In reply to: JM 's message, "Clark Race aircheck" on 19:18:55 04/08/17 Sat

This aircheck actually originated with me. The date and time is 7:30-8 p.m. Thursday, March 12, 1964. This was the first Clark Race show to feature a half-hour of solid Beatles, and it was so well received that it became a weekly feature every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. (where it counterprogrammed KQV's first half-hour out of an hour-long news block) through around November 1965. They then tried a half-hour of Supremes for one week at that time, but then dropped the whole thing.

KDKA and Clark Race also briefly tried a British countdown from 7:30 to 8 on Friday evenings in spring 1965, but gave up on it after a few weeks. Jerry G. Bishop on KYW in Cleveland was doing one around the same time, and there is an aircheck of it from June 1965, just a week or so before Westinghouse and NBC flipped in Cleveland and Philadelphia. The whole British thing never was as big in Pittsburgh as it was in other cities, apart from the Beatles — it remained more an R&B town, possibly due to Porky's and WAMO's continuing influence.
