Subject: Sony CDP-101 (WDVE / WQED-FM)

It was around this time of year (back in 1983) that Pittsburgh FM stations, WDVE & WQED-FM dazzled stoner-rock & classical music audiences alike, with a tasty new audio treat of Sony's 1st compact disc player! (CDP-101)

Sony made it a point to provide each rock & classical fm station of all US major cities in 1983 with a free CDP-101 CD player to demonstrate the greatness of music from both extremes of the music spectrum!

Can somebody please tell me the exact date and 1st piece of music played on both, WDVE & WQED-FM? Some of the first songs I remember hearing on DVE via their new CD player were Bruce Springsteen, "Tenth Avenue Freez-Out" and Bill Joel, "Pressure".

As a side note, for DVE to accommodate the limited selection of what was available on CD in '83 by playing "Pressure" at this time of their history is a departure from what was their usual mainstay of AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, etc.
