Special Version of the Limbo Rock Mentioning the WABC DJs in 1962

The Limbo Rock was a big hit for Chubby Checker in Fall 1962.  It is still played at parties.  I vaguely remembered a version of it where Chubby mentioned the WABC radio personalities at that time.  I sent a request to Jon Wolfert who hosts a show on Rewound Radio where he features oldies and radio station jingles.  It is heard Sundays from 3 PM to 6PM.  I sent him a query about that version.  He played it for me on yesterday's show.  I especially thank Charlie Menut who recorded it and sent it to me.
