4 thoughts on “Chuck Leonard, MusicRadio 77 WABC | Summer, 1979


  1. WABC’s signal flooded into Montreal after sunset … I was a teenager listening to Chuck Leonard every night from 10-midnight … he was an early influence … inspired me to pursue a career in radio …


  2. Chuck was a great guy and a great friend. I was only sixteen when I met him. He lived in the apartment next to my girlfriend, Marlene, in Lefrak City, Queens. He would have us come up to the studio and pick out oldies to play. It was funny how the guard at WABC would stop us in the lobby and ask where we were going, being so young and dropping in at 11PM. He’d call Chuck in the studio and would get a surprised look on his face when Chuck would tell him, “Send them right up!” He also took us with his family to ‘The Big Break’ finals at Carnegie Hall.

    When I went into the Marine Corps in 1969, I always dropped in to visit him and his family when home on leave. The night before I left for Viet Nam, Chuck took me out on the town and went to Maxwell Plum. What a decent, down to earth human being. He was a great friend. I loved him very much.


  3. I meet him because i went to Jr high school with his daughter Dartanaya and my sister went out with his son Michael.We lived in Lefrak and were always at there apartment. Always wondered what happened to them.
