Seattle Radio News Sweep ’70 – ’79

Here’s another cavalcade of newscast airchecks, this time from 1970 through 1979. Your contributing editor took a little license by including clips from Spokane and Vancouver, B.C., whose radio signals certainly were (and are) a part of the Pacific Northwest. Again, a lot of familiar memories. There are 19 voices included in 16 different airchecks. It’s next to impossible not remembering where you were and what you were doing when these were on the air. Running time about 5:00.

The rundown in order:
Ken Mattler KOL ’70, Dave Palmer CKLG Vancouver ’70, Ross Woodward KJRB Spokane ’70, Gary Shannon KJR ’71, Don Patrick KTAC Tacoma ’72, Frank Thompson KJR ’72, Jim Davis KING ’73, Steve Alexander KREM Spokane ’74, Larry Sells CKLG Vancouver ’75, Chet Rogers and Gary Lockwood KJR ’76, Nick Alexander KZOK ’77, Gregg Hersholt KJR ’77, Les Parsons and Ichabod Caine KJR ’77, Bill Taylor KVI ’78, Bob Hovanes KZOK ’79, Ron Karolis and Tom Hutyler KJRB Spokane ’79.
