“Bleecker in your Speaker”

Contributor Steve Bleecker is featured here in this short example of the relatively short-lived Oldies format at the former WGY-FM 99.5. Licensed to Schenectady NY, this signal serves the Albany/Troy market in upstate New York.

This is a clean, interference free recording made by our Contributor. We don’t have anything else here of this era of 99.5. The competition was fierce between WGY-FM and 98.3 WTRY, and both radio stations evolved out of their AM sister stations – WGY-FM from what became News/Talk 81 WGY and WTRY from 980 WTRY, one of Albany’s original, long running Top 40 stations of the 1960s and 1970s.

Steve Bleecker going by the name of Steve Novak. He is currently retired and living in California.
