Fred Winston is one of Chicago radio's all-time greatest personalities. He began his career on Chicago radio as an afternoon DJ spinning the hits on WLS-AM in 1971. After almost six years there, he started his trek all across the Chicago radio dial, with stops at WMAQ-AM, WFYR-FM, WCFL-AM, back to WLS-AM, WJMK-FM, WLUP-FM, WPNT-FM, WXXY-FM, WJMK-FM, WJMK-HD2, WGN-AM, and WLS-FM.
From 1977-1981, Winston was the popular morning show host on the former WFYR-FM 103.5 (now WKSC-FM). The following aircheck comes from 38 years ago this month -- January 1978 -- with Winston having some fun on a cold winter morning on WFYR-FM. (Running time 4:17)
