Dan Taylor; 40th Anniversary Broadcast, Part 2 – 101.1 WCBS-FM New York | July 6, 2012

Dan Taylor says he got his start in radio right there at WCBS-FM, just two years out of high school in 1978. That’s a wow moment for me, having discovered Taylor on 1050 WHN in the 80s. And of course, he was a major part of the old WNBC “Time Machine” broadcasts in 1987-88. Taylor never mentions his other radio accomplishments, being that this is a celebration of 40 years as “New York’s Oldies Station”.

Being that this is the morning show, there are all the typical program elements that go into the program including news (from the WCBS 880 newsroom these days), Traffic and Mr. G’s weather. Memorable guests on the program include one of the former program directors of WCBS-FM (just a tease here, listen for it), former jock Dick Heatherton, and more! And it seems that every few minutes there’s a short aircheck featuring a jock from the past, and if you listen carefully, you’ll hear classic airchecks from Bobby Jay and Dan Ingram, along with some other great jocks! Taylor even plays the aircheck of his very first break on CBS-FM!
These segments are posted out of order, but for the purposes of our presentation, this is Part 2 of CBS-FMs 40th Anniversary. Stand by for more as we celebrate 40 years of New York’s Greatest Oldies Station!

Where’s the Play Button? It works fine on all the other parts, but not here.
