This Just in: A Football Score from 1967!

Recently we uncovered original copies of what we called WTIT Newsletters. We only did them for a short while in 1967-1968. We thought we’d share them. It might shed insight on how we really thought everyone listened to WTIT. Though you’d have to be in our studio (to this day) to hear it. But back then, we were in high school and we played a lot of tapes at parties.  Here’s a piece of trivia: We always note that our original DJ staff was Bud Weiser, Galloping Gary, Bouncing Billy, Johnnie Walker and Killer Joe. And that was the first true staff that carried the ball from 1968 to 1973. But in our first year in 1967, Bud, Gary and Billy tried out a ton of guys who were given a shot before we settled on Joe and Johnnie. They literal joined WTIT on the same night in June of 1968. Johnnie and Bud are the only two original DJs that are still with the world's first and longest running Tape Radio Station.

FROM THE FUN TOWER: October 30, 1967

“What’s Terrific in T-I-T-Land”

Volume 1 Number 2

Number 2? Not us! This is the second in our series of newsletters. The popular demand for these have been overwhelming. We think you are using the back for scrap paper.

Football: The Hartford Charter Oaks: Last Saturday Bud Weiser and Galloping Gary attending the Oaks football game. The announcer was fantastic. We are in negotiations to add him to the WTIT DJ staff. Bouncing Billy and his dad were pleased that Hartford beat Montreal 38-14. Why? Bouncing Billy's dad is one of the owners of the Charter Oaks. 

Soul Tape: On WTIT Tape 1, Bud and Gary hosted a Supremes' Hour!  What an hour! When fellow DJs Billy, Sid and Dick heard the show they suddenly got nauseous and left the studio. 

A new jingle player, please! Our last show had no jingles because our tape deck that we use for them crapped out! We asked for donations, but our fans say they hate the jingles even more than the shows. If you'd like to voice you opinion call the WTIT Fun Line at 232-1936.
