Hi Scott:

Our teen years, growing up in the mid-west wouldn’t have been the same without the Big 89-WLS.  So many memories, fondly reflected and re-lived, just by viewing your site.  You have assembled so much information and displayed it in an excellent and organized fashion. Thank You!!

Actually I happened upon your site while searching for a source from which I can purchase bits of WLS history.  I’m looking for a vendor who has available recordings from 1967-70.  I’m interested in the Fri/Sat shows, say from 8pm – 2am, when all the top hits of that time were played.  Tunes that we listened to while crusing the strips.  Also, looking for the year end count downs of the same years.  Its seems these recordings from one of the Country’s greatest stations would be available from someone…somewhere.  I would think there would be a wide market for such tapes.  Any help, or direction you can give me would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!

Again, you have a remarkable site…..well done!!

Pete, a great place to start is Uncle Ricky’s Radio Repository! (  If you are looking for something more portable, I’d suggest hooking up with some of the many aircheck traders on the internet or eBay.  Most of them are very cordial to deal with, although most prefer trades over purchases.   ~Scott
