Loosely related - I would love to find a copy of a radio parody done in the 70's. I heard a 10th generation copy 15+ years ago...someone has to know about it. It was a parody of a southern Ohio radio station - WMPO in Pomeroy. The station's motto in the parody was "there, buddy." I think the name on the tape was Payless Productions but I could be wrong.

The questions to be asked by the DJ were included on an insert with the LP. I also have a reel-to-reel tape from one of Coca-Cola's advertising agencies with different versions of their early 70's radio spots 'Look up America'.

That's not the interview where James Young was asked about "Snowblind" and drug use was it? His answer is still a classic: "Yes, I experimented with drugs once. But the mice came out okay..."

I've got a couple of the old Americas Top 40 shows from around 1974 or so. They are on 12" discs.

I have several of the COKE TIME shows with Eddie Fisher in big discs. I made R to R copies of these when I had access to a transcription player a few years ago. I never was an Eddie fan.

My favorite show was found totally by accident. I bought some old 10" reel to reel tapes and played through them. They are old drive-in movie shows telling me to go to the snack bar and pick up some food and wash it all down with coca cola... with Glenn Yarborough singing "things go better with COKE!" They each run about an hour, and end telling the listeners to enjoy the show, and dont forget to place the speaker on the stand at the end of the show.

This stuff is all buried in this mess I call a collection.

I have the ACC set for the day that my wife and I were married in 1984. Picked it up at a radio station yard sale. I had no idea they were distributed that way until then. My set has the cue sheets as well.

A really great way to remember the occasion! One of my favorite years for music in general.

We actually missed the broadcast because it aired in the afternoon when we were getting married.

I just recently found an Acetate from 1957 of an Oak Park Illinois radio host on WOPA doing a Quiz Show.

[QUOTE=Findm-Keepm;3001423]I've got a Motorola "Message to Shareholders" 45RPM Disc. It's Bob Galvin talking about the state of the Motorola Company in, I believe, 1973. I've owned a similar record from Chrysler where the person speaking (Iacocca?) was talking about the Jeep acquisition. Real fancy leatherette folder for that one. I let it go to a "Jeep" girl I know.

I wonder if Bob Galvin mentioned that they were discontinuing TV manufacturing the next year and selling it to Matsushita.
All I got with my 2006 Jeep Wrangler, was a video tape showing how to lower or remove the top. It also showed Jeep off-roading routines.

This is a lot of radio, kind of like a highlight film but with snippets from Ernie Harwell and Ray Lane in the broadcast booth along with IIRC jingles and some narration:

I have some American Armed Services radio shows on vinyl.

I wish I had some 1970's and 80's AT40 with Casey Kasem.

Thank goodness the show got revived and aired on the radio again after all these years.

I managed to snag a few shows. "The In Sound" was 5 five minute shows on each record. The Army's attempt at being "cool" I suppose. This one was from February, 1968 and featured The Association "Everything That Touches You", The Fifth Dimension "Carpet Man",
Dionne Warwick "Valley Of The Dolls", Lemon Pipers "Green Tambourine" and Marvin Gaye "You".

I have some of FDR's fireside chats on 16" transcription discs, and a bunch of 10" and 12" discs from various California stations from the late 30's to the mid 50's. I also have over 200 reels of taped programs, both with and without commercials, from KPMC in Bakersfield, CA. These were in the station office building when the station was sold and I got them all for the asking as they were about to be thrown away.
