WOR-FM Revisted on WFUV

Back in September 2008 I wrote a journal entry about WOR-FM.  Right now I am listening to a tribute to that station that was originally heard on WFUV Saturday night October 8 at 8 PM.  At that time I was listening to Cousin Brucie on SiriusXM 60s on 6, but was not aware of that show.  After Vin Scelsa retired, Paul Cavalconte, another New York radio icon started a show in that time slot called the Cavalcade.  Luckily I found out on Facebook that the show was being archived.  I highly suggest to my radio enthuisast friends listen to it at at  I don't know how long it will be on this site, so please check it out soon.

I must give special thanks to radio historian Rob Frankel who restored many WOR-FM airchecks that were heard on this show.  It is great hearing Scott Muni,  Rosko, Murray the K, and Johnny Michaels who were the first DJs on the station in October 1966.  I had the pleasure of meeting Rob Frankel on the WABC Rewound Cruise in June 2007.
