Just a thought for starting a discussion and learning more about various stations around the country. The idea is to briefly list the station you listened to growing up,why you listened and what you remember about it. Could be a DJ, a format, a contest, an artist they broke, anything interesting.
I grew up in the late 60s and early 70s in the suburbs of Cleveland, and while WMMS was certainly at the heart of everything there (I'm sure others will comment on that station if this takes off), the station that influenced me the most was CKLW out of Windsor. Their close proximity to Detroit allowed me to hear all the great Motown acts in their heyday blasting across Lake Erie. I remember DJ Brother Bill Gable as my favorite and news man Byron McGregor, who later had his own hit with a record called, "The Americans". Anyone else want to add to this list?
