Weekend Hobbs House Host - October 7th, 1965, and
John's Last Show August 28, 1967
John sent a few airchecks from way back in 1965. A couple are posted here and several more will be posted soon. When Franklin Hobbs was having a day off or on vacation, John Sewall was broadcasting from "The Station That Serves The Nation." This was a time when the phrase "Clear Channel" did not refer to a broacasting conglomerate, but meant that the freaquency used by WCCO at 830 Khz was clear of other stations and you could hear WCCO across the nation.
You will hear John tell you the latest news and weather. John will also mix in the Hobbs' House music with a recorded (on transcription disk that looks like a phonograph record) Franklin Hobbs commercial, a Grain Belt Beer commercial, and other announcements from the Mid 60's.
Franklin Hobbs' Last show on WCCO can be heard on this site. It is on the WCCO 830 page.
