Thanks to this late submission from our good friend “Magic” Matt over at Big Apple Airchecks, we can bring you a really GOOD, high quality recording of the late WNBC.

1978… probably the biggest year for Disco music, before the days of disco destruction… and here’s WNBC doing it’s best to compete with crosstown WABC. Good as it was, success was never achieved in this too-little-too-late attempt to gain the top 40 music crown, what, with WXLO and other FM stations swiftly coming up to oppose the few remaining music AM’s in the Big Apple. However, despite that background, listen to this aircheck! I think you’ll find the presentation better than most stations today… and even better than most Oldies stations. It sure was a different world in 1978!

Wow! Always great to hear Mike’s voice. So sad when he passed. I used to call in to the “_____ Night Live” shows as the “Crazed Impersonationist”, and called over 100 times! What phone bills, but I was 15, and didn’t have a job, so I didn’t have to pay! Talked to him about a year before he passed after I got into radio myself. Thanks for making this aircheck available!

I used to listen to Michael in the early eighties when he did a weekly show on WNBC of the top 40 hits in the New York area. The showed followed Casey Kasem’s American Top 40. I was only about 14 and was really just starting to love music. I spent hours listening to Michael. I don’t think people have that same love of radio these days: Too many choices and so little quality. I’m sorry to hear that he died.

In the early 1980’s I went to school in Springfield, MA and WNBC would come in at night. I often remember listening to Michael Sarzynski, especially on drives to and from home along I-91.

I do miss W NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN B C !!

I remember Michael Sarzynski’s top 30 countdown show that followed American Top 40 on Sundays. I also remember Michael’s final break on WNBC. He signed off with Barry Manilow’s Somewhere Down ther Road. It was like losing a long-time friend. R.I.P. Michael.

This guy was awesome on 660 I believe.. WNBC Ny. I do not think he was on that long but definitely long enough to give me a fond token of my teen years. Sorry he passed at such a young age. No doubt if he was alive I would try to friend him on FB and at the very least send him a nice message
