Streeter Click

In middle 1970s,Wolfman Jack was at the top of his game. Following the incredible success of "American Graffiti," Wolfman relauanched his syndicated weekly three-hour show across North America. Sixties nostalgia was back, but sounded bigger than ever! Throughout 1976, Wolfman Jack toured selected cities to broadcast his show "live," in the same time slots as his syndicated show ran.

On Saturday 16 October 1976,Wolfman Jack blew into Ottawa for 3 hours of exilarating, exciting radio from 9:00 pm to midnight on CFRA-AM. Here's a scoped half-hour air check from that show.





Here's another scoped half-hour from that show on CFRA-AM. Push to start.
