Now Hear This: The WCBS Oldies Format

WCBS was one of the first stations in the nation to switch to the “new” Oldies format (1972). In this aircheck, it’s what you would expect from a major market monster like WCBS.

This is a great presentation of the music with popular personalities Dick Heatherton and Norm N. Nite (Norman Durma).

    1. WCBS – A Top 40 personality presentation of Oldies, much different than most Oldies stations, which were dependent more on jingles and gimmicks. This is the way it should have been done.
