[Description by Uncle Ricky]

This exhibit is MOSTLY UNSCOPED, meaning that most of all the music is included. We are required to pay a fee for each listener for all complete musical performances on this recording. Plus, we must also pay the cost of Internet bandwidth to deliver it to you. We are a user-supported organization, and if you enjoy this exhibit, please say thanks with your support.
Such wonderful days they were, when the best Major Market Radio in the United States was on AM and played Les Baxter and Frankie Lymon and Perry Como, because it was in the Top 40.

New York Radio Legend Ted Brown recalls those early days and the Top Ten (or so) at WMGM in 1956. Included are major cameos by Dan Ingram, Herb Oscar Anderson, and even a bit of Jocko Henderson. This exhibit is partially edited, but mostly unscoped, which means a couple of tunes and all the spots are mostly gone. Still most of it is mostly here. As with all contributions, this recording is subject to mechanical inaccuracies that are not always correctable before publication. The fidelity, otherwise, is very high.

And all of Ted Brown is here, in the unlikely role of Top 40 Oldies DJ, circa 1993. Mr. Brown is an exceptional example of a personality presenting music on a radio station, and not just music on the radio. Yeah, these guys talk a lot, and us old folks just love that. But we enjoy the music, too...

The "Rock And Roll Radio Greats Reunions" of this era were produced for WCBS-FM by Joe McCoy.
