Jim Stewart, WNOE New Orleans LA October 1972 (16:08)

[Description by Uncle Ricky. Contributed by Jay Bermo]
This is a recording of Jim Stewart as heard on WNOE in New Orleans on October 23, 1972. But this is one of the most unusual airchecks of the period in the Repository. It's definitely a Top 40 station, with a broad variety of music, and modified PAMS Solid Rock jingles. Personality is the high point here, and Stewart is the off-centerpiece - cynical, goofy and unpredictable.
The original contribution was heavily edited, though I did smooth the ClACK-Pwipp edits into gentle mixes. Too bad the noise level was so high, and that the recording had been previously processed for "noise reduction" - otherwise, the content is far superior to the fidelity.
Technical issues aside, I kept wishing Stewart didn't have ANY format to follow OR that the PD would get some good jingles, a real news intro, and give Stewart a format to follow! Jim Stewart and his wife have been living in Houston, Texas, since 1988.
