I'm reading them, too.

I wish I'd been able to see all of them perform, especially The Who and The Doors.

Yeah, they were about to go on tour when he died! Bonham should've lightened up on the shots.

1980 was a sad year for music and entertainment:

Feb: Bon Scott of AC/DC died
Aug: Playboy Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten was killed
Sep: Of course Bonham died
Dec: John Lennon was killed

I found what was on this date in history.

It was 11 years ago, yesterday. A great radio tradition had finally come to an end. WNEW-AM 1130 - for over 70+ years, one of America's top music stations - signed off as a station was bought out by Bloomberg Radio. Many top broadcasters passed through its doors, including former WABC disc jockey, Martin Block, William B. Williams and Gene Klaven. But when the end came just two remained, Mark Simone and Ted Brown chatting about the old days as the last minutes of WNEW-AM ticked away. Listen to this sad clip from 11 years ago yesterday. It is located at http://rockradioscrapbook.tripod.com/wnewend.ram

Today in music history, December 27th

5 years ago today:

Radio station WQEW was signed off the air. After six straight years of playing nothing but big band music and contemperary standards. Listeners in New York and throughout the US and Canada got to hear American standards on a clear channel signal. The music selection was diverse, and the programs presented by such personalities such as Jonathan Schwartz and Rich Konaty were incredibly entertaining.

In early December 1998, it was announced that the satelitte-fed, Radio Disney would replaced the rich sounds of Sinatra, Ella and Basie at 1560 on the AM dial. A few short weeks later, WQEW American Popular Standards was gone and another great radio station had left the airwaves.

Today, many New Yorker's would listened to New Jersey's WMTR at 1250 AM. In New Jersey, many listeners are tuned in to WVNJ for great standards and there is a station plays "The Music of Your Life" is on many stations in the Hudson Valley area including WHUC, WKIP, WGHQ and WELV. There is also a station played the same network is on WTLV in the Utica area. As for WQEW, Radio Disney will hear a lot of great artists like Britney Spears, NSync, Justin Timberlake and Hilary Duff and there is also a website radiodisney.com. Radio Disney could be found in all radio stations throughout the 48 states.

Listen to this sad ending featuring the last song called "Stardust" by Nat King Cole and featuring closing remarks by the late Stan Martin. The link could be found at:
http://rockradioscrapbook.tripod.com/wqewend.ram

There is also Jonathan Scwartz's last weekday show instead of saying goodbye. The link ould also be found at:
http://rockradioscrapbook.tripod.com/js2.ram

The song "Stowaway In the Sky" turned out to be the final song for his show. Here is that link to thee song "Stowaway In the Sky":
http://rockradioscrapbook.tripod.com/jstheme.ram

It happened 5 years ago, today. WQEW standards format was gone.

Today in Music History: December 31st

1976

Harry Harrison plays the Top 100 of 1976 from his show on December 31st, 1976. Listen to how continually works in the time, weather forcast, and traffic reports. WABC's "Big Ticket" contest was well underway and Harry gives out several numbers for the contest. He makes it sound effortless, but if you think about all he is doing on this show it's remarkable. Balancing all the various parts of the show as well as a very large commercial load took a great deal of organization and talent. If you have worked in radio, then you now how quickly that amount of juggling can overwhelm you! At the end of this program, Harry's children get a chance to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
