Alison Steele, “The New Groove” – 102.7 WNEW-FM New York | February 11, 1969

“You need a nice, hot, cup of coffee     Curator’s Notes: Perhaps the only thing that would make this absolutely perfect, as airchecks go, would be if it was unscoped. Technically, I could probably get away with that, since songs recorded before 1972 don’t require royalty payments. One day I’ll investigate that. Meantime, listen to the jock known affectionately as...

William B. Williams Farewell; Bob Jones, WNEW 1130 New York, Part 2 | August 3, 1986

… There’s only one. WNEW Eleven Three Oh in New York. There was, until 1992. Not counting it’s sister Album Oriented Rock FM station on 102.7, WNEW (AM) was the most unique radio station in America. To be sure, there were radio stations, primarilly on the AM dial, which played American Standards, but most of those were either some sort of automated jukebox, or part of the nationa...

William B. Williams Farewell; Bob Jones, WNEW 1130 New York, Part 1 | August 3, 1986

Somewhere, in some vault, there is a master recording of this tribute to the late William B. Williams. But, for this website dedicated to classic radio, perhaps it’s better that we present the following original ‘off the air’ recording, made by Contributor Ira Warren Patasnik on a simple table radio.. CORRECTION (10/27/10) – Our Contributor actually has a nice recording set...

Eddy Gallagher, 97.1 WASH-FM Washington DC | Winter, 1979

Courtesy of our largest Contributor (so far), Big Apple Airchecks, here’s something people likely haven’t heard in a very long time. 97.1 WASH-FM has been doing Soft Rock, or, more properly, “Adult Contemporary” for a very long time and we look back now to the Winter of 1979 for this clip. Thinking the month of February here, because on the master tape this came from, the n...

Jonathan Schwartz, “A Tribute To Baseball”, WNEW (AM) New York | January 31, 1988

Here’s something totally different. About four years before AM 1130 changed to Business News Radio WBBR, WNEW was programming ‘other’ things besides American Popular Standards. Jonathan Schwarz was an incredibly talented personality, and one whose name is very familiar, seems to not be nearly as memorable as the Rock N Roll variety of jocks. I think that’s a bit unfair. If ...

Mark Simone, WNEW Stereo 1130 New York | Undated

We can’t pin down the date of this – but perhaps someone can. Mark Simone is the personality for this, the last and best era at the great Eleven Three Oh WNEW. I’m guessing it’s sometime in the 80s. Andy Williams is Simone’s call-in guest. What a well-done radio station this was! WNEW was anything but boring, despite playing music that nobody under 40 would have been ...

New York City Blackout – Radio Coverage | July 13, 1977 – Reloaded

July… Heat, Humidity, Hot Dogs… you know the drill. Often, especially in the Northeast, one of those cool fronts brings relief but they also bring trouble. This particular night in 1977 is remembered by nearly every New Yorker around back then. It started off as a miserably hot day, then a BIG storm front blew in… but it was only one of a chain of events that would leave Big Appl...

Gene Klavan on WNEW 1130 New York | August 1975

This starts out with a very nice narration by our contributor, Ed Montgomery. Very tastefully done and we thank Ed for this wonderful look at a very unique radio station! One thing people remember about WNEW was the 15 or so year run that this station had as a pure, local, Standards station. What fewer people remember is when WNEW AM played some contemporary music. In fact, Metromedia had a very s...

William B. Williams Farewell: WNEW 1130 New York, Part 3 – August 3, 1986

From Ira Warren Patasnik, the third segment of this great tribute to legendary WNEW broadcaster William B. Williams, who passed away of complications from colon cancer on August 3, 1986. Bob Jones hosts the “Make Believe Ballroom” for this tribute to Mr. Williams, who had hosted the program up until his cancer surgery in 1985. Jones was considered a fill-in host up until this date, as ...
