The DJ is Conservative Talk Show Host Mark Simone. For those of us who grew up in the NY, NJ Metropolitan Area during the 60's and 70's , we all remember listening to, what are now considered oldies, on our transistor radios. Mark Simone has been hosting this show now for about 6 months and is doing a great job. He's interviewing the old singers, playing the old commercials, reminiscing about the culture of that time. It's a great show. Try to catch it..

It's on from 6 - 10 pm EST every Saturday Night.

Thanks for the link. I had no idea they were doing this regularly now. I'm only 26, but I'm a "jingle freak," so I love the throwback broadcasts.

Thanks for the tip. I was a teenager in the 70s in Westchester County and WABC was on our radios most of the time.

I used to listen to Cousin Brucie on WABC from the Metro DC area - WABC had a strong signal.

Thanks for this thread, Coleus! WABC was my "beach station" back when I was growing up in CT (I was too young to remember WABC when I lived in NJ).

When I was a teenager hanging out on CT and RI beaches during the summer, WABC was the station of choice for music in the 70s. It came in loud and clear over Long Island Sound (but not at my house up in the Hartford area). Everybody on the beaches had the same radio station blaring on their AM radios... LOL.

I remember WABC's funny old jingles, echo-chamber sound, "The WABCDegrees" weather report, Ron Lundy, Dan Ingram, Cousin Brucie and Johnny Donovan. Ahhh... memories... :o)

Yikes - am I dating myself or WHAT?!

I assume they'll do a "WABC Rewound" this Memorial Day weekend?

Yep, that's how it sounded "back in the day" on AM radio. Also notice the weird echo-chamber sound, and clanging bell...

A classic jingle from WDRC 1360 in Hartford, circa 1970.

Cool! WDRC 1360 was my "home" station back in the 70s. Listened to WABC exclusively when on the CT and RI beaches during the summer (see #8).

Ugh, get this dingbat lib Linda Ronstadt off the air. My husband grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He just said when Gov. Moonbeam (Jerry Brown) was dating Ronstadt, she used to freak him out because she tried to act like a little girl... still had tea parties with her dolls. Yeesh...

This was by far the greatest station that ever existed. I heard them sign off 24 years ago last Wednesday, and it broke my heart. The music, DJs and memories - plus their ability to unite an entire generation of listeners - made this a truly unique station.That's why, to this day, I refuse to listen to their replacement (and I know I'm going to catch flak for that on this board :-) Rock on!

I know... hope we can catch the WABC Rewound show on Memorial Day weekend. We're usually running around somewhere, trying to catch the show up here in the "hinterlands" through heavy static on the car radio. It's nice to even catch parts of the show, with the old clips of Ron Lundy, Dan Ingram, et al.

If happen to be home at the computer that day, I'll try to stream it from WABC's site, like I'm doing now.

If anyone is in the Morristown NJ area, WMTR-am 1250 has a great oldies format and their playlist is pretty good. Problem is they don't have a very strong signal, but I think they do a webstream and their website is

Oh wow... since I couldn't listen regularly to WABC back then I had no idea. It must have been awful to have witnessed that broadcast way back when... AM radio has changed SO much.

Awww... 10pm, they're signing off. :-(

XM radio will sometimes do this on the 60's channel.

They did the old stuff from WLS Chicago radio.

For those of us in the midwest WLS had a range of about 400 miles.

There are some good oldies shows out there, some of which are online. For example, Ron Dwyer's Sat night show on WCIB (Falmouth/Cape Cod, MA). A few weeks back he played a great ext. remix of "Reach Out I'll Be There" and a bunch of other
tunes you haven't heard in awhile...Also on WATD Marshfield MA

http://www.959watd.com/RonDwyer.asp

Once in awhile I get tapes of CHUM (Toronto) which has a good Sunday morning oldies show. He (Roger Ashby) does a behind-the-song feature and will play some songs that were hits on the Canadian chart but not US.

The one I have, AudioRecordWizard3 ($25 from NowSmart) can tape from an outside source (like a stereo hooked up to
the comp.--for a station that DOESN'T streamcast) or a
"wave out mix" (from a stream cast station). Use mp3 files
which are much smaller than .wav...

The other night I taped a 5 hour talk show on WBZ which was co-hosted by a friend of mine. I taped it all onto the comp.
them split it into smaller files (mp3 direct cut) which could either be burned onto CDs or transferred easily to an
mp3 player (MusicMatch)

but yes there's software out there which is cheaper than the AudioRecordWizard or even free. (the mp3 Direct Cut and
Music Match ones I mentioned have pretty good basic versions that ARE free.)

It was the 50s and early 60s when I was a kid in NY. I think it was another station that had "Murray The K and The Swingin' Soiree", but that and WABC were my prime source of American culture.

D.C.? I'll be darned! I grew up in the Baltimore suburbs, and I never even heard of Cousin Brucie until my husband, a Jersey boy (but I married him anyway) told me about him. Of course, he had never heard of Buddy Dean. Now we catch Cousin Brucie sometimes on Sirius Gold.
