7. WABC TOP 100 OF 1968 SEGMENTS (15 minutes). From a very recently unearthed reel-to-reel tape recorded by me during Christmas week of 1968. Collectors of unscoped only airchecks beware, but others might enjoy this. What's here are the introductions to FIFTY-TWO songs of the WABC Top 100 of 1968. The intro's include the prerecorded "WABC Superhit of the year number...", the DJ announcing the survey number and usually giving the title, artist and commentary / humor. A few seconds of the song is heard, then it cuts off and on to the next one. DJ's heard are Dan Ingram, Bruce Morrow, and Roby Yonge. [Dan announces the #92 song as Johnny Nash's "Hold My Tights", and #49 as "The Good, The Bad, And The Ingram". Roby fumbles with some of the survey numbers.] The original tape was made using the very sophisticated technique of holding a microphone up to the radio speaker :-) and the sound quality varies from good to fair. It's a fun listen though, and out of the 52 songs heard, there are only two duplicates. This means that 50 (a full HALF) of the Top 100 of 1968 songs are heard introduced.

8. WNEW-FM TRIBUTE TO MUSICRADIO WABC, upon its change to talk radio. 05/16/82 160:00 Hosted by Dennis Elsas. Airchecks and interviews with Dan Ingram, Bruce Morrow, Chuck Leonard, Scott Muni, Bob Lewis, Herb Oscar Anderson, and PD Rick Sklar. Ads scoped.
