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 ...

101.1 WCBS-FM Returns from Jack | July 12, 2007

When Dan Mason returned as President of CBS Radio in the Spring of 2007, the first thing he did was make it clear that many of the blunders of the past few years needed to be fixed. The “Free-FM” brand was slowly dissolved, leading to the return of K-Rock. San Francisco’s KFRC was relaunched on a new frequency just a few months after that station had dropped its heritage format. All that remained was dealing with that pesky Jack in New York. On July 12, 2007 at appropriately 1:01pm, Jack shifted over to 101.1’s HD-2 signal and made way for the return of a slightly modified WCBS-FM. Dan Taylor and Bob Shannon were brought back, but were joined by newcomers Broadway Bill Lee, Joe Causi and more 80’s music. This version is nearly 45 minutes long and includes a scoped last hour of Jack-FM and ...
