CBS-FM celebrates the big 4-0 this weekend!
That’s right. It was forty years ago on July 7th, 1972 that CBS-FM took over the airwaves. Since then we have been bringing your the best music, delivered by some of the most engaging personalities, day and night… and we couldn’t have been happier doing it!
We’ll be celebrating all weekend long as we share the music and the memories that have made the last forty years so great. We even have a few surprises in store for you!
Start the morning off with Dan Taylor as he welcomes special guests Herb Oscar Anderson, Dick Heatherton, former Program Director Bob Vanderhayden, Debbie Brown (former Music Director and Bill Brown’s widow), and Al Meredith. Plus, former newscaster Debra Wetzel returns as well! Don’t miss out, because their might be some more extra special surprises coming your way Friday morning as well.
The celebration kicks into high gear when Cousin Brucie returns to the CBS-FM studio to broadcast LIVE from 6pm-9pm.
The Brooklyn-born Brucie (born Bruce Meyerowitz, later known as Bruce Morrow) joined CBS-FM in 1982, initially filling in for Jack Spector every third Saturday evening for the Saturday Night Sock Hop, but would take over the show in 1985. Other popular programs on Brucie’s resume include his nationally syndicated Cruisin’ America, Cousin Brucie’s Yearbook and Cousin Brucie’s Saturday Night Oldies Party.
Brucie also appeared in film, with roles in “Across the Universe,” “Gas Pump Girls,” “Dirty Dancing” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
Brucie was honored with an induction into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1988, the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in the radio division in 2001 and is the only on-air personality in New York with a street named after him, with former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani proclaiming West 52nd Street Cousin Brucie Way.
Make sure you tune into CBS-FM all this weekend as we deliver more surprises and relive more memories in celebration of our 40th Anniversary!
