Memorial Day Remembrances – WABC Rewound 2007 – Hour 1

770 New York WABC Ross & Wilson Dan Ingram Ron Lundy

For eight years, from 1999 to 2007, NewsTalk 77 WABC New York took one day out of the year to remember it’s historic music radio format. It was a treat for listeners, and while pre-produced by then Production Director Johnny Donovan (himself a jock during the MusicRadio 77 years), it also gave the talk show hosts the Memorial Day holiday off.

Once again, we here at Airchexx would like to present portions of these programs for your Memorial Day enjoyment. Some of you will have the time to sit in front of a computer or mobile device and listen today, others will listen at a later time. But please take the time out both to honor those who fought and never returned for our freedoms, and those who entertained us as the very best American radio had to offer.

November 21, 1981. This hour is dedicated to the “Middle of the Road” version of WABC – “New York’s Radio Station”. You’ll hear Ross & Wilson, Ron Lundy and Johnny Donovan, and the AC hits of the day.
