Dan Ingram's Final WABC Show May 1982
This was the end of an era in
New York City Radio.
This is an unscoped 4 Hour 4 CD aircheck of the final Dan Ingram Show on WABC
from May 7, 1982. All during the four hours Dan plays songs and other pieces of
the past from all the WABC years, tells a whole lot of stories, gets visits from
well wishers and except for the final couple of moments leads one big on air
Dan was under the belief that later that summer he would wind up on what was
planned to be a satellite delivered syndicated version of WABC what was to have
been known as Super Radio. Unfortunately that never came to pass and it would be
a couple of years before Dan would return to a daily radio show on 92 WKTU near
the end of their run as a Top 40 station.
Just a couple of notes about this item. Most of the newscasts and traffic
reports are scoped out. There was also a dead spot on the tape that served as
the source for this CD set. The 5:30 to 5:50 p.m. segment has also been left out
due to it's poor sound quality. Otherwise this CD set captures the feelings and
sounds of that afternoon.
This is your chance to catch a copy of how it all came to an end for Dan
Ingram on WABC after almost 21 years.
Total Time - 3 Hours
