Steve Novack, Oldies 99.5 WGY-FM Albany (Schenectady) NY | 1992
Wow…it’s mid February- early March 1992, and I’m Doing weekends at THE Legendary WGY…The “FM Side” ! So COLD to get into my Car in Albany…and Drive to Schenectady , in Frigid Early Saturday /Sunday Morning Temperatures…But SO COOL to walk past the WGY On-Air Studio of so MANY Radio Legends ! At the time, Don Weeks did Weekday Mornings…but, on the WEEKEND mornings…I would “Wave” to Paul Cassidy (Tragically, Paul passed away just a few years later…Heart Surgery, that went Devastatingly Wrong…R I P, Dear Paul…such a very nice man…very well liked ! His “on air”personality was so real…and… Genuine…He would occasionally walk “down the hall, to say “Hi” to me, after I got MY show “going”) You see…I had been OUT of “radio” for NINE Years ! After that JBQ “thing”….I NEVER wanted to “see” a Radio Microphone again ! Or , So I THOUGHT ! Enjoy !
This is a ‘traditional’ Oldies station, in the respect that Oldies 99-5 played mainly hits from the 1960s and 70s, unlike most Oldies stations today which play mainly 70s/80s hits.
The station is now AAA 99-5 The River WRVE.
