Bobby Jay Composite, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | May 4, 1993 & June 2, 1995

“… Not only you’re my favorite DJ, you’re my favorite bass man as well…” Bobby Jay has always been one of our all-time personal favorite CBS-FM jocks. Your curator got to know Bobby when we were both on RadioMaxMusic internet radio. There is simply NO ONE around who knows 1950s Do-Wop music better than Bobby Jay! This is a composite aircheck, put together by our Contributor Steven Green. It combines two different broadcasts, the first from 05.07.1993 and the second from 06.02.1995. The quality is okay. It certainly could have been better, but you know… recording quality depends upon the head alignment of the recording device and sometimes minute flaws in the cassette shell casing will make a tape sit on the heads just a bit off center, thus, you he...

Bob Shannon with Freddie “Boom Boom” Cannon, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | February 4, 1995

From a cassette tape played with Dolby II (R) Noise Reduction ON (by mistake, I had intended to play back without NR as usual because I reduce noise digitally to keep the audio range as good as possible), here’s Bob Shannon’s weekend show on CBS-FM, and he certainly does not disappoint! Doing a special edition of his famous “Behind The Hits” segment, Shannon plays host, via telephone, to Freddie “Boom Boom” Cannon, who was one of the pre-psychedelic 1960s artists who rose to prominence along such artists as the Beach Boys, and so on. Without giving it away, you really must listen to this, as Bob Shannon (Don Bombard) and Cannon talk as if they are best friends… and they very well may be! This is a wonderful recording, a gift to us from Contributor ...

Bill Brown, WCBS-FM New York | July 12, 1971

Date of Recording: 07.12.1971 Station: 101.1 WCBS-FM New York, New York, USA Format: Oldies Owner: CBS, Inc. Featured Air Personality: Bill Brown Contributor: Steven Green Comments: There are few recordings out there from before the Oldies format took hold at WCBS-FM. Still, many do remember the somewhat-progressive Rock format which was heard at 101.1 FM prior to 1972. Its an odd format that took many elements of AM top 40 radio – the jock talking over the music, Jingles, and one or two spots every other record or so. Hardly what one remembers as progressive rock. But what makes this stand out is the playlist. No doubt, Bill Brown is picking much of the music himself. Some album songs, a few hits (Its nice to hear “Mercy, Mercy Me from Marvin Gaye), and some low charting music...
