8 thoughts on “Bill Houston, 92.1 WLNG “The Sound of Long Island” Sag Harbor NY | Sometime 1992

  1. Two Years later in 1994, Bill would move on to replace Jack Spector who at the time passed away on the air at Long Islands 1100 AM WHLI “Adult Standards” format.Bill held the afternoon PM drive for the next 12 years working for former WMCA “Good Guy” Dean Anthony who was the program director.

    1. In 1985 to 1986 Bill worked at station
      WNAQ “Stereo 1380” in Waterbury,Conn.That’s the only station I recall in Waterbury.In 1988-1989 he was at
      station WXCT New Haven,Conn.

  2. The biggest difference between LNG in the 90s and today is that back then, they played a lot of current hits. Today, it’s all oldies.

    Many in the industry do not acknowledge the success of WLNG because the presentation is different than what is heard everywhere else on the dial.

    This is wrong because LNG has been commercially viable since 1963 when they began on AM only at 1600.

    The FM on 92.1 would sign on a few years later and in 1997, WWRL New York got exclusive use of 1600 and WLNG-AM along with a couple of other stations close by on 1590 disappeared forever.

    Bill Houston sounds good and so does the jingles, the music selection etc.

    1. WLNG, as late as 1999 played 50% current hits. They sometimes called themselves, “old hit, new hit L-N-G.” I made airchecks of them in the 1990’s while visiting my grandparents in East Hampton, six miles from the transmitter.
