Composite: 68 WRKO Boston | September 1975
Was 1975 really that long ago? I mean, really. We were just kids. Summers were hot, our parents not too old and we went everywhere on vacation. I always had a radio wherever we went. And I swear, everywhere east of my hometown picked up WRKO.
this sounds so NORMAL to me. I must’ve been at that age when my eyes opened up to everything around me. Because everything seems right.
The composite sure sounds right – pure WRKO Music People. Uncle Dale Dorman (that same Uncle Dale) heard in between cartoons on Channel 56, Johnny Dark, J.J. Jordan, Harry Nelson, J.J. Wright, Eric Chase. These guys played music all night and all day. There were no purity products to sell or people talking about Elvis sightings, Just all the fun that a hot weekend in New England could bring.

“I need to Publicly say “Thanks Much” to Mr. Henry Frick, who is now retired, and living with his wife of many years, in Ft. Worth Texas. Before his long and Successful Career in Railroading…Henry and I were Curry College Buddies in Milton, Mass., and so many of the tapes I now have been able to share were given to me many years ago…and were painstakingly recorded by Henry, either while he was at school, in Milton, or in Greenwich, Conn., at his parent’s home. So…we are so Very Grateful, Henry ! Thank You !”
