PD Profile: WLAV, Grand Rapids Michigan, 1973 (09:00)
. . . She's not a tired female reporter . . .
This profile of WLAV in Grand Rapids, Michigan appeared on Volume 1, Issue 18 of Programmer's Digest, dated July 2, 1973.
Larry Ryan of KEEL in Shreveport, LA. introduces Bob Hamilton (the one who looked a bit like Bill Gates) and Hamilton introduces his newsGIRL and his manly staff of Top 40 DJ dudes.
As you will hear, the technical staff at Programmer's Digest never worried about tape head alignment and what happens to misaligned two-track tapes when they are hard mixed to mono.
But what a trip it was to get these recordings of far-away radio stations in 1973! Even today, we may never have heard of this station, were it not for the efforts of Buddy Blake, publisher of Programmer's Digest.
