WAKY Composite Airchecks

On this page you'll find several WAKY composites...that is, airchecks of more than one personality. Most of the composites were made at WAKY, while the rest were assembled by us. 

This quickie WAKY composite from October of 1971 has breaks from Bill Bailey, Cris Lundy,

In early 1972, WAKY Production Director Mike Griffin was asked to put together a WKLO-WAKY comparison for the LIN Broadcasting home office. This unnarrated composite -- which was re-edited and remixed in 2005 -- features a daypart-by-daypart look at Louisville's two great Top 40 stations. The WKLO lineup included Lee Gray, Mark Elliot, Chuck Brady, Brother Bill Love, Jonathon Stone and J.J. Wright. The WAKY team features Bill Bailey with Reed Yadon, Cris Lundy, Johnny Randolph, Gary Burbank, Jason O'Brian and Mason Lee Dixon.
