Hear the President of the United States elected on WABC
. . .
DESCRIPTION BY UNCLE RICKY
Charlie Greer, the jingles, and the spots for Dennison are all familar on overnight WABC, but this is the overnight show after the 1968 national election.
Richard Nixon, George Wallace and Hubert Humphrey are running for president, and Humphrey is leading!
Bob Hardt, Don Gardner, Irv Chapman and John Maher report. There are what are likely real teletype machines in the background, and at one point, we hear an editor pecking away on a typewriter in the newsroom.
This was a either a "studio recording", or a recording from WABC-FM, accounting for the excellent fidelity. It sounded naked without reverb, so that was added.
