Bob Lewis, 95.5 WABC-FM New York | January 10, 1970

Bob “Bobaloo” Lewis was best known as one of the “All Americans” on 77 WABC (AM). Lesser known was the fact that he was also heard on the FM side. WABC-FM 95 1/2 was a Progressive Rock station. The format was called “Love”. It featured tons of album cuts from all the heavys of the time, Hendrix, the Doors, the Who, and many more similar artists which would becom...

Ed Williams, WCBS-FM New York | July 10, 1972

Courtesy of Contributor Henry Nelson (WHRK, WMC-FM), here’s one of the earliest incarnations that we can find of Oldies 101 WCBS-FM! Were it not for Bill Gilliam giving the date at the start of the 10pm newscast, we’d have guessed this aircheck to be from 1971 or so. Modern day programmers would cringe at Ed Williams’ delivery. Talking over the ends of songs, in most breaks, not ...

Bruce Morrow, WABC New York – 1969

There’s something about Cousin Brucie. People either loved him or weren’t crazy about him. Here’s Bruce Morrow at the peak of his popularity on WABC. Notice how fast Morrow is talking. Its hard to keep up with the pace of this show. And, that’s exactly what this is. A SHOW! There are more commercials and talk from Cousin Brucie than there is music, at least so it seems on t...

Listen how Dan Ingram weaves in and out of songs, sings along with commercials, and creates an atmosphere of hilarity for anyone listening to the big hits of that year. Note the continuous ...

NYC 80’s CHR Wars: Skyy Walker & Domino on 95.5 WPLJ

After WPLJ’s transition to CHR from AOR and prior to flipping to Hot AC, WPLJ was in direct CHR compeition with both WQHT and WHTZ, although the “Power 95” version of WPLJ was mixed a bit more hard-edged as the former two competitors, in the respect that on this aircheck in particular, there’s more hard rock than Z-100. Still, here is a station that STILL sounded great and ...

Willie B. Goode, 95.5 WPLJ New York | October 10, 1986

Power 95 is solidly CHR, but not yet Mojo Radio. The jingles will remind you that 95.5 was once WABC-FM, and looking back listening to this, its obvious that ABC was in some way trying to re-create the MusicRadio 77 magic on FM. At least to some small degree. Willie B is heard on part of this, then its the syndicated “Party America” with Fast Jimi Roberts (unmistakably, Jim Roberts the...
