Bruce Morrow, 77 WABC New York | May, 1969

While WABC was nearly always nicely polished, Bruce Morrow’s night show was, well, not quite as polished in it’s presentation. But Cousin Brucie’s personality more than any other, shone through brightly. So much so, that in 1969, Morrow was carrying about 66 percent of all listeners in New York at any given time 7-10 pm! With that accomplishment, Morrow could pretty much do whatever he wanted on the air. What he did, was be the warm and kind ‘cousin’ to the kids. Truly a friend on the radio that they listened to loyally, night after night.

This tape is in bad shape, with a lot of drop outs and fades. But thanks to the historic nature of this show, it’s posting as is. Enjoy and Comment!

  1. Recorded either off the board or off WABC-FM. Well, maybe off the board, as WABC-FM was a progressive-rock station at the time. But, then, it may have switched back to the AM simulcast (minus the reverb, which was on WABC-AM only) from Cousin Brucie’s early-evening show until, say, late the following morning.
