The Radio Days/Daze, through the '70s & '80s, uniquely qualifed and prepared Airlift Mike to helm Airlift Productions, known as Mike McCann in NOLA... and John Saint John​ elsewhere.

It's kind of hard to explain the thrill of LIVE radio in those prehistoric days before the internet/web, the iPhone and a 24/7/365 digitally-connected world. Radio was EVERYTHING! And at WLAC (1510 AM) Nashville, we reached Canada & Cuba from the mid-South! Sample just a taste of the excitement with this aircheck from the Summer of 1980 here ...
