Dan Taylor and the WNBC “Time Machine” | September 12, 1987
Its been said that nobody could imitate WABC’s Dan Ingram. If anyone could get close, though, Dan Taylor could. VERY close!
In this edition of the WNBC Time Machine, Larry Scott opens with News On The Hour featuring some interesting stories about people long gone now. Terri Raskin reports WNBC Traffic & Transit, then there’s WNBC Instant Weather from the National Weather Service. Then, there’s the Classic Hits of the 60s with Dan Taylor! Now, everything you hear, from the way the jingles are positioned to the drop-ins and Taylor’s sense of humor might not have intentionally mimicked Big Dan Ingram, but its an uncanny coincidence if not! In some ways, Dan Taylor does Ingram BETTER! No wonder Taylor was picked as WCBS-FM’s morning man for a couple of years before Scott Shannon arrived.
The aircheck closes with WNBC news, again. You’ll hear newsman Alan Walden (WBAL Baltimore) as a correspondence in New Orleans, attending a giant Mass celebrated by Pope John Paul (the FIRST!). Notice how the political issues haven’t changed all that much over the years…
