The following two links are to outside websites, and you will leave this site when you navigate to them.

To hear an edited composite aircheck of WAKE, WPLO, and WQXI that I recorded my first time in Atlanta in 1962, be sure to check out my collection at Uncle Ricky's The Reel Top 40 Radio Repository .  After listening, read the
Comments
for the exhibit which offer further insight into the stations and personalities by visitors to the site.  Then go to The Repository home page where you will find access to many other vintage airchecks of Atlanta radio by typing "WQXI" and "WAKE" into the search box provided.  You might also consider making a monetary contribution to ReelRadio if you feel it to be a worthwhile thing; information can be found on the home page.  There's more than 1000 selections of stations from all across the USA and beyond online for your listening enjoyment.  ReelRadio is a labor of love for Richard Irwin, and it is a non-profit museum.  It's also high maintenance and high expense and can only continue to exist through the generosity and support of people like you and me.  
Of absorbing interest is John Long's story "Puttin' on the Hits" in which he recounts his days as a record promo man, dj, and program director.  There's lots of "Atlanta stuff" here.  Get an inside line on the stations and some of the people he knew and worked with across the country.  Very personal, very honest, and John doesn't mince words.
