Welcome Back, Jack

Jack Renault is returning to WGMD, an FM radio station outside of Lewes and Rehoboth Beach here in coastal Sussex County Delaware. Jack was a sales guy at WGMD when I worked there back in the mid-80s. He's apparently about to take on the job of General Manager of the station.

Jack always seemed a classic radio "voice" to me, and a salesman of the old school. He and Bob Smith, who unfortunately passed away three years back, taught me a great deal about that business.

Over the years, I've seen Jack around here and there. He was sometimes selling for WGMD and sometimes focused on his Jack Renault Advertising Specialties business.

I'm not a WGMD listener, but I wish Jack well in his tenure running the place. I always enjoyed spending time with him.

Did Jack Renault work for WWTR back in the 70's, or was it WKHI? I've heard his name somewhere before, I just can't remember.

I don't know for certain, but I think he may have. That was before my time...

Hello,

I'm trying to ID the WWTR-FM jock in the following aircheck and I hope you can help. It's from a summer afternoon in 1975:
