For eight years, from 1999 to 2007, NewsTalk 77 WABC New York took one day out of the year to remember it’s historic music radio format. It was a treat for listeners, and while pre-produced by then Production Director Johnny Donovan (himself a jock during the MusicRadio 77 years), it also gave the talk show hosts the Memorial Day holiday off. This year for 2019, WABC is re-airing portions of previous Rewound programs on Labor Day. We aren’t sure why they picked Labor Day, but the station has been sold to Red Apple Media from its former owner, Cumulus. We think this is a tremendously good sign, that the new ownership is starting out by paying honor to the station’s Music Radio past!

In honor of that, we here at Airchexx are once again presenting WABC’s Rewound program from the year 2007. All 12 hours were donated to us on CD from WABC’s “Restorian” Rob Frankel. I (Steve West) am so very thankful to Rob and his thoughtfulness!

If everyone donated just a little bit, we could fund this site for several years. But everyone doesn’t support us. Airchexx.com exists as an educational site dedicated to the preservation of the art of Radio Broadcasting. We intend to stay online as long as possible. That’s where you come in. Won’t you consider a small donation to help defray our costs? This online audio museum is free to use, but it’s not free. Someone has to pay for it. If you have the means, and you enjoy this online museum, you may donate using the following PayPal link. Thank you.




Some of you will have the time to sit in front of a computer or mobile device and listen today, others will listen at a later time. But please take the time out to honor those who fought and never returned for our freedoms, those who work a 40 hour week and even long hours of overtime to feed their families and keep America moving, and those who entertained us as the very best American radio had to offer. WABC Rewound addresses all three of those categories!

Details:

November 21, 1981. This hour is dedicated to the “Middle of the Road” version of WABC – “New York’s Radio Station”. You’ll hear Ross & Wilson, Ron Lundy and Johnny Donovan, and the AC hits of the day.

    I remember Ross & Wilson at Z93 for years. I talked to Brian once, and he commented on
    working at WABC was great, but all the other things like $400 a month for parking
    quickly got old—:>
