Big Jay Sorensen on the Time Machine: 66 WNBC New York: Summer 1988
Update: Re-issued on March 16, 2015. Dan Taylor (mentioned here) can be heard today on 101.1 WCBS-FM New York, middays right after Scott Shannon in the morning.
Perhaps one of the most popular features of WNBC during its final years on the air was the Time Machine. Overnights & Weekends were definitely a special time, as WNBC recreated the sound of its 60s and 70s crosstown rival, WABC. In your humble webmaster’s opinion, WNBC actually did a better job with the old format than WABC did originally, if that’s even possible.
While an assortment of big named jocks like Dan Taylor were often a feature of the Time Machine, Big Jay Sorensen (who became legendary from this program!) is heard on this 11 minute scope of pure heaven. Included: a full newscast and a great Record Pig feature!
