WOWO! That brings back memories!
Back when I was in high school--in the early-mid '60s, NY area rock & roll radio stations only had public affairs and religious programming on Sunday nights. What was a teenager to do?
Well, believe it or not, my little Zenith transistor radio had very little trouble pulling in WOWO, even though Ft Wayne Indiana was fairly far from the coast of NJ, where I lived. And, since WOWO did play rock & roll on Sunday nights, that became my go-to station on Sunday nights.
From WOWO, I learned that Ft Wayne was known as "The Summit City", and I also learned that there was a hamburger chain called McDonald's that allegedly had wonderful burgers and fries. If I recall correctly, the McDonald's commercials noted that there were two McDonald's locations in the Ft Wayne area, with one of them being located on "The California Road". McDonald's was unknown in the NY metro area in those days, and the commercials (naturally) made it sound like they sold the greatest food in the world.
I think that the WOWO DJ on Sunday nights was Dick Chevalette (sp?).
Does anyone else recall listening to WOWO back in the 1962-65 era?
