Hey Cliffy!

We are always in the mood for anything back from the WABC music radio days!

Still miffed they went all talk -
They could have at least kept some time-slots Top-40.

I woke up to 77-WABC, listened to it during the day, in the evenings and even left it on during the overnight. 4th of July and summer picnics were never the same.

That was New York radio! Best DJs ever!

Anyone catch that new show Life From Mars? A detective gets thrown back in time to 1973. Pretty cool - they do a pretty good job of making it appear 1973. I think next week is the series finale unfortunately.

Aaaaaaa-ooooooo

I can still hear Wolfman (Jack).
We need to do a tribute

Wolfman Jack was on NBC right?

Life on Mars was a great show sadly a short run.

I was going to comment about how the birth rate went up 9 months after, but glad I checked on Snopes.com, they were within the normal range.

That's what I love about the internet, finding out if urban legends are true or not.

Steve I think so - but when I thought of Wolfman Jack - it was mainly a random fond memory that got swapped back into core when I thought about great radio and all the great DJs of that era.

Naaa-naaa-na!

Keep them coming Cliffy! I love listening to these. Because it's radio I usually open a different window to browse something else and listen.
