It was 51 years ago tonight (I am posting this on New Year’s Eve 2020) that KJR counted down to the birth of the New Year by playing the Top 10 hits of 1969. A tape was rolling as Gary Shannon said goodbye to ’69 and enthusiastically ushered in 1970. Enjoy many of the voices and sounds of ’69 as heard on KJR. Norm Gregory’s voice is easily recognizable. Shannon was fun to listen to, he had it down to a science. This brings back lots of memories for me, I was a senior in high school in 1969/’70.
Since New Year’s Eve parties are rather subdued this year, Gary’s exciting aircheck lets the listener remember how things used to be….and hopefully will be again next year!
