A friend came across some old reel to reel airchecks, and posted this one from WWNH in 1955. Anyone know the DJ? He mentions Lou Terry is in the back room listening to a live Red Sox game.

A pretty good example of how rock and roll was starting to impact the radio playlist in 1955. The Star Way radio program features Bill Haley, Charlie Mariano, Matt Dennis, Claude Thornhill, Frank Sinatra, Phil Foster, Preacher Rollo and the Five Saints, and Woody Herman performing the soon to be released film " Love is a Many Splendid Thing". The program was recovered from a 7" Scotch 190 reel to reel tape from a personal collection. Local commercial spots include Elayne (Elaine) Jewelers and Carrigan Motor Sales in Rochester, NH. Mention is also made of Lou Terry who went on to have a very successful career as a radio personality.
