Composite: Dana Lauren, Brian Kelly & Dan Taylor, 1050 WHN New York | Sometime 1983

Here’s a look at early-80s WHN… there’s not much life left in the biggest and most memorable Country station New York ever had at this point, but it sounds SO good! The music is scoped, the jocks some of the most talented, […]

Peter Tripp, “Your Hits of the Year”, 1050 WMGM New York | December 31, 1959

To some, 1959 may seem like just yesterday, but this recording returns to a time when even in New York, everything was slower. WMGM 1050 owned by Metro Goldwyn Mayer (the film studios), was in a heated battle for the teen audience […]
