|Bill Brown, WCBS-FM NY July 12, 1971 Pt. 1 (01:00:45)|
[RESTORED BY ROB FRANKEL. DESCRIPTION BY UNCLE RICKY.]
For those who remember a time when radio programmers created grand illusions, enjoy the 2006 reality of a 176kbps Stereo stream! It helped to keep the stereo image correct, and contributor Rob Frankel's master restoration deserves all the fidelity we can push. Not to say it's perfect at 176kbps, just to say it helps. Broadband is a Blessing. Get with the natural order.
And there is some splatter on Bill Brown's voice, but splatter ain't no matter with this marvelous blend of Chuck Blore's jingles, a manly mix of Top 40 and an emerging hybrid album format.
What's worthy of consideration is that as good as Bill Brown sounded on WCBS-FM in 1971, WCBS-FM went on to decades of success as the nation's "most listened-to Oldies station." Have you heard the news today? Oh boy...
Bill Brown worked at WCBS-FM for 36 years. He passed away October 9, 2011. Part Two of this show debuted on October 6, 2013.
