5 thoughts on “Charlie Greer, 77 WABC New York | October 5, 1965

  1. “Winston tastes good like a cigarette should” I was 3 when this aircheck was made but I still remember that jingle in later years before cigarette ads were banned. My late father smoked Winston but I never picked up the habit thankfully. Funny thing was three decades later I wound up working for a division of Winston’s competitor.

  2. one of my all-time thrills was being able to sit in the studio and watch Charlie’s show. I had written to him asking about a station tour when I was visiting NYC in the spring of 1966. He wrote back saying to let him know when I was going to be in town. WABC at the time I believe was at 7 W.66th St. I showed up and Charlie ushered me into the studio. What a nice guy! I spent an hour watching his show. He made it look effortless.

  3. The “spot-load was sold out” as this was when Charlie was back in Mid-Days (after the Bob Dayton “Pearl Harbor” fiasco)–and quite frankly this aircheck HAS “been around” at LEAST 15 years that I KNOW of.
