May 10, 1982 - The Day the music died

It was 29 years ago today that WABC stopped playing music.  There are plenty of other sites on the Internet including the Wikipedia that gives the history of the station before and after the MusicRadio era (1960-82). I was working at Schering Corporation on that date which was a Monday.  I have certainly listened to recordings of the last broadcast with Ron Lundy and Dan Ingram many times over the years.

Nothing in this world stays the same.  WABC which was the #1 rated station for years was losing listeners to FM radio where the music quality was so much better.  Those were the days.
