WAPE Jacksonville FL Post Records Album

Post Records was based in Philadelphia, and during the 1960s packaged and sold localized record albums for Top 40 stations around the country. Here's the WAPE Jacksonville Florida album. Judging from the selections, this was an early 70s release. Click each image to enlarge.

Post would always put the current jock lineup on the back of the record, making it a snapshot in time of the staff. WAPE's crew on this one is Jack McCoy, Larry Dixon, Mike Wingfield, Teddy Bear, Jay Thomas, and David London. Did Jay Thomas work EVERYWHERE?
