As the 45th Anniversary of WOR-FM's July 30th 1966 going on the air approaches, I'll continue with some fun old airchecks and music only from 1967 and before.

These next final episodes in the Celebration Of America, will not all be so warm and fuzzy.
But make no mistake, I LOVE my country!
First off in Pt. 3, a good long set of music regarding the American Dream- which will include a duet by Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan that you may not have been aware of.
I have some…

Well, we are gonna play them.
We will have a little more trivia.

We will conclude this chapter with a song that was a huge hit in the 60’s, that…
