-- John Quincy (a.k.a. Ted Tatman)
-- John Quincy, Charleston, South Carolina
made sure he
was one of the ones chosen to be one of the teen DJs.
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 at other Lexington area radio stations (WEKY, WAXU, WCBR, WKDJ, and WBLG) before Quincy
got the call in 1979 to escape Lexington's mostly awful 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, Country WNKT and AC WSUY.
Subscribers to Tom Konard's Aircheck Factory service might remember Quincy
as one of the narrators of "Around The Dial" and various profiles.
