. The music is Top 40, but the "format" is The Joey Reynolds Format.
