Since we’re in the midst of our 2012 Winter Membership Drive, we thought it would be fun to fire up the old Radio Time Machine and take a listen to what KRCC Membership Drives sounded like a quarter of a century ago. Before you listen, it’s important to remember that though you’ll hear some familiar voices, times were much, much different in the late 80’s, for example, Billy Crystal still had a career, the KRCC basic membership cost was $25, the old cop show, Dragnet had only been off the air for a little more than 15 years and finally, apparently in the 80’s you could get away with a nearly 3 minute long Abbott & Costello routine knock-off.
We hope you enjoy this trip in the Radio Time Machine as much as we did.
Exhibit A: Something we like to call “The Hollywood”, complete with Mike Procell’s John Wayne impersonation.
Exhibit B: Proof of inflation… also known as The Big Spender.
Exhibit C: When 1960’s era television was still in the shared social consciousness… “The NPR Police” with a special appearance from Jeff Bieri
Exhibit D: Mike Procell and Jeff Bieri team up to do a special Membership Drive edition of Abbott & Costello’s “Who’s on First” routine.

A special thanks to Mike Procell for digging these gems out and allowing us to share them!
