(Humorous hi jinx from Mystery Playhouse)
George Orwell wasn't the only one who gave us good reason to fear the year 1984. It was also the year the FCC let certain undesirables at the radio dials of WEGL. Those misfits would continue to assault ears and airways for years to come, from Coast to Coast, and through a variety of different media. Most (but not all) of those attacks were recorded or somehow preserved. Now you can listen and laugh at what others heard decades ago and wondered WTF?
This is just the start with a focus on the tapes and images from WEGL's infamous Gang of Four (Corry Smith, Spike Fullerton, Kurt Kuersteiner, and Lynn Worthington). But as more files are transferred, you'll also hear the Dr. Saleed Rhaman show, The Sunday Night Wrestling Report, The Allen Prell Show, and the always entertaining Tommy Smeltzer. So adjust your tin-foil hats to frequency 91 & 90.1 kilohertz and get ready to go forward into the past.
