Recently we uncovered original copies of what we called WTIT Newsletters. We only did them for a short while in 1967-1968. We thought we’d share them. It might shed insight on how we really thought everyone listened to WTIT. Though you’d have to be in our studio (to this day) to hear it. But back then, we were in high school and we played a lot of tapes at parties. Here’s a piece of trivia: We always note that our original DJ staff was Bud Weiser, Galloping Gary, Bouncing Billy, Johnnie Walker and Killer Joe. And that was the first true staff that carried the ball from 1968 to 1973. But in our first year in 1967, Bud, Gary and Billy tried out a ton of guys who were given a shot before we settled on Joe and Johnnie. They literal joined WTIT on the same night in June of 1968. Johnnie and Bud are the only two original DJs that are still with the world’s first and longest running Tape Radio Station.
We’re Pushing WTIT Tape 14 In no particular order we heard Tiny Tim’s only appearance. In that spot WHIP in Cleveland lent us “Whip It Out” Willie for a one nighter. Only Sid missed the tape. We wonder where he was? It’s quite a tape!
To Dick With Love: Anyone got and extra girlfriend? Dynamic Dick broke up with both of his. It’s really sad for him, and all. The rest of the DJs? We really couldn’t care less.
Gary will write next time’s issue. That’s what terrible and terrific now. This is Bud Weiser, good night!
