Here are some links I found to the WEAM radio station:

Two WEAM sound bites in Real Audio from http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/3793/tape60s.htm. You can also buy a 71-minute CD of WEAM AM radio.

1970 WEAM promo (“Ar-ling-tonnnn” from DC Radio & TV’s web site  (wav file I believe courtesy of John Ahmad)

Red Barn jingle:  “When the Hungries hit, when the Hungries hit, hot the Red Barn!”

XM Radio tributes to WPGC and WEAM. XM Radio does a tribute show every Friday evening, highlighting a Top 40 radio station from the 60s. There was one specifically for WEAM in 2005, and one in 2006 for WPGC, WEAM, and WBIG. The latter was put together when WBIG, formerly the oldies station in the DC area, changed formats to, “The Greatest Rock and Roll of All Time”, in 2006. You can buy these programs on CD from Vuolo Video Air-Chex:

Look for it under, “GREAT STATIONS OF THE SIXTIES ON XM AVAILABLE ON CD”. It’s a lot of 60s music, but there are also original station air-checks, promos, jingles, commercials, and even some of the old DJs.
