Murray The K, 1010 WINS New York | March 17, 1961

Here’s something given to us a few years ago by Contributor Ray Bozzanca, recorded onto one of his reels. The audio quality is not that good but the historical value certainly IS! Listen for old Dodge car commercials, pimple cream commercials… lots […]

Dick Bartley, “Saturday Night Classic Countdown”; 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | February 13, 2011

Contributor Scott Lowe gave us this perfect recording of Dick Bartley’s “Classic Countdown” on CBS-FM. One of the really cool features of this is the fact that Bartley did this show for CBS-FM, and it’s not some syndicated show that he did […]

Steve Bleecker, 1460 WAXC Rochester | Fall, 1977

The WAXC call letters in Rochester NY have been gone for so long they don’t even show up in the FCC’s historical database. Too bad, for a station that sounded this good. We’re in 1977 and Contributor Steve Bleecker sent this in […]

Tape recordings are an amazing thing. Someone hit the ‘record’ button at random, and at times, such as this, we get to hear something quite amazing. That this tape survived all these years is amazing in and of itself! Recorded just about […]
