Ellen Rockwell, WFLY FLY-92 Troy (Albany) | January 27, 1998

WFLY 92.3

Description by Steve West:

Yes, WFLY was a huge powerhouse station, from the early 80s on, and this time, we hear Ellen Rockwell on FLY-92! She does one of Leeza Gibbons’ Entertainment Tonight reports during her show! Now, correct me if I’m wrong (and you will…), I thought Gibbons was on WXKS-FM (Medford / Boston) in the 80s before her career really soared! Perhaps I’m thinking of Lisa Lips. Ellen Rockwell… voice sounds so much like Gibbons! No matter. This is an outstanding aircheck for a number of reasons. First, the year is 1998 and WFLY has fantastic local talent. Second, listen for REVERB!!! Third, this is a super-clean, HD quality recording! The tape survived 10 years of abuse and sounds great.

  1. Wow! Hey–that’s me! What a blast from the past–thanks so much for posting it! Listening makes me really miss radio. Thanks again!

  2. FYI, my father (Dave Ridgeway Sr.) was DJ Johnny Lance one of the original 92FLY rock DJ’s. He still lives in Albany and owned a Mobil gas station on Clinton and Quail Street before selling it in 1987. He is now retired.
