1580 WPGC Morningside MD | 1960s Undated
Here’s something interesting that came in on a tape labelled simply “DC Radio, ETC..” This is a very high quality recording of the old 1580 WPGC / 95.5 Simulcast from sometime in the mid-1960s. This is really too short to extract much out of. You won’t hear the jock name, but you will get a generous dose of old jingles and some vintage Washington-area commercials. Anyone remember Glen Echo Amusement Park? Also, this is so old that we hear a very short 10 second or so ad for Newport Menthol Cigarettes!
Perhaps someone can nail the exact date for us… at least the correct year, which we guess is 1964. Someone in our audience always knows. Listen. And discuss.
