Dick Summer, “New York 97” WYNY (97.1) | 1979

A recent contribution from Ray Bozzanca, this scoped recording of fan favorite Dick Summer on the old AC station WYNY from 1979 when it was still at 97.1 FM.

This is somewhat of a disappointment, since much of Summer’s content was edited out of the original recording. Frankly, I’m surprised that more airchecks don’t come in this way, since many of us recorded the radio for the music, not the DJ patter. Still, there’s enough of Summer’s personality coming through to make this a worthwhile aircheck.

Surprisingly, we get about two minutes of WYNY news at the 3/4 mark of this recording. No commercials, but you will hear a few old WYNY jingles. Notice the music. Barry Manilow, Dolly Parton, and lots of Beatles. This was Gold-Based AC before the term existed.
