What will you hear: Without giving it away, the highlights include calling WYSP Philadelphia trying to contact Joey Reynolds...
Gary Bridges was one of a large staff of known personalities, some of whom listeners had grown up with. Personalities such as Don Pardo (the voice of many of WNBC radio and television's promotions), Soupy Sales, who had been around in the 1950s and on television, Imus, who by this time was already an institution and the whole WNBC news department.
This format pre-dates the WNBC Time Machine by a little over a year, and this is probably a few months before Howard Stern was fired and replaced by the incredibly funny Joey Reynolds. Enjoy this slice of fantastic radio, provided for you free of charge!
J.R. Likes to say he worked on the 106.1 frequency "Seven formats and TEN sets of call letters ago" in 1984-85.
It seems like a lifetime ago. Boston Radio was exciting and while the city's original Oldies station was CHR at this time, Jor Martelle still reigned the king of all Oldies shows... Here was the first reunion!
The quality of this recording is outstanding. In fact it's so good, it may be the best AM stereo off-the-air recording ever made!
