The anniversary this month of the un-plugging of WNEW AM in December, 1992, brought this add from Bill Diehl. (WNEW 1967-1971)
“The 20th WNEW anniversary reminded me of my 45th anniversary. It was my debut on WNEW on a cold January night (can’t remember the exact day) in January 1967. My last cast on the overnight was at 6:00 a.m., when I turned things over to Klavan and Finch. Quite a proud moment to say those words, along with saying those famous call letters. I really felt I’d made it in New York and Gene confirmed it when he gave me a copy of his 1964 book “We Die At Dawn,” and autographed it too.
