. . . Tune in WGBB on your transistor! . . .
[DESCRIPTION BY UNCLE RICKY from notes by ROB FRANKEL]
This restored exhibit from Master Restorian Rob Frankel originated from the personal collection of Dave Vieser. Rob says he grew up listening to "The Vieser" on WGBB (1240Khz), and they've become friends in recent years. Rob restored this aircheck from a 'scoped studio original.
Rob also notes the WGBB reverb, a genuine classic! It's "sort of a cross between reverb and tape echo and it actually comes from an organ," says Rob. The late Richard Fatherley wrote in "Radio's Revolution And The World's Happiest Broadcasters" about a Hammond Organ oil-dampened "fluid column" reverb. It was standard issue by the Storz engineering staff in the early days of Top 40. So, this was an extra-cool radio station if they actually had one of the original Hammond fluid-column reverb units.
With publication on August 21, 2011, after 15.5 years, this is our FIRST Long Island aircheck!
