In November of 1966, WKNR was still riding the wave as the dominant Top 40 radio station in the Motor City. It was a time when Keener bumper stickers were available at all Detroit area Sinclair stations, the film Endless Summer was playing at better theaters and listeners could win a 1967 Pontiac GTO. Stop sets on the weekends consisted of a single commercial unit, you were never more than 60 seconds away from the music.
Keenerfan Jim Feliciano shares this gem from November 26th, 1966. Paul Cannon spent most of his work week as Keener’s music director, but during the weekends, he got to exercise his on-air chops. Our 10 minute segment features deep tracks from Hermans Hermits and BJ Thomas, oldies from the Sherry’s and the Edsels, and WKNR Music Guide entries from Jackie Wilson, Nancy Sinatra, Jimmy Ruffin.
