Chuck Leonard

Chuck Leonard, 77 WABC New York | November 2, 1975

“WABC New York, All you Need to Win! Curator’s Notes: You’ll note right off that election day is coming up. Even if there wasn’t a label on the source recording, we would have known that the date of this broadcast was 11/2/75. Chuck Leonard did Sundays, along with his night shift in 1975 and he clearly says it’s morning.

WABC Rewound 2007 – Hour 7

Right off the bat to start things off, the cart machine sticks on Chuck Leonard. You won’t hear that these days with everything hard drive based!
