Welcome to LKYRadio - Classic Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky Radio, 26 May 2015 [cached]
Even though he was born 15 years earlier, Lexington, Kentucky native John Quincy [Real name: Ted Tatman] didn't really discover Top 40 radio until he smuggled in a transistor radio to a church camp outside of Louisville in the summer of 1970. After a few hours of listening to the legendary WAKY in his dorm room, he caught the radio fever. Upon his return to Lexington and a visit to local stations to find out how radio stations really performed that on-air magic, he was hooked.
Shortly thereafter a high school teacher told him about a Junior Achievement program being sponsored by WVLK-AM. Every Wednesday night WVLK would turn over a half hour of their programming to high school kids, who would sell, operate, and program it. Quincy made sure he was one of the ones chosen to be one of the teen DJs.
Between his junior and senior year of high school, Quincy scored a summer job working seven days a week at WBGR AM & FM in Paris, Kentucky. Most of the time was spent running the board for Cincinnati Reds baseball games, but for part of each shift he got to play DJ. While it was country music (which was especially bad in the early '70s), it was radio. From that point, Quincy never looked back.
There were stints in other Lexington area radio stations (WEKY, WAXU, WCBR, WKDJ, and WBLG) before Quincy got the call in 1979 to escape Lexington's chilly winters and work in sunny Savannah, Georgia (WKBX and WZAT). Then in 1981, Quincy moved up the coast to Charleston, South Carolina to take on PM drive duties at rock station WSSX. Later Charleston gigs included AC WXTC (where he spent nearly 10 years as PD), All 70s WJUK, Country WBUB, Oldies WXLY, News-Talk WTMA, and Country WNKT. Subscribers to Tom Konard's Aircheck Factory service might remember Quincy as one of the narrators of "Around The Dial" and various profiles.

Randolph told WAKY archivist John Quincy, "when I first went to Louisville, WAKY and KLO were battling neck and neck.
Long time fan John Quincy has created a tribute site that lovingly tells the story of one of America's great stations.
Although never employed by either station, Tatman -- who today is known as John Quincy at WSUY-FM in Charleston, S.C. -- has organized the reunion of former WAKY and WKLO air personalities and staff for the second consecutive year.
"The whole thing is a labor of love," Quincy said.
South Carolina broadcaster John Quincy, a native of Lexington who liked WAKY so much that he created the tribute Web site, said the site registers thousands of hits each month from fans who fondly remember the original WAKY after all these years.
John Quincy, who maintains a popular Web site about the original WAKY, wrote in an e-mail, "The new WAKY is helping to keep the legend of the original alive, especially since the folks in charge were big fans of the Big 79.

Michael Louis Griffin and Mason Lee Dixon surprised John Quincy (the curator of the WAKY and WKLO tribute sites) by reading letters from former WKLO PD Terrell Metheny and former WAKY PD Johnny Randolph proclaiming him an honorary WAKY and WKLO air personality.
The letter was later signed by other WAKY and WKLO folks (read the letter here) and Quincy was presented a customized "staff" jacket with the logos of the two stations on the back.
