Previously unposted WCWP aircheck February 9, 2009

Posted by Mike C. in Airchecks, Music, Personal, Radio.

Last night, in my boredom, I went to the Musicradio 77 WABC tribute site.  On the homepage was an interview with Joe McCoy, the former program director at WCBS-FM.  In the interview, he reflected on the former WABC personalities he hired at CBS-FM.  Those personalities included Harry Harrison, Ron Lundy, Bruce Morrow (a.k.a. Cousin Brucie), and Dan Ingram.

On the page housing the interview, there was an aircheck of Dan Ingram filling in for Ron Lundy over a three-day period in January 1991.  Reading the interview and listening to the aircheck made me think back to my days at WCWP, and a show I recorded in June 2005.  It was an evergreen show with a Classic Top 40 theme.  I hadn’t listened to it since a month or so after recording it because I was ashamed of how I sounded.  I channeled Ingram and Cousin Brucie at times, but felt I sounded corny and forced.

But I’ll let you, the reader, be the judge.  Here’s the aircheck:
