Sam Lawson’s Audio Vault: Larry Lujack & Tom Snyder, 1975

“You say we play the most music when your disc jockeys are no good.” ~Larry Lujack (at 7:40)

Hear a bunch of great Larry Lujack bits from KJR, WLS, and WCFL, intertwined with a 1975 appearance on “The Tomorrow Show” with Tom Snyder. This comes from a vinyl record album called the “Ultimate Radio Bootleg Volume 2,” which I copied to reel to reel in the late ‘70s, burned to cd in the ‘90s, and most recently converted to mp3. I’m now thinking about putting it on a cassette.
