Ed Williams on WCBS-FM New York | July 10, 1972 – Reloaded

Ed Williams is doing the overnight show and this is SO laid back! Lots of do-wop songs in format, and while it’s cool to hear, certainly way out of place is hearing “If” by Bread, a then-current song back in ’72.
Also heard toward the end of this aircheck, Bill Gillian with the news. Obviously the format was in it’s beginnings since the first element in the newscast is news from that date 10 years ago (a nuclear test explosion). You’ll hear about a total eclipse occurring in NYC and seen around North America this date before the recording runs out.
