I saw that episode on "7th Heaven" earlier tonight in an episode called "Gossip". It has some snippets of Ricky Nelson songs like "Hello, Mary Lou", "Poor Little Fool" and "Travelin' Man". I was so sad that he died back in 1985.

January 1, 1962 - The Beatles - John, Paul, George, and Pete Best - audition for Decca Records and record several fifties rockers and two original tunes, "Hello Little Girl" and "Like Dreamers Do." Decca producer Mike Smith wants to sign them on the spot, but Dick Rowe, his boss, overrules him and turns the Beatles down. "These boys won't make it," Rowe tells Beatles manager Brian Epstein. "Four-groups are out. Go back to Liverpool, Mr. Epstein, you have a successful business there."

Only McLean Stevenson's decision to leave "M*A*S*H" in 1975 for his own show rivals Rowe's nixing of the Beatles as the worst decision made in the history of popular entertainment.

I have a few songs from "The Beatles: Anthology I" including tunes from the Decca period "Three Cool Cats", "Searchin'", "The Shieks of Araby", "Like Dreamers Do", "Hello Little Girl" and the first song after they left the Decca session was the pop version of "Besame Mucho". A number of these songs from that session was appeared in numerous bootlegs.

January 3, 1970 - On this day in history, also a Saturday like today, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr (John Lennon was in Denmark) recorded "I Me Mine" for the as-yet-unfinished Let It Be album. Before one take, George read a mock press release to the control room acknowledging John's absence: "You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Micky, Tich and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in [studio] number two." (The cutesy-pie names refer to Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Micky, and Tich, a Wiltshire pop quintet that was very successful in Britain but never had a hit in the United States.)

The following day, January 4, several overdubs were taped for "Let It Be," the song. These sessions would be the last Beatles recording dates until the 1994 and 1995 Anthology sessions.

January 3, 1970 - B.J. Thomas's lame version of the lame Bacharach-David theme song for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," was at the top of the Billboard singles charts. It would be at number one for the entire month of January 1970, setting an unfortunate standard for the rest of the seventies, a decade that saw "Seasons In the Sun," "Afternoon Delight," and "You Light Up My Life" (number one for ten friggin' weeks!!), among other songs, top the Billboard singles charts. Album rock radio would suddenly become very popular!

1935 is a year that will bring many long-term changes to the United States and its way of life. Dust storms in the Plains states will cause many midwesterners to move to California, which will help make it the nation's most populous state thirty years hence. Congress will pass Social Security, which will give the elderly a new government pension and a new political voice in the decades to come. The Rural Electrification Administration will bring power and modern conveniences to millions of farm dwellers still stuck in the nineteenth century. President Franklin Roosevelt will forge ahead with a new highway building program to alleviate the effects of the Depression and provide jobs, forever altering American surface transportation. But the biggest event that will forever change America and the world occurs a week after New Year's Day, on Tuesday, January 8, 69 years ago today, in Tupelo, Mississippi.

ELVIS PRESLEY IS BORN!!

All hail the King.

Yesterday was January 7th and it was on that day in 1981:

Ron Lundy seems pretty up with strong GOLD in the rotation, a common play of the 70's and 80's Top 40/CHR's to get more A/C females in the midday. Music is good, and man, that airchain. It's amazing that WABC and WNBC were in a hot contest to see who could be the most A/C-sounding CHR in America! Here is that one from January 7th, 1981 which is from the Reel Radio website:

NOTE: This aircheck contains music and vintage commercials uncut for your pleasure.

On this day in history, January 20:

1964 - Meet the Beatles, Capitol's first Beatles album in the United States, is released. On the strength of the already huge hit "I Want To Hold Your Hand," which is included on the album, it goes straight to number one.

1969 - The Beatles go into their new Apple studio in Savile Row to begin recording what will become their Let It Be album. . . and leave about half an hour later, because the recording equipment sucks! Their electronics "expert" Alexis "Magic Alex" Mardas, has constructed a mixing console made of old wood, bits of metal, and part of an old oscilloscope that flat doesn't work. The Beatles try a take with it, but when they play it back, all they hear is hum and hiss. The group needs to borrow equipment from Abbey Road, and the recording sessions for Let It Be start two days later. Mardas's mixing board gets sold for scrap for five pounds, or about eleven American dollars. It simply isn't worth any more. (Mardas himself will eventually get fired from Apple by Allen Klein.)

1989 - Presidential Inauguration Story I: Republican party chairman and amateur blues guitarist Lee Atwater hosts several rhythm and blues artists at President George H.W. Bush's inaugural ball. At the celebration, Bush pretends to jam on a Fender guitar.

1993 - Presidential Inauguration Story II: LL Cool J perfroms at President Bill Clinton's inaugural celebration - the first rapper to perform at a presidential inaugural.

2001 - Presidential Inauguration Story III: Hoping to court Hispanic voters for 2004 and not knowing that the former Menudo member's moment in the sun has already passed, President George W. Bush invites Ricky Martin to perform at his inaugural. Martin looks even less like a Latin Elvis and more like a Latin Frankie Avalon.

Today in Music History: 1976

The JAM Creative Productions jingle era began at WABC a year after that with JAM's "Priority 1 Package". This was the first aircheck in the series which features JAM jingles. Note the faster rhythm of the jingles. Getting the call letters in quickly and then getting back to music was now what radio stations were demanding of Jingles.

This aircheck starts with a special "edit" of the Bay City Rollers' "Saturday Night". These edits are created by the WABC engineers for Dan.

If you listen carefully, Dan also has a good time kidding around about the late Wolfman Jack (another fellow DJ at WNBC) on this aircheck. They might have a "Clearasel" commercial on it.

Listen to it now:

January 22, 1978:

Steve O'Brien did his last show on WABC. The WABC game was underway where listeners in New York had to know which prize was being given away to win it. You therefore had to keep listening. Steve went to work the afternoon drive shift at WYNY and while there had some highest ratings in New York as the listening audience shifted to the FM dial.

January 23rd, 1969 (that's 35 years ago today.)

WABC had just introduced the "Power Hit #" jingles in front of the top 3 songs of the week (which Dan comments on). Most all of their jingles now being used on WABC are now shorter. Most heard here are from PAMS Series #34.

There are an amazing number of commercials on WABC. The reason why WABC required "program matter" of some kind be inserted between commercials. By now, the station was a huge money maker.

Note Dan's one liner about newsman Bob Hardt being so thin. This become common practice between Dan and Bob as time passed. Note also how Dan has a terrific time kidding with his engineer in such a way to keep listeners interested. This is another reason why the engineers played a very big role on WABC. While it was rare to actually hear them, they did have the effect of giving air personalities someone to play off of.
