Listening to WABC Rewound on Memorial Day Weekend

From 1960-1982 Musicradio 77 WABC was the #1 station in New York City.  Since it had such a powerful signal, it could be heard in 38 states at night.  Back then Top 40 radio was the king while other formats had much smaller listeners.

Every year on Memorial Day airchecks from WABC are heard on Rewound Radio.  For once a year it is nice to revisit radio the way it was all those years ago.  In today's era of highly fragmented musical styles, this format could never work again.

I thank Allan Sniffen for making this possible once a year.  He certainly puts a lot of time and effort into Rewound Radio.
