This Series was originally broadcast in the Summer of 2011, so kindly add 4 years to all dates I say.
No theme, group or artist featured for the next few weeks- but a Radio Station!
A now-defunct Radio Station, WOR-FM, that had really only about 14 months of glory- and sadly, it's call letters no longer even exist.
But it was the First Commercial FM to play Rock & Roll, and it laid the groundwork for what was later to be regarded as the best Rock Station Ever, WNEW-FM.
WOR-FM debuted on July 30, 1966, now 49 years ago.
The year before, the FCC made a ruling that made this extraordinary event possible.
And I will play the first song they played on that historic day.
The words GROOVE, GROOVY, and particularly HAPPENING will pop up frequently during these shows, lol!
For oldsters and youngsters alike, I invite you to join me, because "The Sound Is WOR-FM...New York!"
And here are the Groovy, Happening links to Those Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
