RADIO SPINNER has a collection of radio transcripts, airchecks and special broadcasts. This is another rare find from Aircheck City. This is an unscoped, unedited recording of Mighty Mack, a disc jockey that worked at 1290 WGLI. This particular unscoped/unedited aircheck is a rare find, this is probably the only known full unscoped aircheck of Mighty Mack. This recording is from a Long Island radio station called WGLI-AM 1290, there are very, very few airchecks from WGLI-AM, and to find one that is unscoped is rare in itself. WGLI-AM started in 1958, the "GLI" stood for "Greater Long Island" Communications Inc., the station was also called "The Mighty 1290". WGLI was at the same location in Babylon New York from 1958 until the station burned down in 1990. This particular show starts at 11:00 PM on good Friday and runs just under one hour. The format is oldies, the station was also know as Long Islands' number one oldie station. Mighty Mack is doing an excellent job spinning the oldies. Everything is intact, news, weather and commercials, a little piece of history from the Reagan years.
The sound quality is excellent for AM radio, mastered on CD.
