Aircheck: WMMS in 1987

Thanks to Cleveland radio personality Java Joel (a fellow aircheck and radio aficionado) for passing this my way via Twitter.  I'll now share it with you, 45 minutes of unscoped audio from WMMS and the Buzzard Morning Zoo circa 1987.

If you haven't checked out John Gorman's Buzzard Book Blog, you'll find lots more Buzzard related audio/video goodies over there for your pleasure and enjoyment.  John's blog has sadly been a bit dormant in recent times, but there's a good reason for that - he's been pretty busy lately.

As my pal John Hannibal notes, putting your ears around Gorman's latest project V107.3 is very much worth your time - where else are you going to hear new music from Crowded House on the radio?  Even though I'm primarily an album/iPod listening kinda guy these days, it's nice that we have an outlet in this city playing new music from artists that aren't named Linkin Park, Godsmack and Papa Roach.  That's not a slam on the outlets here in town playing music from bands like that - it's simply that I've been hoping for a long time that we might get a radio station along the lines of Chicago's WXRT here in Cleveland.

Those of you living in Chicago can argue how much WXRT sucks now and perhaps that's true for longtime fans of the radio station, but if you listen to WXRT today, it's still better than 98 percent of what's on the radio in every other city. So yeah, V107.3 is some good listening - kudos to Gorman, Rocco and all of the folks doing good things over there.

I guess we got off on a bit of a rant just then, so to bring us back to the subject matter - enjoy the audio above, enjoy the blog and if you're looking for some more material after that, you might want to give the book below a spin.
