Fred Petty was Program Director at WOCA and sister station WMFQ “Q-Lite 92.9”, back in my Ocala radio days. We ran Rush Limbaugh live from Noon-3 and the adjacency spot didn’t always time out correctly. So, Fred recorded an intro using Rush’s opening theme music (“My City Was Gone” by the Pretenders.) We’d then mix this with the actual opening intro that was provided by the network. As you will hear, the beats didn’t always match up perfectly. Close enough, though. Only us radio geeks noticed this. The listeners didn’t.
By the way, I wish I had more of Fred Petty to share with you. He was a great talent, not only on WOCA/WMFQ, but also on Ocala’s “Key Radio” (WWKE-AM 1370) during the 1970s and early 80s. You may have heard his voiceovers for “The Villages” which air on cable TV systems across the country. Unfortunately, this is the only aircheck I have of Fred.
I received this from my residence just south of Ocala using a Realistic AM/FM/CD/cassette portable stereo. The built-in AM antenna provided plenty of signal. Source tape is a Sony HF90 cassette.
