Edition #883 May 1, 2016 JACK ARMSTRONG WNBC NEW YORK APRIL 30, 1978 (UNSCOPED)
Big Jack made only one appearance in the Big Apple, but it was memorable.
On April 30, 1978, Jack Armstrong made a one-off appearance on WNBC New York as "The Unknown Deejay." He was fabulous as usual, which leads us to the question we've been asking for nearly 40 years - why wasn't he hired full time? What a great catch that would have been for WNBC, which needed all the help it could get in the tough battle for New York Top 40 radio ears.
Enjoy Jack Armstrong on WNBC
from April 30, 1978, Pt. 1 (UNSCOPED)
