Saturday Night Oldies

And the guy up in the air? That's Charlie Greer!

WABC radio in NYC is broadcasting their weekly Saturday Night Oldies 6-10pm. Hosted by Mark Simone. Highlighting the great days of WABC music radio, before everything went talk radio. WPLJ and WNEW in NYC were rock, and WABC was pop. 50,000 watts and the best voices in radio, period. This was before the million dollar contracts and shock jocks. These shows were good, clean fun, professional with a capital P, and yet spontaneous, eccentric, and filled with laughter.

Mark's guest Ron Lundy, former DJ and all around wonderful guy, just called in to say 'hello Luv!".

Someone called in about the drastic change in tone of the commercials.
During the show, Mark plays the bumper bits, the jingles, and the original commercials from the 60s, 70s, and early 80s. Back then, it was diffferent. There were no ads for prostrate disorders, nor vaginal yeast infection creams, no ads for herpes treatments, no not-too-subtle ads for over-the-counter erection disfunction medication. Nope. The commercials were about pimple cream!! Ah, the times have changed.
