WHCN (W1XPW) Air Checks

We are always looking for additional air checks. Please contact us at admin@hartfordradiohistory.com if you have any.

Air check from December 9, 1980, the day after John Lennon was shot.
Featuring newscaster Chip Triest. The newscast is followed by a ’Sixty-Seconds’ feature with comments about what John Lennon meant to people. The last segment is Tom Watts (Tom Yankowski) backselling a Beatles song and explaining that WHCN would leave the air for 10 minutes in accordance with Yoko Ono’s wish for 10 minutes of silence to remember John. There is also the sound of the station resuming broadcast after 10 minutes of silence with a track from the Double Fantasy Album.
