Dan Taylor; Weekend Time Machine, 66 WNBC New York | September 12, 1987

Frank Davis sent us a lot of WNBC Time Machine recordings. Enough so that we might end up with the world’s largest collection of WNBC’s Weekend Time Machine! As a side note, a basic google search brings up dozens of links to places selling, of all things, “Time Machine” airchecks on CD, youtube re-mixes of our WNBC content and more.  The web, being what it is, there’s...

Lee Sherwood, 93 KHJ Los Angeles | January 23, 1981

I wanna pay somebody’s rent this morning…..     Please make a donation in any amount to help defray our hosting costs “The New” 93 KHJ was just two months old when this recording was made. There is a bit of history mentioned on the news (read by Lee Marshall) with the story of the Iranian Hostages being released this particular day, and that day in history, “...

Charlie Cook, 1050 WHN New York | November 7, 1977

Charlie Cook is heard holding down the overnight on the old 1050 WHN, Running 30 minutes, scoped, you get the feel of how “New York’s Country Station” sounded in the second half of the 1970s. Notice what Country songs were being played. Much different than the fare being heard in the 80s, just a few years into the future. There was also an obvious lack of commercial content on WH...

Composite: WINS and WMGM New York | September 17, 1961

Date of Recording: 09.17.1961 Station(s): 1010 WINS / 1050 WMGM (WHN/WFAN/WUKQ/WEVD/WEPN) New York City, New York, USA Format: Top 40 Featured Air Talent: Various Contributor: Big Apple Airchecks Comments: This is a great comparison between two competing Top 40 stations. 1961 was so early in the top 40 game that WABC was just in its infancy with its then-new format. This recording doesn’t in...

WHN Billboard Station Composite | May 30, 1977

Apparently released as a promotional tool to radio stations (seems to me Radio and Records and/or some other publications did these back in the day), Billboard Magazine made this composite of Country station 1050 WHN New York. I originally guessed the date of this as Memorial Day 1976, but as visitor Joe Crain comments below, one reported news item specifically dates this as 1977. Read his comment...

Composite: 1050 WHN New York | February 9, 1976

Get ready to be entertained. Go pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit down and listen! Here’s an hour and a half of Country legend 1050 WHN. The first voice you hear is that of a relatively unknown Country Music singer known as Barbie Benton. She was better known for her appearances on Hee Haw, and even better known in her four separate appearances in the buff in Playboy magazine. She definitel...

Batt Johnson, WRVR/WKHK Country 106.7 New York | Undated

Originally posted on 10/15/04 in Real Audio format. No date given on this one. Batt Johnson (WNBC, WYNY) is heard on the Country incarnation of 106.7 under the WRVR, then WKHK calls. This is a very AC/MOR sounding Country format. Unable to penetrate the New York City market dominated by rival 1050 WHN, 106.7 would eventually flip to AC as WLTW, using the slogan “Lite FM” which is still...

Composite: 1050 WHN New York | 1980

It occurs to us in light of the brand new 94.7 Nash-FM in New York City, that there was a very successful Country station in the Big Apple some 30 plus years ago when the excitement was still on AM. Looking back, 1980 could be looked at as the era of the best ratings and highest popularity of WHN. Boasting a staff that included today’s WCBS-FM Morning man Dan Taylor, legendary Country person...

“Dandy” Dan Daniel hands Middays to Dan Taylor | December 31, 2002

Often, if not most times in radio, when a DJ disappears either because he quit or was fired, most people never know why until they read about it in the paper. Or hear it through the grapevine. Once in a while, however, there is mention of it on the air. In one of the most classy turnovers I’ve ever heard, “Dandy” Dan Daniel signs off and hands his afternoon show to Dan Taylor. Bo...

A sample of AM drive on 1050 WHN New York | 1986

In the waning days of Country music at WHN, here’s a look at how mornings sounded just before the end. By 1987, WHN would be gone, having flipped to All-Sports as 1050 WFAN, which would move the next year in what was known as the big switch, down to 660 upon the expiration of WNBC. But before the end came… listening to this aircheck, you’ll hear a who’s who of legendary dee...

Tom Anthony, 94.3 KIKF Garden Grove, CA | January 23, 1982

Upon receiving this aircheck from Contributor Jeffrey Holland, I wondered to myself, was there REALLY a Country music station in the Los Angeles area called KIK-FM? Indeed, there was. Not only that, but there’s actually an information page online written by someone who was there. Most stations not considered ‘legendary’, its hard to find any info. This aircheck was scoped by the ...
