The Great New York DJ’s   3 comments

microphoneI have seen a lot about when Cousin Brucie will be on XM radio. That got me thinking of all the other DJ’s we used to listen to. Not that I am putting Cousin Brucie down. He is one of the great DJ’s of all time. I just don’t think we should forget all the others that we used to listen to. They did help shape our taste in music.

So lets start this off with  the words of another of the all time greats “Murray the K and the swinging soiree with a blast from the past an old goldie for you.” do I hear an “Ah, Bey.”

Okay now that This meeting of the Swingin’ Soiree is now in session let us remember all of those DJ’s. Anyone who listened to  the radio in NYC in the 50’s and 60’s remembers those words. Murray the K was a giant in the industry he along with Cousin Bruce Morrow (We will all always be his cousins) and Alan Freed helped make Rock and Roll what it was. What station was your choice? Was it the WINS winners, WMCA Good Guys or “Music Radio” WABC. We all had our favorite back then on the AM dial.

They were not the only ones. How many of these other DJ’s names bring back special memories. Were you with your first love or just hanging out with your friends listening to them. Who

remembers “Big’ Dan Ingram and his satirical wit, Ron Lundy  “Hello, Love–this is Ron Lundy from the Greatest City in the World”, Herb Oscar Anderson “The Morning Mayor”, Scott Muni and his”Scotland’s Yard” , Harry Harrison Our mid day “Good Guy”, Joe O’Brien and “Benny”,Jack Spector who when a woman called and asked him why he was working on Yom KIppur he told her he wasn’t live it was on tape and  Garry Stevens and his “Wooleyburger”. There were so many of them if your favorite isn’t here tell me who it was. If he is here and you have a special memory you can add that too. They didn’t just play the music they talked and joked with us. They felt like family and we all lost something as each station turned to talk radio. I guess I shouldn’t say we lost them. Some of them may no longer be on the air or walking this earth but they will never be gone as long as they are still with us in our hearts.

So “Cousins” that is all for today. Put on some old 45’s and remember.
