The Best of Audio CD Set is delighted to announce our newest CD collection: "The Best of"!

We've lovingly assembled the "crème of the crop" of WAKY airchecks and audio interviews from the archives onto five 79-minute audio CDs.

Unlike the online audio we've had to downsample for online presentation, The Best of is mastered in compact disc fidelity using the best source material available. Many of the airchecks included are "right off the board" or "right off the air monitor" quality.

Each non-stop CD is narrated by John Quincy and fully produced with era-specific music and authentic WAKY jingles, similar to Bill Bailey Tribute and WAKY Remembered CDs.

The Best of is perfect for WAKY fans who...

  • don't have Internet access

  • want to enjoy memories of the original 790 WAKY while driving around in their car or are at another location away from their computer

  • are looking for a gift for a friend or family member with fond memories of listening to the original WAKY

  • want to have a tangible piece of WAKY history

  • would like to support our efforts to keep the 790 WAKY memories alive online
