    1. Jimmy that was one of those ‘tried to be funny’ on the air and it bombed. Nobody could be Dan Ingram nor should they try. This is the end result of someone with a slower brain than Big Dan!! LOL

  1. While Bob Dayton will always be remembered for the mistake he made on WABC in 1965, he sounds great on CBS-FM.

    The jingles that were heard on this aircheck continued to be used when Harry Harrison became the morning man in 1980 and for a while after that.

    It’s airchecks like this one that remind me and I’m sure many others why we were loyal CBS-FM listeners for years.

  2. Above all, it was the MUSIC on CBS-FM. Especially around the late 1970’s. Unlike most oldies stations, CBS-FM played “Future Gold.” Two current hit songs an air at fifteen after and fifteen to the hour. Most hours, they also played two “recent gold” songs. Songs that were a hit between six months and two years ago. Their blend of big hits, lesser hits, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s was the best mix I ever heard on an oldies station.

    Also loved their jingles and their disc jockeys were completely up to the job and often enthusiastic about the music that they played. My favorite jock there was Dick Heatherton (PM Drive 1972-1985).

    I loved listening to WCBS-FM 101 for so many years.
