Joe Martelle, Rock & Roll Reunion, 98.5 WROR Boston Pt. 2 | March 17, 1985

Posting out of order, here’s part two of a two part aircheck of Joe Martelle’s “Saturday Night at the Oldies”, which ran for many years on the old 98.5 WROR. This event was actually an all-weekend affair, with former RKO jocks and some others coming in to join Martelle on the air. It made for very exciting radio! In this segment, guest jocks include J.J. Jeffrey, Dan Donovan (WMEX, WFIL) and the musician Little Anthony. Listen for lots of old WROR jingles and imaging, and a special ‘aircheck montage’ put together by Joe Martelle’s morning news guy Lou Josephs.

Special emphasis is given to WROR’s sister station, 68 WRKO, as many of the personalities featured here were on WRKO during the years when WROR was an automated Oldies station during the 60s and early/mid 70s.

The full story ‘behind the story’ is yet to come… in part 1, which will post later.

    I was the apd and music director at this point in time. The montage was from airchecks and jingles I had collected. A splice job that I four tracked to clean it up.
