This is a thread for the resident old farts. :codger:  Or old fart wannabes.  See how inclusive we are?  ;)

Anyway, this thread is primarily for songs that were top forty hits in the days of AM radio.

Anyone from the NYC area will remember Cousin Brucey, Dan Ingram, Bobaloo, Ron Lundy and other AM disc jockeys who we listened to on our little radios long before the days of boom boxes.

So, post videos of the songs.

Or we can just talk about them.  One song leads to another in conversation it seems.

Troutman has quite the collection of them too.

:popcorn:

As long as you are doing Curtis Mayfield, post Shaft!  :wub: :wub: :wub:

I may not be able to watch or listen, but at least my brain still has the songs stored in it and I can bring them up at will!

Remember Frankie Crocker on WMCA?


i used to love it at the end of the year when the other station, the one Cousin Brucey was on (was it WABC AM?), would have the top 100 hits of the year.  I'd sit there with a piece of paper for hours at night trying to get all of them.

I had all of these 45s.

In the late seventies, my friends in NYC and I had a 45s party.  We all brought our old little records and listened to them for hours.  We had such fun.

Yes, Brucey was on WAAAAAABC ( that's the way he used to say it.)

I think WMCA guys were close to The Beatles and had them on the radio for interviews.  If I remember correctly.
