Not sure if Dick Purtan was on WJR. But he was an Icon in Detroit radio for many years. Retired just a few months ago.

Wasn't Dick Purtan on that station then? I was a kid, but I remember him and CKLW being a big deal in those days.

I grew up listening to CKLW before FM Radio. The Big 8 Yup. Big time memories with this clip Keener 13 WKNR was another good AM Station back then. W4 Quad, remember Quad radio? Love It! WDRQ was another one. WDRQ is a Ball lol! Remembering is a good thing.

Thanks for this clip! I was a teenager when listening to this station so of course it has wonderful memories for me. Use to get all sorts of great stations to come in at night in NE Ohio

VERY VERY good collage of my FAVORITE radio station of all time!!! I grew up with CK in the 60s, being in Cleveland it came in all the time! And, I've been fortunate to meet a lot of the people shown in this collagel, most of them at the 2005 Detroit Radio Reunion, which I videotaped!! Good job!!! For those who don't know, Rosalie was performed by Bob Seeger, as a tribute to Rosalie Trombley, music director at CKLW for many years, who broke hit record after hit record for The Big 8!!
