Thanks for the memories!! Played marimba (like a tenor xylophone), of all things, on WBRY's Uncle Don show in the early 50s; hung around WBRY and WATR as a late '50s teenager -- Lou Dennis, Al Vestro, Sam Elman, and a very cranky talk show host on WATR -- and went on to WHUS at UConn when it was more fun than business. Other faves were WDRC, WTIC (Who can forget Bob Steele?), WAVZ, WWCO and WQXR. Captain Midnight; Dragnet; One Man's Family; The Lone Ranger; Doctor Christian, The Buster Brown Show; (Dare I say it?) Amos 'n Andy; Let's Pretend; Kaltenborn, Heatter, Winchell, Murrow, Don McNeil, Paul Whiteman, Ted Mack, The Army Air Force Band, R&B, blues, 50s quartets, bubble gum, rock and roll (not "rock"), elevator music, Gershwin/Ravel, Classics (hadn't yet discovered country/bluegrass yet); thanks, Radio, for bringing me up right. The Lord alone knows what happened to ya' from there.

Your WWCO history of the late 1950s and early 1960s needs a bit of correction. The 65 Bank Street location was on the 5th and 6th floors of that building, not the 3rd & 4th as stated in the history. I started there in the spring of 1959 as a vacation relief DJ and returned each summer vacation (from college) until 1962 when I became the station's first full-time News Director ( a 1-man News Department.) The boss was owner Herb Bloomberg. Bob Rouge was the long-time afternoon DJ. Bill Flower

Two more thousand watt AM's are history as commercial stations. COX has sold WSTC1400/WNLK1350 to Sacred Heart University. I have been in and out of radio after my 30 year stint at WSTC.

I've been listening to radio and its programs for years (I'm 66), and I love the reminiscing about the stations, the different programs, and the audios being played on WDRC this morning. Thank you for the memories.

I was a DJ on WCNI for 12 years, one of the community "dinosaurs" who helped train the new students in radio studio broadcast, as well as maintain a weekly show dedicated to new wave-alternativve music. I also enjoyed a stint as a production assistant and "weather Girl" on WTYD "TYDE 101 FM" in the 1990s. Thank you for having a site like this. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the old timers. Hello out there to all the other DJs! DJ KathyA
