WCBS-FM Hall of Fame March 13, 1986

For about 20 years starting in the mid 1980s I regularly taped specialty radio shows. Back then Bob Shannon hosted the WCBS-FM Hall of Fame show from 6 - 10 PM. Each show would feature a single recording artist. Bob often played records that didn't reach high chart positions and were not usually heard on the station. Today I pulled out a tape featuring Neil Sedaka on March 13, 1986. It is a shame that Neil has not yet been elected to the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Today I had the pleasure of listening to Bob 3 times:
  • WCBS-FM today
  • WLNG today
  • WCBS-FM 24 years ago

Below is a recording of Calendar Girl by Neil. Facebook friends can see it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUlOyj9F5gM
