Mad Daddy Aircheck 1958


As a companion to The Tale of the Mad Daddy Acetates (part 2 coming soon) here is one of my favorite airchecks of The Mad Daddy. It's from 1958 when he was in his prime. Great song selection and Mad Daddy patter.

This is the first 58 minutes or so of an overall 2 and half hour aircheck. Probably the closest we can come to actually having a complete Mad Daddy show.

Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Kogar
    What a show, I'm imagining all the crazy dancing going on around the transistor radio on a Tuesday night back in 1958.
    Great post

  3. Thanks Kogar! I just finished putting together a mad daddy tribute show for the station I dj at. Just out of coincidence, the first four songs are the exact same as this aircheck. Wow!!!
