Thanks to longtime Contributor Steven Green, Legendary Deejay Dan Ingram is the subject of this 26 minute composite of his air work on 77 WABC New York.

This spans about a year an a half, from 1965 to sometime later in 1966.

This is an absolutely ORIGINAL recording, made by our contributor on his reel-to-reel deck. That means this has not been heard anywhere else before, since the original broadcasts.

Its ALL 1960s WABC, scoped down by our Contributor, and including tons of mid-60s commercials and TONS of PAMS jingles! Listen as Big Dan ad-libs his way through a lot of live commercials, like Castro Convertible, etc. And if you REALLY want to laugh… towards the end of this, Dan sing’s along with Herb Oscar Anderson’s “Hello Again”, to roaring laughter in the studio!

One thing you will notice here is the freedom Dan Ingram had to talk over everything – commercials, jingles.. even news elements! This Dan Ingram sounds out of control compared to the mature Dan Ingram we hear in late 70s and the AC WABC 1980s. It is an incredible listen, and tells one a LOT about how WABC sounded just prior to – or perhaps, during the period of its highest popularity in the Tri-State area

Perhaps instead of your webmaster attempting to describe this, you should just listen to the MAGIC that was 77 WABC and the antics of a young Dan Ingram!

Unfortunately, no Action Central News except a few seconds of the end of a newscast in a few places.
