Banana Bill, 105.7 WVBF Framingham (Boston) | February, 1975

105.7 Framingham, 105.7 Boston, WVBF, Stereo 105

Who in the world is “Banana Bill”? Well, it’s either my dreadful hearing (old age sucks) or his mumbling and that’s what it sounds like.

Here’s eight minutes of a decent quality recording of WVBF with its original Heller jingles (legendary in their own right) in the middle of it’s very successful Top 40/Album Rock era. And there’s lots of cuts in here that you might remember… or might not. A dead segue from a hard rock cut into Barry Manilow’s “Weekend In New England” was striking, even for it’s time!

    This is Benevolent Bill Freeman. He was on VBF for a few years. Mostly overnight, but in 75 he was moved to 7Pm to Mid. I also think he worked at WMMS in Cleveland.
