“Former D-C staffers explain ‘how we did it,’ with lots of photos and detail,” he said. The site will appeal to those for whom “radio nostalgia” means tape-based automation, current reels, jingles and time-announce carts. Drake-Chenault at one time supplied more than 1,000 automation format tapes weekly to 300 stations. The company, as Landsberg knew it, was sold in 1986.
