Jeff & Flash on WKYC-TV – March, 1981

It’s March 16, 1981 and Doug Adair and Mona Scott are anchoring the evening newscast on WKYC-TV/Cleveland.

Think Perry Como teamed with Anne Murray.  

Think Perry Como having an affair with and later marrying Anne Murray.

This video was part of On the Radio Extra – a five-part series by WKYC reporter Ed Miller, spotlighting the top Cleveland radio morning drive shows of that era.    

This one, the first in the series, featured Jeff Kinzbach and Ed “Flash” Ferenc.

You’ll catch a fleeting glimpse of our gargantuan side-of-a-building “Cleveland Rocks” Buzzard wall, which was located next to a former Holiday Inn (now a Cleveland State dorm) at Euclid and East 22nd.   The Buzzard wall was later replaced with an equally-large “Jesus loves you” message when the building owner purportedly became a born-again Christian.

The video shot in the WMMS studios was done on the morning of March 11.  The previous day, we had scored an unauthorized exclusive copy of the Who’s new Faces Dances album and had played tracks from it hourly since 6 PM the previous evening.
