WYOO-AM 980 Minneapolis MN Michael O’Shea 1973

How many of you remember this one? It’s the “Twin Cities Goin’ Home” singing jingle, used by Michael O’Shea. Michael did afternoons on WYOO-AM during it’s incarnation as an Oldies station. I don’t have an exact date on this. Judging from other audio that was captured on the same cassette, I’d guess it to be early 1973.

This was recorded onto one of those cheap Audio Magnetics “bag cassettes”, so the audio quality isn’t great. The oxides have been partially worn off which is common for an inexpensive cassette that’s 46 years old. Very few tapes of this jingle have survived over four decades, so I wanted to make it available here. Equipment used was a Spartan-Atlantic portable cassette recorder with built-in AM radio. Pretty high-tech stuff for an 8-year-old!
