Scrapbook Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
IRV SMITH, JACK LACY WINS New York October 30, 1958
It's a trip back to the dawn of Top 40 radio.
Now an all-news station, WINS New York was a Top 40 outlet in the late '50s until the mid-'60s. The personality-oriented station boasted such talent as Irv Smith, Jack Lacy, Stan Z. Burns, Stan Shaw, Johnny Holiday, Murray the K and for a while, Alan Freed. Here's a half-hour of WINS in mid-morning from nearly 60 years ago. And it's just a coincidence that Issue #1010 matches the WINS dial position of 1010!
Enjoy Irv Smith and Jack Lacy on WINS from October 30, 1958 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
Thanks to Don Shuttleworth for this great aircheck!
