In 1977-78 when I lived in New London, CT I was able to pick up WLNG from Sag Harbor at the eastern end of Long Island. Even back then it was one of very few locally owned radio stations. They played oldies rarely heard on good oldies stations like WCBS-FM. In the 1990s I often traded for tapes of WLNG since the music was so good.
In 2005 After Bob Shannon was let go after the hijacking of WCBS-FM WlNG hired him and his wife Connie T. Empress to do a Behind the Hits Show Tuesdays from 11 AM to 3 PM. Even when Bob was rehired by WCBS-FM he July 2007, he kept the gig at WLNG. This station is a dinosaur, but a very enjoyable one. Where else on the radio dial in this area would you hear announcements for lost pets and other local announcements. Today I was able to work in my office and hear WLNG for about 1 1/2 hours. Isn't webcasting wonderful. You can hear almost any radio station you want at any time of the day or night.
