This aircheck was originally posted on YouTube by Ryan Scriver, whose description reads; “recorded on to reel to reel off the radio in South Shore, South Dakota on January 5 1964” In its original form, frequent signal drops render it largely unlistenable.

His dad was the town pharmacist and his mom was a piano teacher at Cooter High School. Between church, school, and home, Ronnie was always surrounded by music.

Radio recording of KJYO (102.7 FM) Oklahoma City from 2003. I am guessing on the month, but one of the spots mentions a haunted house, so I think it's either September or October. KJ 103 is a CHR (Top 40) formatted station. Jingles are re-sings of Reelworld's Kiss 108 Boston 2003 imaging package. Air talent is "Frito on the Radio."
