John Records Landecker has had a legendary 40+ year radio career; one that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland saw fit to feature in their radio exhibit. Landecker was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and thatís where his radio career began. John has gone on to entertain radio audiences in Michigan (WOIA, WERX, WTRX, WILS), Philadelphia (WIBG), Chicago (WLS, WLUP, G-106, WCKG, WJMK), Toronto (CFTR) and Cleveland (Power 108). When he was working at WLS in the 1970s, John was named Billboard Magazineís Radio Personality of the year. In the 1990s, his WJMK morning show was named the best morning show in Chicago, and in the early 2000s it was recognized as the best Oldies radio show in America by Radio and Records. Johnís radio career is still going strong. He appears on WLS-FM 94.7 every night from 6-10pm. This is his first book, but he has released six previous CDs of his work; "Landecker & The Legends" ('94), "Landecker & The Legends, Volume 2" ('95), "Baby Boomers" ('96), "Live Long & Perspire" ('97), "Landecker & The Legends, Volume 5" ('98), and "20th Century Hits and Bits" ('99). He lives in Indiana with his wife Nika. And yes, Records truly still is his middle name.
