Harry Harrison, Musicradio 77 WABC New York | Dec 31 1975
Harry Harrison was New York’s “Morning Mayor.” He woke up ridiculously early in the morning for decades to wake New York, and help them start the day, with a positive word, & great music. Born and raised in Chicago, he got his start in radio at the age of 14 after being confined to his bed for a year with rheumatic fever. As a result, radio became his best friend. After spending a few years working on the radio in the midwest, Harrison moved to the Big Apple, where he spent 44 years with 57 WMCA, 77 WABC and 101 WCBS-FM, until his retirement in 2005. He is remembered for a number of phrases, including “Every brand new day should be opened like a precious gift!” In this aircheck, you’ll hear Harry from New Year’s eve, 1975.
This audio was replayed on WABC Rewound in 2007.
