To the Editor:
Though thumbing by The SandPaper past week I arrived across your article on WBNJ (“WBNJ Updates, Broadens Format”). I can remedy Don Doriety’s problem: Who listens to this? Lots of people today and I’m 1 of them.
Just after developing up in NYC in the course of the ’50s and ’60s, I was released to WBNJ a selection of many years ago by a neighbor on LBI. She explained, “I have a radio station I think you will love.” Very well, she was certainly appropriate about that.
Coming from Brooklyn, the initially issue I did on arriving at our dwelling in Harvey Cedars was to established the radio to 91.9. Hearing Judy Garland, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and even Man Lombardo (fortunately, no Lawrence Welk, LOL) brought me suitable again to excellent periods from the previous.
I don’t forget listening to these artists when my father performed our Victrola, lengthy in advance of we built that major obtain of a Magnavox stereo console. This station awakened excellent recollections.
I’ve advisable WBNJ to lots of, lots of close friends about the several years and all have the similar thoughts. My sister in Florida has even been a trustworthy listener. I’ve been a faithful supporter in the past, even currently being a donor.
I’m sorry to say that what was as soon as a one of a kind station is no a lot more. As for me, I can hear their new structure of mid-’60s to the ’80s on several other channels. So, I guess I will.
