Make The Switch

It's August '76 at 15Q...

Charlie Fox is morning drive followed by Ron Baptist, Bob Kaghan, Shotgun Kelley, Kid Curry and The Brothers.

In mid August Chuck Baron joins the team and the station kicks off his tenure via the "Chuck Baron Super Zap Weekend". Bob Kaghan exits as WRJZ is right around the corner and he's tapped to be PD.

6 Charlie Fox
9 Ron Baptist
12 Shotgun Kelley
4 Chuck Baron
8 Kid Curry
11 The Brothers
2 Dave Elrod

Later that month Chuck Baron takes over morning drive with Charlie Fox moving to afternoons.

Moving in to September...Bill Johnson replaces Alan Sneed as one of The Brothers (teaming with Gary Adkins).

WIVK nighttime DJ Suitcase Simpson gets the Q itch and joins the team (10a-1p time slot)...Eddie Beacon is now reading the news in AM drive!

The station has a ton of big names behind the mic during it's less than one year ride, including future WIVK legend Bob Thomas. Here's Bob via The 101 Audio Vault!
