May 10, 1982 WABC Radio Drops Music For Talk

It was 35 years ago today that WABC changed its format from rock to talk.  From 1960-82 it was the premier top 40 station in the nation with classic personalities including Harry Harrison, Ron Lundy, Dan Ingram and Cousin Brucie.  In the early 80s, more people listened to music on FM since the quality is so much better.

Back in those days, WABC was the dominant radio station in the New York market, but obviously, times change.  I just think that over the years talk radio has become too political and promotes the conservative point of view.  I rarely if ever listen to talk stations.
