It’s 1969. The last 12 months have been very turbulant. We went through the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., & Robert Kennedy. We had just finished with the presidential election of 1968. Vietnam was raging, & Big Dan and WABC offered us a diversion from all the craziness of the late 60s. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, & Motown rule the airwaves, and Dan Ingram is “laughing & scratching” in the afternoon on WABC. Dan Ingram is up to his usual antics on this air check, as 77 WABC is running on all cylinders! For many, this is the best loved era of WABC.
A friend passed this aircheck to me almost 40 years ago, and I believe it was recorded off of the board in the WABC studio. The audio is very clean.
If you close your eyes, and let the audio soak in, it’s almost 1969 all over again! -Ellis
