[Description by Larry Ware]
Ron Lundy began his career in radio at 1430 WIL in St. Louis. It was at WIL where he met life-long best friend, and then, program director, Dan Ingram. Dan Ingram was involved in the hiring process of Ron Lundy at WIL. Ron Lundy was known in St. Louis as the "Wild Child" and his program was Number One in the market.
In September of 1965 Lundy joined the staff at 770 WABC, New York where he began working the overnight shift as the "Swinging Night Walker". Seven months later he worked a 10AM - 2 PM midday airshift following Herb Oscar Anderson and later, in 1968, "The Morning Mayor" Harry Harrison. In 1984 Lundy joined the staff at WCBS-FM where he again worked with Dan Ingram and Harry Harrison. Lundy retired from WCBS on September 18, 1997 to his farm with his wife near Oxford, Mississippi.
At the time of this aircheck "The Twist" was number 13 on the Silver Dollar Survey. WIL was using PAMS jingles. "Top Cat" was playing in prime time television. John Glenn was predicting the eventual existence of high-powered space cars. You could have your car outfitted with after market seat belts. Mel Blanc was doing Clark Gasoline commercials. And you could hear WIL's award winning Action Central News with Fred DuPair.
