Vince Santarelli has, for about 20 years, been keeping track of the comings and goings, anniversaries, day parts and ratings of people who worked behind microphones. We’re pleased to add a link (below left) to his website, “Apple Bites,” because we are in the remembering busines, too, and Vince’s charts are filled with names we know and know of, and of events we experienced, or know to be important markers in radio history. Thanks to Bill Diehl for brining these sites together and to Vince Santarelli for working the field faithfully for so many seasons.
Former WNEW PD, Dick Carr and former WNEW News Director, Alan Walden, have collaborated on a WNEW News retrospective now appearing on “Dick Carr’s Big Bands, Ballads and Blues,” website. The second installment deals with coverage of the killing of Robert Kennedy. Click on link below.
Boris Karlof is seen here behind a WNEW microphone in 1950. It’s a photo we had not seen when a story about Karlof’s series of children’s programs on WNEW was posted on this site. (See below) The photo source is a Wikipedia history about WBBR, the financial news broadcaster, owned and operated by Bloomberg L.P., the company that bought out WNEW in 1993.
