1982~ where were you?

It's early 1982...

WIVK-AM 850 was separated from the FM and the DJ line up for the daytime only signal was CP and Walker 6-10, Becky Lynn 10-3, and Dan Bell at 3p! The catch phrase was "you can hear the difference".

The FM side at WIVK was 6-10 Claude Tomlinson, 10-3 Bob Thomas, 3-7 Ed Brantley, 7-12 Mickey Dearstone, and 12-6 Terry Womack.

WNOX 990 featured Phil Williams 6-10, Jim Donovan 10-3, Bill Evans 3-7, Jeff Shannon 7-12, and James Maurice 12-6.

The UT basketball starters were Steve Ray and Dale Ellis at forward, Willie Burton was center, Michael Brooks and Tyrone Beaman started at guard. Don DeVoe was the head ball coach.

The news team at WRJZ included David Henley, Ernie Baker, and Brad Schulz.

In Oak Ridge at Q94 the team featured Dan King in the morning, Arch Bishop middays, and Tony Eubanks in the afternoon.

In April WNOX went country and became AM 99 Proud Country...Rick Kirk, Scott Majors, and Your Dave were the DJs.

...and that's a look back at early '82! Where were you?
