Continuing where Part 1 left off, Scott Shannon is given a huge welcome as the new host of the WCBS-FM Morning show!
WCBS-FM has come a long way from the days when “Jack” put an end to the Oldies of the 50s and 60s, and what wasn’t even mentioned on this first day (why would they?), there once was another ‘Shannon’ in the building – Bob Shannon, who re-signed on the Classic Hits version of CBS-FM only a few short years ago. Now, things have come full circle. Joe Nolan gives a beautiful welcome to his former Z100 partner. Joe’s CBS-FM’s Traffic guy. More antics from Weather guy “Mr. G”.
This portion of the Scott Shannon in the Morning show becomes a bit more music intensive after the 9:00 hour, but that doesn’t stop him from doing a couple more interviews. John Bon Jovi checks in to do a 10 minute bit with Shannon, as does Monkees frontman, and short time morning host of the ‘old’ WCBS-FM morning show, Mickey Dolenz! Dolenz was ousted when “Jack” came along.
In all, the final two hours of this first morning show are scoped down to just one hour for presentation, commercials and full songs removed for copyright reasons. “And now, ladies and gentlemen, serving the universe from the Greatest City in the world…. Scott Shannon, on WCBS-FM and H-D1 New York.. always on Radio.com!”
