One great thing about WCBS-FM has always been the incredible consistency about their programming. This sounds much as CBS-FM does today – and perhaps it’s because at this time, in 1978, CBS-FM was formatted more like a Gold-Based AC instead of a pure Oldies station (although, I don’t believe Tavares “It Only Takes A Minute” was ever considered to fit the old AC format back then). To be sure, CBS’s Oldies format was still much in its infancy and was tailored to New York City. But it sounds GREAT here! Dick Heatherton, the “Leader of Lasagnaland” makes for one great personality (and was fondly remembered recently at CBS-FM’s 40th Anniversary celebration).
