We lost not only a GREAT programmer but also a WONDERFUL individual. Below is a copy of some emails with John from 2012................


No, the union went after WABC & WLS as they were the giants in the ABC group. The strike was settled before it spread elsewhere for ABC.
Interesting the ratings taken in those days showed WABC trounced competitor WMCA....fewer commercials and more music did it....now how hard was that to figure out?

Thank you so much Paul, to my knowledge this is the only aircheck of me...and without my even mentioning my name...talk about brevity....2:35 but ya gotta listen closely.

A very small snippet of a Johnny Rowe at WABC during the strike.
Did KQV have any issues during it?

Came across this on You Tube.
Don't know if you are aware of it up there or have seen it since 1969?
