Three new 103-5 WAKY airchecks have been posted here: John Quincy's 2010 and 2011 guest DJ appearances, plus the Bill Bailey tribute hour with Johnny Randolph and Les Cook. -- John Quincy, Charleston, South Carolina 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 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.

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. John Quincy models his customized WAKY-WKLO Staff Jacket
