WQHK-AM 1380 Fort Wayne IN Overnights 1983

WQHK has been a Country powerhouse in Fort Wayne for as long as anyone can remember. Today, most folks know them as K105FM, broadcasting at 105.1 on the FM band. 36 years ago, WQHK was still at its original dial position of 1380AM. I was fortunate enough to be able to hear them at night, although with a pretty significant noise floor. 1380 was a busy frequency in my area. I managed to snag this quick audio clip when WQHK was at maximum “bounce” and thus on top of the pile of stations. Does anyone know who the jock is here?

This was received from Apple Valley, Minnesota, using a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver and horizontal long wire antenna. The recording was made using a Technics stereo cassette deck and a TDK D90 tape.
