So I have resorted to giving this a try in hope to maybe find a girl who is worth spending time with and getting to know, I have grown up in a family and am close with my family as well.
I have grown up hunting in the woods and going on vacations and stuff when I was a kid meant camping. I love to travel, I have been to mexico and canada cant wait to travel more!

I remember seeing ads for them in Scientific American in the 60's, and then at some point they disappeared. I hadn't bought one then because I was just a kid and couldn't afford it. One day, I realized that I hadn't seen those ads for a while, and maybe they were no longer available. Do you want it? I recently discovered my late father's [Curta] , among my mother's things. I learned to use it as a child and was pleased to find it fully functional and in very good condition. The finger ring for the clearing lever is unfortunately broken off.
I assume that someone tried to put the machine in the metal case without retracting the lever. I would like to know if replacement parts are available. Bought it new around , had it cleaned and lubricated once. In perfect condx but case scratched. It's in perfect condition with the canister for protection and a leather pouch that goes on a belt to hold the canister. It was given to me by Ted Ryan of Los Angeles about 20 years ago. He used it when he was a Civil Engineer working for the Road Department.
Ted went on to teach electronics at a Los Angeles high school. I use it from time to time. I am a broadcast engineer and work as a consultant. Many times I've amazed people, maybe even shocked them, by pulling out the Curta and working some math with it for fun. Sometimes they've even forgotten they were having a problem because of their intrigue with the strange "pepper mill" I was using to work math. I plan on keeping my Curta and enjoying it.
It has become like a part of the family. The fact that Ted gave it to me and what it is has given it a special meaning and place in my heart. Thank you for your page. Just obtained this from widow of owner. Mint condition with box same serial number , warranty card and documentation still rolled up around the plastic case.
Wanted one since a rally driver let me use one in the early 60's. My uncle worked as an accountant in Esso Standard Oil here in Guayaquil back in the sixties. This company owned all aircraft fueling operations in Ecuador, and every delivery needed some calculations. At that time, they did have some electric calculators, but safety regulations did not allow them near the airport pads where airplanes were refueled. Later, of course, all this got kilobyted and megahertzed and the Curta became a curious paperweight.
I was 16 years old in and already [had] a slide rule and [was a] calculator collector My Type I is in perfect mechanical and aesthetical condition, I have the instruction booklet in Spanish and the metal case has a few minor scratches. I am a Land Surveyor and have an extensive calculator collection. Although most of mine are the 70's period electronic pocket calculators, I really love my Curta I. I recently purchased two of these from a retired engineer and promptly sold the one in mint condition.
I kept the other because it has the older metal case as well as a hand-made leather outer case made by his wife who did leather crafts. It is like new; only slightly used. The manuals are with it. I also have the user manual in German. My father use it in his work as a Surveyor for the city of Detroit, MI. The case is metal. I have no manual. The case is left-hand threaded. Unit is in excellent condition. Found in a second-hand store in Windsor, Victoria, Australia, during a sliderule-hunt.
When I told the shopowner I was looking for "calculators and the like" she pulled a familiar looking, round-topped black metal box from behind the counter, saying "I'm not sure if you'll find this interesting, but I think it's a calculator". I happily paid the asking price, which was around half what they're getting at the moment.
It's in fine condition, but tends to stick a bit when there are a few 'nines' involved in the setting knobs. No manual, of course, but it was easy enough to figure out how it worked. Something's wrong whith my Curta 2, The ring at the top of the machine is missing. I'm looking for one. Mine is a type I Curta in metal case with left-hand thread.
It belonged to a friend, who kindly sold it to me when he saw how much I wanted it. I'd wanted one ever since I saw the ads in Scientific American, but couldn't afford it. My type I is absolutely mint never used. Given originally as a gift to the original owner and put on the shelf until the estate sale.
The type II was used in surveying. I love to run them and take square roots! Part of my collection of mechanical four function machines including a TIM stepped drum and many pinwheel calculators: German, Russian, English, Swedish. Still active in rallying today.
I was in a survey attachment to a medium artillery unit and the CURTA was used for gun placement and target calculations. I didn't see another one until when living in Georgetown, Malaysia Penang in a survey and drafting equipment supply store. After many weeks of haggling over the price just prior to my departure, I intended to buy it with the allowances that I recieved for my return to Australia, but with the hassles of the move back home I forgot it, and it has been a sore point with me for all these years.
Every time I return to Asia or visit a second hand store I can be found trying to describe this calculator which doesn't require batteries to a juvenile store clerk who can't understand why I don't just by the latest 'Casio'. Only tonight did I think to look it up on 'the net' and I am pleased that there are like minded people out there who appreciate such a fine instrument. The handle on the machine has been glued on before I aquired it.
It doesn't effect its operation. Looking for a nice Type II and I also collect slide rules http: None had ever seen one of these before! Black metal case and no instructions, excellent mechanical conditions. Bought my Type II in the early 60s when I first started rallying equipped. Bought the Type I from my boss, Bob Helmick, in the late 60s after he returned from a vacation in Liechtenstein. He bought it there on a whim.
I talked him out of it. My Curta II is packed in a box somewhere in the basement. Took a twenty-five year detour through racing where it did not have much use, but am now back in rallying and still love to use this machine. Love your sight and the information, particularly leads to possible service when I need it. I'm sure your first digit is "5". Also a duplicate number is usually inside the Curta under the bottom cover.
It was probably from my grandfather in mid of 50's. It is in very good condition with metal case. If a good offer comes I can sell it. I have a Curta Model I. I actually had no idea what a Curta was and just thought I'd take a stab on the web to see if I could find out if this old fashioned calculator I've had for years is worth anything. The year through the Curta equation came out to be The case is metal, turns counter clockwise and is in quite good condition with no dents, some scratches and wear marks on the predominant areas.
The "calculator" itself is in excellent condition. I have a Curta Type II in its original box including operating instructions and computing examples for the Curta calculating machine. Munro frrom Manchester CEN. None of the manuals or instructions are dated. My father was unable to figure out how it worked, so he handed it off to me, I was 16 at the time. After many attempts I did figure out how to use all the functions except square roots.
Dad bought this Curta in the late 60's. He's a real estate appraiser, still working and going strong at However, the Curta holds more fascination for me than it does for him now. Actually, I've always been intrigued by it, so Dad gave it to me recently. He'd rather play with spreadsheets on his PC. Mine is in original condition, with a plastic cylindrical case, the original cardboard box, the instruction sheet, sample calculations, and warranty card.
I saw two names of guys I knew in England and will contact them. I'm in the UK, he's in Australia. These were certainly either well marketed, or someone emigrated with his Mine is a family heirloom I intend to pass to my son.
I just got passed down from my father this magnificent machine in great shape. Took awhile, and several peoples help to figure it out.
It belonged to an accountant that worked for him in the early 60's. Does any body have a set of instructions they would share? I didn't know what it was at first and figured out that it had some mathematical use after "playing" with it for awhile. Most of the family had assumed it was used for photograpy since the device was found in a drawer with some old Leica cameras and flashes.
Uncle Ray was a carpenter and for years built bowling alleys. Eventually he built his own bowling alley. Why he had a Curta, I'll probably never know.
One interesting bit of information, Uncle Ray was born and raised in Liechtenstein. Have been admiring those units since a teenager. Couldn't have one at that time. It is impeccable and works smoothly like it was made last week. After discovering the amazing Curta calculator at the museum of HP Calculators I was looking for one during the last two years, finally finding one on the eve of the last christmas day on a local flea market here in Brasil who said there's no Santa?
The case doesn't feature the " Unfortunately, the clear ring was broken on my Curta, but the previous owner saved the missing part that I found in the bottom of the case. Complete with Black moulded case I love the left hand thread and Manual multiple folded single sheet in green and black I acquired the above from a colleague who previously used it to calculate CRT deflection system coil assemblies for TV sets during the late 60's early 70's.
It remain unused until when during an office discussion about a project I was working on the subject came up about calcualting devices. I was programming one of the HP calculators forget the model at the time and my colleague brought this in to show how it used to be done!! He left the company I was working about a year later, and prior to leaving he discovered that the Curta was still in his desk. He gave it to me as a parting gift - and what a gift - I have shown it to many people over the years and it has created lots of debates.
For me its about the history, craftmanship and technology, but most of all the realisation that something like this will never again be produced certainly not commercially and that it represents a time before the charge for everything digital and computer based. Nothing best demonstrates this than during the production period to ; only two versions entered into production. Cannot think of many modern devices having a mean life of Calculated using my olde Curta!!
I inherited a Curta in excellent conditions and metal box, from my -now retired- late boss. Both we are biochemists, and I remember well my boss and his closest co-worker "grinding" numbers for calculating enzymatic activities from till ! I was about 25 years old.
I restarted happily to "grind" numbers with the Curta Machine, rousing astonishment among the today youngs! I first used a Curta in the mid '60's as a lawyer in court, but have recently acquired the one referred to below which is really to good to use in a serious rally. I also have three pieces of original literature. A single two sided page flyer "Who counts on Curta" - "Curta the calculator for people who count". I have also heard of, but never seen, a cable for use with the Curta in a rally environment.
I am reluctant to use my mint Curta in serious long distance classic rallies, so would like to purchase another "more used" Type II, cosmetic appearance unimportant provided that it is in perfect working order. Original Owner was Jerry and Marry Stoughton.
I had rallied in my late teens and early twenties during the late 's and had come to know the Stoughtons. At an unrelated after-event pub crawl Jerry and Mary indicated that retirement from Rally was imminent, and offered their Type II was for sale. I responded with "name your price and I'll pay it". I have used the wondrous tool on several occasions in TSD Rallies and done reasonably well.
I would love to find an opportunity to use it more. Plastic case, Instruction book lost. Curta was purchsed in U. It was also used at work electrical engineering when slide-rule precision was insufficient. I'm collecting pocket calculators. You can visit my museum at www. Thanks and happy collecting. My dad used this in the 60s while he was an appraiser. I always told him that I wanted it willed to me but he decided not to wait. Most people can't figure out what it is when they see it.
It was bought not long ago at a car boot sale. It is in perfect condition, it looks unused, even the case is perfect. This Curta is not for sale, we intend to pass it on to our grandson. I have a Curta Calculator, in perfect condition with metal canister and both manuals are in perfect shape. According to your web page it's a model. This very unique machine is very special to me. As a child at the age of 8, I remember my Grandfather showing it to me and I was so impressed, after just one short encounter, I remembered 35 years later to ask for it after he passed on.
I would be honored if you would register me in memory of my Grandfather: In memory of Col. The metal cannister has a right-hand thread. The only markings on the cannister is: There is no other line work, etc. The 'O'-ring, internal bottom foam pad, internal top rubber clamping pad; are all there, and in excellent condition. On the barrell of the calculator, above the setting register is engraved: The second line is engraved in much smaller letters.
The setting knobs are pegs, not the serrated slides that I have seen in all pictures of the calculator. On the barrell on the opposite side of the setting register is engraved: It appears to have been used very little, if at all.
The attached 'pictures' actually direct scans on the bed of my scanner are of poor quality, and are deceptive as to the condition of the calculator. For example, the picture of the bottom of the calculator indicates that the lettering might be blurred, partialy missing and not sharp: In all of the pictures that I have seen, I have never seen a picture showing: Freiden electro-mechanical calculator which was on a sort of permanent loan to the University of Nottingham, England.
Before I'd finished essential statistical calculations on fossil brachiopods, the company was taken over and Freiden machines on loan were recalled. As an undergraduate in the late 50s, I had seen a Curta and I guessed that, in the crisis, it might be affordable to me as a private acquisition in order to complete my thesis.
For the sum of about sixty pounds very painful at the time! I bought mine from a forgotten shop in Nottingham, UK, and I still have it. I think the handbook will emerge from the lower stratum of papers in a desk drawer when I get around to tidying some day!
I still have the cardboard box. I have only just discovered your site and learned just how much interest there still is in these mechanical marvels. I have been interested in mechanical things since a youngster with Meccano and still find fascination in this device which must be close to the ultimate of precision, pre-electronic age,consumer devices other than watches.
One of my favourite party pieces is to demonstrate how instrument-calculation was performed before the electronic calculator which youngsters seem to think was invented about the same time as fire! Goodness knows what they'd think of a slide rule! My Curta is in perfect working condition and virtually unmarked although the aluminium oops! Interesting, though, that the rubber O-ring seal and the foam shock-absorber and cushion in the lid have all retained their elesticity and show no sign of having perished.
There is something very satisfying about the 'feel' of these instruments, from the silkiness of the black anodised body to the amazingly smooth but positive movements. Having owned mine for nearly 40 years I can't imagine ever parting with it although I suppose the time will come when I part from it! I recently inherited my father's Curta and am looking for an instruction manual. The Curta is in mint condition, and although I have figured out simple multiplication and division functions, I know that the computer is much more powerful than I can imagine.
If you know of anyone willing to part with an instruction manual or even a copy thereof, I am definitely interested. This unit in very good state has black metal case, french instruction book and original box. I had absolutely no idea that these calculators had such a following!! Curta type II with computing examples and instruction manual. It also has a leather carrying case. The whole package is in mint condition. It is in a plastic container in a little cardboard box with a couple of manuals entitled: What an interesting device!
I shall have to have another go, as it's still the best device for solving puzzles which require the result of a multiplication to have known digits in specified locations.
This suggests that at that time L. At some later date the service agreement was handed over to Automatic Business Machines Ltd. This label has now been partly lost, but their telephone number was one starting xxxxxx, so that must have been after the change from alphanumeric codes to all-digit ones. As a collectors of Antique Surveying equipment a Curta is a must.
We purchased ours from a retired Surveyor. He was the original purchaser and kept both the instruction manual and what appears to be a pamphlet that describes the sales features for purchasing a Curta. Are there spares available? I used it while working for Varian Associates in the design drafting department. I still like to demonstrate how the Curta works to friends and family. I still have the original box, instructions, and plastic case.
It's a great machine. My father gave me his early type I which he used for rallye racing. I got the poster and my engineer colleagues come to my office just to study it! My Curta has green body with top and bottom black, it's in mint condition with it's black metal case also mint. I got it in a flea market in Mexico City at a ridiculous price.
My dad was a surveyor in the 's and he showed me how to use his Curta when I was about 8 years old. I have been fascinated with it ever since. When I dad passed away in , I inherited it and I will never part with it.
I was given a Curta Type II about 20 years ago. I did not have any instructions on how it operates. This morning, I thought about this little machine sitting on the shelf in my den, and decided to do a Internet search.
I can't tell you how delighted I was to find all this information. The secrets of this little jewel have been revealed. I am not interested in parting with it. I suspect my grandparent used it when ralleying. I do not have the paperwork. But I do have that left twist metal case. I got my Cueta from a friend who was a road rallyest for many years.
It looks brand new. It is a type 1 in a metal case whose top turns off in a clockwise direction. It was used to coordinate the time, odometer reading and mileage from the last check point. Along with my Curta calculator I have the operation manual, a booklet entitled "Computing examples for the Curta Calculating Machine'" published by Contina AG, Vaduz and the guarantee dated I am really not interested in selling these items along with my slide rule collection.
I was surprised to see a page dedicated to the Curta and think it's great. My Dad bought his back in while being a Surveyor. I remember using it many times while working with him though I was only 14 years old at the time. I am a Surveyor also and have since been Licensed in 3 States but have only spoken to one other surveyor who still has one of these. I bought it new in about or thereabouts, primarily for doing sports car rallies.
The Type II has got enough figures on it to keep 2 continuous calculations going on at once. I built a special double clipboard with a bracket to hold the Curta and another bracket to hold the Heuer stopwatch I used along with it.
I've still got all 3 Curta, stopwatch, and clipboard but seldom use them all together any more. In I was asked to help my mother's friend set some items up for a yard sale. My brother and I were told that we could each pick one item as compensation for our efforts. My brother picked a box of comics and I picked this very interesting mechanical calculator. The basic one page instruction manual was wrapped around the metal case and held in place with a trusty rubber band.
I was always fascinated with the device but had no idea there were so many others. Mothers moving to warden controlled flat she's 81 So have just cleaned out her garage before she moves, only to find this wonderful precision engineered mechanical calculator. I vaguely remember my late father showing me this item when I was approx 13 I am now His name was Jerry Meldgaard. Apparently the rep was sitting in the seat next to him. In the course of talking he told Jerry that the Curta was not selling very well because of the increasing use of electronic calculators.
Jerry liked fine mechanical instruments and owned Leica cameras as well. Jerry was a customer in my restaurant and after he died his wife remembered that I had expressed an interest in Jerry's Curta.
I still have the original box with matching SN, manual, and the warranty card. It is like new. Jerry never used it and neither have I. I didn't know what I had at the time. I put it away until just recently when I was showing it to my step-daughter.
I decided to try to find out what it was. I was surprised to see a web site devoted to the machine. In I joined a firm of Chartered Accountants and in I became a partner and I still hold this position today. I used them extensively but they were large heavy machines, so much so that the female staff would not move them. At the new firm I discovered a Curta. It was bought in , probably in England by a client of the office who was on an overseas holiday.
On his return to New Zealand he presented it to one of the partners who was a bit of a gadget man. I quickly learned how to use it but the two of us were the only ones who could use it. This was a type 1 model and I found that it did not have enough capacity to handle pounds, shillings and pence which was the currency of that time.
In due course the partner retired he was a world war 1 gallipoli veteran and another partner took over the Curta and learned how to use it. At my bidding a type 2 model was purchased from an agent in Wellington New Zealand. It was my calculator and I still have it to this day. In the type 1 came to me as I was the only one who could use it and electronic calculators had taken over.
In our house was burgled and the type 1 was stolen along with other property. No doubt it was dumped as the burglars would not have been able to use it. Unfortunately I did not have the serial number but it had a metal case and was in good well used order. The real history for me is that in the client who purchased the series 1 Curta became my father in law. I still have the instruction manuals and calculation examples which came with both Curtas.
The type 2 which I have is number and it was purchased in or It still works well but constant use over many years has worn off some of the colour on the body and some of the markings are rather indistinct.
Our office computer staff are fascinated by it and I am told that many of my clients refer to me as the accountant with the coffee grinder or the pepper grinder. One of our greatest rivals used a Curta for timekeeping. He used to jealously guard his machine and his method. One day I asked him what his method was and he very quickly and briefly told me what he did thinking that I would not understand.
What he did not know was that I had a Curta and ten minutes on my machine was all I needed to know his system. He never knew that I knew! I did not have to convert time into decimals and written records gave me the ability to check time penalties on results sheets against my own calculations. Many times I was able to point out errors and improve our results. I still compete in the occasional Car Trial but they are now not well supported. I still do not use the Curta for Car Trials but I still use it on occasions in my office.
In I was in Liechtenstein and enquired after the Curta factory. I was told that it had closed down. I knew little about the history of Curtas until I found the web page a few days ago. I hope this tome is of some interest to you.
I saw my first Curta Mk II in my bosses desk in and was immediately smitten with the idea of owning one. It was one of eight I believe bought by the management for use in the Drawing Office. This one was the only remaining example and no one was sure or seemed to care as to the whereabouts of the other Machines. I made it my job to quietly look them out but in the years I was with the company never found them. I felt sure one day I would find them but never did. I recently bought my two machines, unused and still in their original Cardboard boxes from a London auction house.
The original plan was to sell the Mk II and keep the Mk I but am so pleased with their stunning condition I am having second thoughts and hope my Partner just forgets about the money I owe her! I just aquired a "curta" type 1, I was amazed when I figured out what it was, well when I looked it up on internet and you told me what it was.
It's serial is , a clockwise turn opens it can you fill me in on an at birthdate or any other info? Thanks again for enlightening me. In good shape, every button seems to work but no result display!! I'm looking for someone who can repair it or maybe to sell it like it is? I have a Type-1 No. The Curta was essentially un-used and is in near-mint condition; however, there are no documents or boxes that can be found for this unit, they may still exist in my Grandmother's home but have yet to appear.
C'est en parlant de ma passion pour la mecanique de precision et de l'horlogerie qu'un ami me fit cadeau de cette CURTA 1. Il ne l'avait jamais utilise. Depuis je suis completement fou de cette merveille et je l'utilise tres souvent. Mes amis en sont facines. Pardon je ne parle pas l'anglais. It Was never used. Since I am completely Call us crazy about this wonder and I use very souvent. My friends are to do. Sorry I do not speak English].
I just acquired a nice Curta II with manual. The manual is really just an appended manual for the Curta I. Was a specific manual for the II ever produced? Overstepping is not clear to me and I cannot duplicate the readings on my II I must agree that the Curta is hypnotic. It's action is sweetly mesmerising. It could be likened to the Ring in The Hobbit with its effect its owner.
I turn the handle a few times whenever I'm stressed! I wonder if you can offer me any tips? It is in great condition and has been in our family for over 30 years. When my father gave it to me some years ago I did not know what to make of it so I keep it in my closet until my kids found it.
I went on the web to see if I could find out how to use it and down loaded the manual. That is how I found this web sit. Neat I did not know it was a colectors item. I first became interested in the Curta during my freshman year in college. I have since lost track of him but he used the Curta extensively in his work and demonstrated it to me on several occasions.
I really wanted one but of course could not afford it at the time. In the past several years I have been keeping my eyes open for one at rummage sales, antique stores and where ever I thought one might show up, but to no avail. I bought my Curta in in a very pleasant transaction with Skip Godfrey. He was selling this one for a friend in Singapore.
It is in almost perfect condition with no scratches or wear marks. The trouble with those visuals, according to church calculations, is that they distort the real picture.
While the departures certainly loom large for the individuals involved, their overall numbers remain relatively small in the scope of one of the world's fastest-growing religions. Please let me go.

The great piece of tape was compliments of regular contributor Jim Kaye. There was no one on radio who could pause for comedic effect like Lujack except maybe Jack has his own web site… www. Jack was kind enough to send me a copy… and it sure is a fun read!
Jack told me that Mac Richmond called him to complain about his air work 11 times the morning of this aircheck! Thanks to Jack for this sound of radio the way it was! They sure were fun to listen to while it lasted, though. Radio historian Neil Young captured this one live on his Radio Shack cassette recorder.
Despite poor audio, an inadequate DA, and one-fifth the power, they did manage to grab a share of the teenybopper audience. Through pure serendipity I had a tape rolling on that night. Incidentally, Ray had already left the station and was driving home, and nearly off the road , when Allen began his diatribe.
But it was at WHDH where they first met and teamed up to do their brand of dry, sophisticated humor. This aircheck, which sounds like it came off a transcription disk, includes a great bit about an obnoxious game show host, musical interludes, and a commercial for that new coming thing, television.
This is an aircheck of incredible fidelity and performance quality. Ingram is of course, of monumental talent This contribution comes from radio archivist Neil Young!

My thanks to Roger Fenn for this nifty offering! This is another offering you gotta listen to a couple of times to catch everything! Landry was a true pro, who later went on to be part of Los Angeles morning team Hudson and Landry. Sadly, Landry passed away in September of From the vast and amazing archives of continuing supporter Steve Ordinetz! He decided to talk about it on the air. From the collection of Neil Young. Their two biggest obstacles: Besides some great memories of Arnie, the interview features a segment with radio talk pioneer Jerry Williams.
It's amazing to hear Ginsburg NYC Radio Montage of the 60's and 70's. It is a fine piece of work It was put together by Peter Mokover years ago I'd suggest several listens to this gem As it's available from www.
Additionally, note that the jocks names are those of former Presidents and notables from American history. It was definitely unique! Contributor Dennis Jackson always comes through with the coolest stuff… thanks Den! Huge thanks for this one Steve! The younger Nickson went on to become the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Kings hockey team broadcasts, a position he continues to hold today.
Provided through the generous donation of listener Cary Pall. He is a really good guy and a pro through and through. An internet search for him indicates he contributes regularly to www.

Never heard a story like that before! They are, of course, delightful! He was 55 years old. Den Jackson's Production Reel 1. Thanks for this great listen, Den! These jingles, from their era as a "Soul" formatted station are a blast! Contributor Den Jackson wrote about 'em: I loved their music, and so went down after signoff and recorded jingles and records through their Gates Level Devil processor onto a Wollensak reel to reel.
I took that same original tape this week and lifted those jingles. Kisco where I did weekends in the Summers of and , and that were the model for the jingles in the infamous "WVWA becomes 'Nine'" parody.
Hearing them again, they did sound pretty good! The style was maybe not as hip as PAMS, but they were neat and well done. My favorite is, "Here's another sound with soul Lenke is excellent, and you'll hear a lot of Joseph format elements here I mean, he blows the first few intros The Mike Bugaj connection again came through with this one!
Howie Castle on Radio Caroline Radio Caroline, at kc and the jock on the air is named Bud Ballou! The audio quality is poor, fading in and out - and yet This great sound contributed by Mike Bugaj is a new classic! Upon receipt of this tape, which was just labeled "Radio Caroline, Kenitra, Morocco" I was unaware and nearly fell off my chair in researching that it truly is well known Syracuse radio guy Castle!

You can read more about Chuck at www. It's another fine contribution from Gary Liebisch. Well, this aircheck features a few, along with some great production and jingles. I was reminded of this one from my collection when I heard Roberts on the air in Florida while vacationing there.
It's a fine representation of 'CFR's format, though, which at the time contained such basics as "Don't say the call letters! Everyone knows who we are! I can't understand what you're saying when you talk too fast! From my personal collection, don't miss it! Among the benefits of doing the shift are cheesy spring reverb, phones ringing off the wall, each and every record running less than two minutes in length, and reading your own news!
What a great business radio is! Another contribution from Donn Jennett , a frequent contributor to www. His work on this "Retro 50's Weekend" was like a premonition of things to come. A welcome and valued contribution from Donn Jennett , a frequent contributor to Rick Irwin's www. This quick offering from the archives of Gary Liebisch brings back some great memories! Brucie called me during my show and said he was listening in his hotel room, about to head for the airport, and he thought my show sounded "great.
And he's great on this aircheck from when WMEX was great! Garabedian is still on the air on his nationally syndicated "Open House Party". Ballou also made radio legend status in Syracuse, and of course, did nights on WKBW during his career.
This one is from my personal collection, and all too short! You'll hear some great AC personality here, rarely heard anymore from any hard drive! Nathan also worked at WRKO in their waning days as a music station. This one is from my personal collection. You catch some cool commercials on the WTRY portion of the check. A commercial for Pickering phono cartridges It's another beauty, from the archives of Gary Liebisch!

This one from my personal collection of Boston area airchecks from the 70's. This one was from the Lafayette tape recorder archives of John Gabriel.

Mark gets the last laugh, though, now a Senior Manager for Quad Graphics he's doin' quite well. Mark sounds pretty darn good! Thanks for emailing this little wonder to me, Mark! A great performance from Cary, and for you compression freaks, you'll enjoy the audio. After the sale, the station went to beautiful music, and didn't return to playing contemporary music 'til the late 70's.
