[Description by Uncle Ricky]

Bob Sirott is filling in for Larry Lujack in this capture of the 8AM hour from WLS on June 16, 1977. There's a genuine treat for baseball historians, too.

Save us all from 1977's whiny boy ballads and disco done-thats! That's why there is a 'scoped version. Holy Spots - the WLS morning show, had 'em, for sure. Does anyone doubt that Shaun Cassidy lives a fine and privileged life today? Is there any reason for Alan O'Day to be remembered anywhere, anytime, for any reason? The 'scoped version also reflects a dislike for crummy-sounding network spots on the 5Khz telco connection. Cheap, cheap.

But, thankfully, Linda Marshall and Howard Cosell are certainly ABC O&O highlights. And Jack Swanson sounds good, too. He didn't have anything to do with the music. None of us did. I never understood why Top 40 music had to be so awful in 1977.

Best thing about this aircheck? Check out that smooooth reverb. Just the right level.
