  1. He currently hosts three uplifting radio programs – The Urban AC Countdown, Gospel Traxx, Making It Happen and the Countdown with Walt Baby Love. Walt is heard on over 200 radio stations.
    // He is also an ordained minister!

    Worked with Walt at WXLO, 99X, New York in 1974-75 as News Director of this legendary station, made even more memorable by Walt!

    1. Actually, at the time of this recording, Michigan didn’t observe daylight saving time. There were several states back then that didn’t do the time change. I live in Florida, and we didn’t observe it until 1966.

  2. I grew up listening to Walt “Baby” Love on top-40 WOR-FM/WXLO and, later, even pop adult (or soft rock or contemporary MOR or whatever adult contemporary was called at the time) WNBC.

  3. I remember the “West Coast vs. East Coast Dragster Championship” being advertised on New York City top-40 stations as coming to National Speedway on Long Island (NYC’s eastern suburbs’ version of New Jersey’s Raceway Park (of “HA-hahahahahahaha!RACEwayyyy PARK!!” radio-commercial fame), itself advertised heavily on New York Top 40 radio back in the day.

  4. Listened to The Big Eight across the Lake in Erie Pa. While I attended Gannon College. The greatest station I have ever enjoyed listening to, then one day it was gone, memories still live on.
