Big Jay Sorensen & The WNBC Time Machine | October 6, 1988

This includes just about every element that listeners loved about the Time Machine. The great music of the 60s, a GREAT jock (actually, THE jock who invented the Time Machine format), lots of interaction with listeners - phone bits are everywhere, and Big Jay's "Record Pig" segment. You just have to listen to understand it.
Wolfman Jack

EJ (Joe) Crummey Produces and Co-Hosts the Wolfman Jack Show, 66 WNBC New York | February, 1986, Part 1

Listen to how Crummey's banter and production skills make this show sound 100% live, local and relevant. This is quite amazing, especially when one realizes that in the mid-1980s, computer automation was still more than a decade away, and producing a show such as this required precision timing, quick thinking and a lot of cart (tape) machines!
