The 1980's saw a lot of format flipping and switching on the NYC dial. This example features the end of a heritage country music station as it becomes the first ever all sports radio station in the country

1050 WHN flipped from easy listening to country in 1973. While music was dropped by one AM station after another, WHN (along with WNBC and WNEW-AM) managed to survive. Then in 1987 new owners announced the launch of this new all sports format

This unscoped CD features the last half hour of 1050 WHN as a country station with DJ Dan Taylor providing a very classy close to the music. That's followed by the first 45 minutes of 1050 WFAN. You'll hear host Jim Lampley who came from TV to do a daily show. You'll also hear Suzyn Waldman doing sports updates. Suzyn is now the radio color commentator for the Yankees.

This unscoped CD will let you relive some of the sports news of the summer of 1987. You'll also hear the many human and electronic goofs that happen when you launch a new station. For the ultimate radio trivia geek, this CD will give you, in it's entirety, the first ever listener call made to an all sports radio station.
