It’s always a pleasure having artists and celebrities in the building — it creates an atmosphere that makes everyone involved that much more proud to be in the radio business. Over the past year here at WCBS-FM, we’ve had the good fortune of being able to rub elbows, and discuss wide ranging topics with some well known names such as Melissa Etheridge, Rick Astley, Debbie Gibson, Frankie Valli, Rick Springfield, James Taylor, Nile Rodgers, Randy Bachman and more.
That’s not even mentioning some of our friends who have called up the ‘Star Phone’, including Barry Gibb, Jon Bon Jovi, Sarah Mclachlan, Meat Loaf, Simon Le Bon, Neil Diamond, Carly Simon, Tony Orlando and MANY more!
So without further ado, here are just TEN of the best interviews, juiciest conversations, and off-the-wall moments that happened in here on WCBS-FM in 2016! Enjoy!
