Storm N. Norman is the long time morning drive personality for WEBE in Westport Connecticut. 
It turns out he was a big 99X fan and wrote to me after the web site was created to joke that "it's about time!". 
He visited the station in 1975, took some great pictures and also recorded some great 99X airchecks. 
Here are some of those photos and airchecks from the "Storm N Norman Collection"


Dave Thompson

This is my favorite aircheck!
I recorded this on Christmas break from Graham Junior College in Boston, in my home in Norwalk Ct. Christmas Eve, Eve 1974!
An incredibly tight, Dave Thompson in PM Drive!
I guess if I had to say after 35 years of on-air, I have a very similar delivery. He is my radio hero!!
You will hear Dave, Gary McKensie doing news, some great 'live reads', Elton John Promos, memorable spots, and tons of 99X Processing!!!
Priceless!! Classic Super X!! Enjoy!

Powerline 99X Summer of 1975 Part 1 & 2.
 Here you will see what Sunday mornings used to sound like on 99X.
In the days of running PSA shows, this was the gold standard of the God Squad shows.
Most of us can remember the days that we would run the board for example the Radio Portugal Hour,
where the husband and wife would walk in the studio with an armful of records,
and we would que them up, get pointed to, and that was that.
At 99X, they had Brother John Rivers, who hosted this syndicated nugget for many many years.
Enjoy Brother John and Powerline from the summer of 1975!
Pretty heavy messages!!
