New in the Aircheck Archive – Steve Robbins, January, 1967
When Jim Jeffries left Keener for WQXI, part-timer Steve Robbins assumed the overnight chores. He was at the station for less than a year and had the distinction of writing a music column in one of the interim newspapers that published duing the 1967 newspaper strike. In January, the Monkees were riding high on the WKNR music guide, at number one with I’m a Believer. Their national tour was due to make a stop in Detroit the night after this aircheck was recorded on Friday, January 6th. In the top ten that week was an eclectic mix including Snoopy vs The Red Barron, Georgy Girl, Words of Love, Tell It Like It Is, Karate, Good Thing, Love’s gone Bad, I’m Gonna Miss You and Nashville Cats.
