We're BACK! Soul on the Air #22 - Buddy Lowe, 1965

I am so glad to announce that all of the "Soul on the Air" posts on this blog are now back in working order! The player from Yourlisten works very well, and I look forward to picking up the slack and getting lots more good airchecks on here! With that in mind, here's the new entry...

Music podcasts - Download Audio - Buddy Love, WILD Aircheck, 1...

This installment of "Soul on the Air" come>s from Boston's WILD, which operated as a brokered-time station with multi-ethnic programming until 1967, when the station (owned by the same company as sister station WAMO in Pittsburgh and WUFO in Buffalo) went R&B full time under the programming guidance of WAMO's Hal Brown, who was the subject of the last "Soul on the Air" feature. I don't know anything about Buddy Lowe, but what I do know is that over the course of twenty minutes, he lays down serious soul, ranging from the throwback "Finger Poppin' Time" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, to "The Real Thing" by Tina Britt and "Stop and Get a Hold of Myself" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, interspersed with great commercials, including one for the legendary Skippy White's record store. Great music, great commercials, and great fidelity reign here! Enjoy!

Thanks to a fan for correcting the DJ's name here - it's Walter "Buddy" Lowe you hear here!

Should this deejay's name be buddy Lowe rather than Buddy love?
