WWL-AM 870 New Orleans Louisiana Legal ID 1982

In the early 1980s, WWL was a “trucker station” during the evening and overnight hours.  The big 50,000 watt clear channel signal allowed them to be heard across several states.  I had no problem hearing them from my location in Apple Valley, MN.  This quick station ID was captured during a routine dial scan.

Equipment used for this aircheck was a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver, horizontal longwire antenna, Technics stereo cassette deck, and Scotch Dynarange tape.

    Looks like restricted free agent cornerback Malcolm Butler was anxious for his meeting with the Saints. As a young disc jockey on the morning show of a rock music station in New Orleans in the 19, I felt like Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac were part of my job everyday.
