WABC 77 New York – Ross & Wilson – 1982
In 1981, you can feel the winds of change blowing at WABC. The music had moved from Top 40, to more of an Adult Contemporary direction. Information was becoming more important, and you could hear more talk on the station. One of the biggest changes at the station involved getting a new morning show that spent more time talking to listeners, rather than playing lots of music. In March of 1981, WABC brought in the morning team of Ross & Wilson from G-93 WZGC in Atlanta. Ross Brittain & Brian Wilson were different than anything we had ever heard on WABC. They spent most of their time talking about pop culture, news, & current events.
Ross & Wilson hosted mornings on WABC from 1981 until 1983. The two teamed up again on Z100 in the late 80s.
BTW, Brian Wilson’s new Book is out! 50 Stories: 50 Years In Radio, contains stories from Brian’s career.
Recorded in Philadelphia, so signal is less than perfect. -Ellis
