[Description by Uncle Ricky]
For those who believe there are bushels of unscoped early '60's airchecks just waiting to be discovered, we invite you to savor this all-too-short and partially edited aircheck of Dandy Dan Daniel on WMCA, New York. There are many "Good Guys" home-brew "jingles", but as a bonus, we get a few minutes of Frank Stickle and news, complete with "newsbugs"!
It's not only a very nice example of Mr. Daniel's rapid-fire, precision delivery, it's a reminder of that original Top 40 concept of VARIETY (not diversity), featuring two pop ballads, a folk tune, and a surf band neo-classic. I'm sure there was a lot more variety that afternoon, but sadly, all we have is 18 minutes. I hope you enjoy this because there is far, far too little of this era of American pop music radio.
Our thanks to The Dave Smith Collection for sharing this rare recording with REELRADIO.
