This Series was originally broadcast in the Summer of 2011, so kindly add 4 years to all dates I say.
As the 49th Anniversary of WOR-FM's July 30th 1966 debut on the air approaches, I'll continue with some fun old Airchecks and Music ONLY from 1967 and Before.
And I know there are radio freaks like myself who LOVE those old airchecks.
In many cases they bring back happier times just as much as Music does!
The strike was settled, and the DJ's began on Oct. 8th 1966...a Saturday...very odd!
They were feeling their way around as most of us would starting a new job, probably not aware of their iconic status as Firsts.
Scott Muni and Murray the "K" in particular had to re-invent themselves, not be the Top 40 people they were remembered as.
They did so very nicely, and by the time I got an FM Radio were almost totally different- much more likable, laid back and friendly.
And they played music AM Radio wouldn't go near!
Enjoy the memories, or make some new ones!
