It's the fall of 1978...I'm a student at UT and a weekend DJ at WIVK. Where were you?
Other weekend warriors at 850/107.7 were Bob Thomas, Suitcase Simpson, and Arch Bishop.
Joe Grant joined WIVK at that time...he had previously worked at WCOR Lebanon, WSSO in Starkville, WROL Ktown, and WBNT Oneida. This was Joe's second stop at WIVK having been in sales and on in the air in 1971.
Big movies that fall included Animal House and Grease!
In Oak Ridge Clyde Scott Jr. took over as PD at WATO.
WBIR-FM was playing country and featured James Freeman, Bill Page and Mark Mabry.
Chris Gallu was named GM at WNOX 990, after Pete Dreyer held that position for years. Shortly thereafter Bob Savage arrived as PD from WKTQ in Pittsburgh.
WKGN was AOR at the time, the DJ line up was 6-10 Kelly Stevens, 10-3 Frank Greene, 3-7 Keith Lambert, 7-12 Jennifer, and 12-6 Rick Long.
The 101 Audio Vault features Mark Mabry...
