Unhappy The Final Dan Ingram Show

It was on this date, May 7th, 1982:

With WABC was winding down to talk radio 3 days later, Dan Ingram hosted his final afternoon show while Ron Lundy does his final show first. When Dan did his last show, he plays some of his favorite music from 21 years at WABC. That was 21 years before CBS-FM does his final weekend Dan Ingram show from June 30th of 2003. I missed Dan Ingram since it was on CBS-FM for 13 years and over 40+ years in NY radio. Here is the final Dan Ingram show on WABC. The aircheck opens with Herb Oscar Anderson's theme "Hello Again" the song became an anthem (when Herb Oscar Anderson joined "The Music of Your Life" radio network last year, he played the same theme song.)

Post March 9th 1982

On this date in 1982:

WABC was almost coming to an end, until the next day, Peter Bush did his final all-night music show with phone calls to friends and families are talking about their bygone days at WABC as a music station and plays a few Beatles music and a whole bunch of stuff. And at the end, Peter Bush says their final words and goodbyes and he was saying that "Tomorrow, Dan Ingram & Ron Lundy doing his final show on WABC".

Unhappy May 10th, 1982 - The Day the Music Died

It was on this date, May 10th, 1982:

WABC was over as Dan Ingram and Ron Lundy does his final show. They played some music from over the years and then Dan Ingram and Ron Lundy discussed about WABC through the years from 1961 to 1977. Before the end of the show, they played a special 36-minute WABC music montage featuring snippets and jingles from all of the years from 1955 to 1982. The show ends with special thank yous and finally, the last record played on WABC was the by John Lennon called "Imagine". It was the end of an era for Top 40 AM radio. WABC talkradio had arrived that afternoon. The first talk radio show on WABC after the format switch was the "Art Athens Show" with Dan Ingram and Ron Lundy. Listen in its entirety, the last show on WABC as a Top 40 station (music was edited out during that aircheck):

The special WABC music montage can be heard here:

That same day that WNEW-FM ran a special 2-hour documentry with Scott Muni called "A Tribute to Musicradio WABC". It can be heard in 3 parts:

Unhappy 5/11/81 - Bob Marley dies

On this day in 1981, May 11, reggae star Bob Marley died in Miami of lung cancer.

Default 20 Years Ago Today - May 16, 1984

"When Doves Cry" is released as the first single from the album and movie Purple Rain. Warner Brothers was initially hesitant to release the song, arguing that it was too different from the usual pop fare. Despite the apprehension, listeners took hold of "When Doves Cry", making it Warner Brothers' fastest selling single ever upon its' release. Spending five weeks at number one on the pop charts and eight weeks atop the r 'n b charts, "When Doves Cry" ended up as 1984's top selling single.

On this day in 1969, May 26, Crosby, Stills and Nash released their debut album.



With their perfect harmonies, personal songwriting, and laid-back vibe, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash founded the blueprint for the LA rock that would dominate the seventies.

On this day in 1969, May 28, Glyn Johns finished mixing and compiling the Beatles album Get Back from the January 1969 Apple Studios sessions. The Beatles rejected it, and Allen Klein wanted a hold on the Get Back tapes altogether so that Apple could find time to turn their TV documentary on the sessions into a movie for theatrical release.

After another Johns-complied Get Back album failed to make the grade in January 1970, Phil Spector was brought in to see what he could do. By then, the album and the movie were both renamed Let it Be.

Two Beatles anniversaries:

On this day in 1968, May 30, the Beatles began sessions for the White Album with eighteen takes of the slow version of "Revolution," "Revolution 1."

Also, on this day in 1969, the Beatles first released "The Ballad Of John and Yoko" in the United Kingdom. It was their last number one single in their home country. (It only got up to number eight in the U.S.)

Two more Beatles anniversaries!

On this day in 1967, June 1, the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in the U.K. It was released in the U.S. the following day.

Two years later, on June 1, 1969, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Tommy Smothers, Petula Clark, a rabbi, a group of Hari Krishnas, Derek Talyor, Timothy Leary, and a whole bunch of folks John and Yoko probably didn't know from Adam and Eve, got together during the Lennons' Montreal bed-in for peace and recorded "Give Peace a Chance." This was the first single from the Plastic Ono Band, whose lineup consisted of John, Yoko, and whoever happened to be in the room at the time.

"All we saying is give peace a chance."

(The song was credited to Lennon and McCartney, though Paul did not help John wirte it. John later admitted it deserved a Lennon and Ono credit instead.)

On this day in 1962, June 6, the Beatles appeared at Abbey Road Studios for the first time for a recording test with the Parlophone label of EMI Records. Producer and Parlophone director George Martin didn't find anything particularly distinctive about their brand of rock and roll, and he found them a little antisocial. Martin finally asked them, should they be given a recording contract, if there was anything they didn't like.

"Well, for a start," George Harrison replied, "I don't like your tie!"

Martin and the Beatles broke into hapless laughter; the ice was broken, and they got along fabulously. Martin, whose label was a novelty label with no big stars save Peter Sellers and his fellow Goon Show comedians (Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe), decided to sign them. "I have nothing to lose," he thought to himself.

Later, Martin told other EMI label directors at a meeting that he signed a rock and roll group from Liverpool called the Beatles, and that they'd be hearing a lot from this new group.

Eveyone laughed at the idea of anything significant coming from Parlophone - least of all, a rock and roll group from Liverpool.

Cool 6/7/69 - Blind Faith's only UK gig

On this day in 1969, June 7, the British supergroup Blind Faith - Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker (late of Cream), Steve Winwood (late of Traffic), and Rick Grech (late of Family) - played their only major U.K. gig, a free concert in London's Hyde Park. Afraid that Blind Faith would be seen as a reincarnation of Cream, Clapton was pleased when a fan at the lip of the stage yelled out, "It's not Cream, Eric, it's Blind Faith. Play what you like!"

Today 6/11/99, Hudson Valley's radio station, WBPM switched its format from all-hit music station, B-94 to Rhythm 94.3 playing classic jamming oldies by the Four Tops, Freddie Jackson, Michael Jackson, The Temptations, Donna Summer, Issac Hayes, The Jackson 5, The Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Billy Preston, Earth Wind & Fire and Chic. That station lasted until late 2001 until they switched it again to Cool 94.3 for classic oldies and then to country music as Kicks 94.3 last year with a new call letters, WKXP. WBPM moved its 94.3 frequency to 92.9 about a year later where they play oldies (fromerly WRKW as a classic rock station known as 92.9 Rock).
