Fredericks features airchecks from WADO on the Symphony Sid show, and a later aircheck on the Night Train show, along with his recollections of WADO history.

In 1966, Alan Fredericks left radio and eventually enjoyed a successful career as a writer and editor for Travel Weekly. Considered widely-quoted and influential in the travel industry, he reportedly enjoyed his appearances on several WCBS-FM Radio Reunions in the '80's and '90's.
