By the way, PAMS actually had Series #18 during one of its airchecks with the one that you are listening to. This clip features this famous "Contempo Sig" jingle:

This is the later one which is still in use today for its website of the TV announcer of all time, Randy West.

Of course, you're right! I forgot to tell you that yesterday in 1987, one of the greatest pioneer disc jockey in New York radio was gone, his name was Bob Lewis, better known as "Bob-A-Loo". The following month, Cousin Bruce Morrow (better known as Cousin Brucie) was hosted a tribute to his personal hero on CBS-FM. You should listen to this tribute on this website:
http://musicradio.computer.net/image...sfm2-14-87.ram

This aircheck was aired on February 14th, of 1987. Featuring appearances by Harry Harrison, Dan Ingram, Joe McCoy, Rick Sklar and Ron Lundy and it includes airchecks of "Bob-A-Loo's" final show from September 13th, 1986 and an aircheck from back in the mid 80's. It's a one of a kind tribute. By the way, there is an aircheck about the tribute from WNEW-FM is at:

All these clips are courtesy of musicradio77.com

Angry

Musically, the eighties sucked.

Except for John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Hall and Oates, and Prince, the eighties were a rotten decade for music. It was the decade when pop stars had big hair and small brains. The synthesizer made it easy for anyone to arrange music, the stars themselves no longer had to play (just plug in the Casio and repeat the same three words over and over), MTV marked ther triumph of visual style over musical substance (Bob Pittman is the Antichrist!!), and video jocks like Alan Hunter became famous. The eighties were one boring, depressing decade for popular music. Looking back, you can summarize the decade by looking at what was on top of the Billboard singles charts in the first week of January 1980 and in the last week of December 1989. Its first number one single was "Babe Please Don't Go" by K.C. and the Sunshine Band, and its last was "Another Day In Paradise" by Phil Collins. In with a yawn, out with a yawn.

So why am I writing this tirade on this thread? Because it was on this day in 1951 that both the first and last eighties chart toppers, Harry Wayne "K.C." Casey and Phil Collins, were born.

Weird, ain't it?

but truthfully, have the 90's (with the exception of grunge) or 2000's actually been any better mainstream music wise? If anything, it's much worse than it was in the 1980's. Look at what's on the chart now, and compare it to this week 20 years ago, and there is no way you can argue the era of Beyonce, Hilary Duff and Ludacris is better than the era of Michael Jackson, The Cars and Prince.

If anything, music is more about image now than it was in the 80's. The stuff in the 80's was at least catchy, that's not even a given for a song being a hit in 2004. Britney, Justin, J. Lo, Eminem and all the countless soundalike, lookalike hip hop "TRL stars" are every bit as image conscious as Madonna, Boy George, Cyndi Lauper or Jon Bon Jovi were.

FEB 1st

2001 Sean "Puffy" Combs' is sued by a woman who claims that after renting the hip-hop mogul's Beverly Hills home, she discovered it was "infested with insects, rodents and vermin."


2001 In a posting to her Web site, country singer LeAnn Rimes asks her fans not to buy her new album I Need You, explaining that she's suing both her record company and manager/father.


1988 The Cars announce that, after a string of hits on the Elektra label, they are breaking up.


1977 Led Zeppelin postpone their North American tour after Robert Plant comes down with tonsillitis. The dates of what would be the band's last American concerts are moved to June.

1969 Led Zeppelin supports Iron Butterfly at the Fillmore East concert hall in New York. As Butterfly drummer Ron Bushy plays his lengthy solo on "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," John Bonham launches a stage invasion, upsetting several Atlantic Records executives in the audience.

1968 The Doors announce that Universal has offered them a $500,000 movie contract. They also claim a book of Jim Morrison's poems and a joke book by the entire band are on the way.

1967 The Beatles begin sessions for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, laying down the rhythm track for the title cut.

same thing was with the 90's, it started with Michael Bolton's How Am I Supposed To Live Without You and ended with Santana's Smooth, and this decade started with Savage Garden's I Knew I Loved You.... IT HAS NOT GOTTEN BETTER. Hell, I'd even rather listen to Tiffany (IMO the worst artist to come out of the 1980's) over 90% of what's on the chart now.

Why is everyone so quick to bash Phil Collins nowadays instead of just accepting the fact that he jumped the shark, but that you cannot ignore his early solo career, and his work with Genesis (up until the late 80's). Prince's last few albums have been bad, but they never erased the memory of his classic material, same should go for Phil. His last 15 years have been bad, but they shouldn't negate the Face Value album

Cool FORTY YEARS AGO TODAY

On February 7, 1964, the Beatles arrived in New York to play gigs on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and at Carnegie Hall and Washington, D.C.'s Coliseum.

Beatlemania conquered America.
