Don K. Reed’s Doo Wop Shop Christmas Special, 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | December 24, 1994

Don K. Reed features two Christmas oriented Do-Wop albums this particular night, and while it’s not all Christmas music, there’s plenty peppered in on this Christmas Eve, 1994. This recording came by way of a mislabeled cassette. The recording, we know was from the Saturday night Do Wop Shop prior to Christmas day, which, in 1994, was Saturday, December 24th. How lucky to have this show fall on the one-night one wants to be home with the family, but such is life in the world of radio broadcasting!

Date of Recording: 01.15.1989 Station: 101.1 WCBS-FM New York (Website) (Wikipedia) Format: Oldies Branded: “New York’s Oldies Station” Featured Air Personalities: Bobby Jay, Don K. Reed Contributor: Big Apple Airchecks Total Time: 27:51 (Telescoped) Airchexx Entry: 1,555 “Bringing the Memories on a Sunday Night here on the Do-Wop Shop…” Curator’s Notes: The most difficult part of being the curator of this online museum is finding adequate words to describe some of our airchecks. This one is especially difficult, because, not only is the audio fidelity nearly perfect, the program itself is quite rare. When WCBS-FM returned with its modified Classic Hits format from Jack-FM, one of the popular shows that did not return was the Do-Wop Shop. Don K. Re...
