WZIR FM Last Oil of Dog 1981

Gary Storm along with Louie the Mad Vinyl Junkie on the very last broadcast of Oil of Dog on WZIR FM – 98.5 from Niagara Falls, New York. This is the first Oil of Dog post sourced from WZIR FM. The previous clips are from the show’s resurrection on WUWU FM a few years later.

This was recorded one day before the station switched formats from free form to mainstream AOR. You can hear Gary and Louie discussing the situation at 22:10 – 32:32. Louie was not really a DJ and he had started as a fan and music collector guest on Gary’s program and was eventually given his own show. Listen here as they discuss what’s taking place with the station. Makes for very compelling radio as you hear a great format going down. Musical selections include tracks by The Move, Love Sculpture and Alan Stivell. I have more tape of this last broadcast and watch this space for the next segment.

One thought on “WZIR FM Last Oil of Dog 1981”

  1. I was a volunteer at WBFO from 78 – 80, when Gary was there with Oil of Dog. It was a wild time! Gary gave me my first production opportunity with an interview of Brian Eno for his show. It was right after “Pure Pop for Now People” came out. I got about halfway through the editing (razor blades and scotch tape) before I had to leave for college.

    Wish I’d been able to finish it…
