Every now and then a new WABC aircheck appears out of the woodwork. From contributor Paul Ford is this brief composite of a day on the air at MusicRadio 77 starting with Harry Harrison in the morning, then moving on to the late, great Ron Lundy, Dan Ingram, Cousin Brucie, Chuck Leonard and even Jay Reynolds! The audio quality is superb, as is the reverb and those great PAMS jingles used in ’72!

  1. Fantastic! Thanks so much Steve, this is great.

    Dan Ingram seemed to have played Kansas City quite often in 1972.

    I remember that WABC started playing more 1950’s songs to counter competition from the new format at 101 FM. They gave up on that around a year later.

  2. I remember hearing an unscoped (except for the songs, of course) version on the old (1999-2008)”WABC Rewound” retrospective that was broadcast every Memorial Day. On the 2000 edition of the special, to be exact. This is the 1972 sales demo that was featured, as I said, on the 2000 edition of “Rewound”.
