94.7 Kicks Country #1

A videographer for the television show Radio Faces visits the grand opening broadcast of the new station, 94.7 Kicks Country. Most of the tape consists of video of Nancy Turner, a woman who has been involved in Chicago Country Radio since 1977.

The videographer films her while the country music is playing in the background, later Turner talks to the viewers. She is apparently the first announcer on the new station 94.7 Kicks Country. Turner was also previously involved in Chicago Country music radio and is apparently just returning now. There is film of her answering the phones answering the phone calls up to the 94th caller who she talks to for a bit. There is a playback of the recording of the phone call of the 94th caller. Throughout the broadcast there seems to be a lot of scrambling to figure out equipment and how the people will work with each other. There are also several photos taken of Nancy with different people who supported the opening of the station.

  1. Nancy Turner had a great public relations custom. On a Friday night she’d invite listeners to call her and tell what they and their friends were doing to celebrate the weekend. She spoke in such an earnest, plaintive voice that probably made many listeners feel that they ere doing a great thing by calling to make small talk on radio. I wish that I had known her and I thought of how she reminded me of the Bible’s Book of Proverbs, chapter 31, which describes The Ideal Wife. I’ve never married, but I thought that any man who’d qualify to marry her would be fortunate indeed.
