WLOL-FM 99.5 Minneapolis MN Sharon Tollefson 1983

Jay Philpott completes his “Hot Hits Countdown” and hands things off to Sharon Tollefson.  I believe she was part time at this point, holding down the late Sunday evening shift.  This is a short aircheck, consisting of Sharon’s first few breaks.  I grabbed this by accident, just letting the tape roll after Philpott’s countdown until it ran out.  So, this is all I have of Sharon.

The signal was received from Apple Valley using a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver, Winegard 10-element FM yagi antenna, Belden premium RG59 coaxial cable, and an Alliance rotor.  Much more gain than was needed for my approximate 20 mile distance from WLOL’s transmitter atop the IDS.  The recording was made using a Technics stereo cassette deck and TDK D90 tape.

    Hi Dave,

    Yes, he is. I listened to him on WLOL while I was attending Brown Institute in Minneapolis.

    You must be part of the new Dave FM in LaCrosse (?) So glad to hear you guys made it on-the-air. I did middays on Mix 103 in Hays, 11-12 years ago.
