Roby Younge WABC

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!
