Before Philadelphia’s American Broadcast Company affiliate was WPVI it was WFIL, and it had a sister radio station on the AM dial that played a heavy rotation of top forty hits and a whole lot of commercials.
All of the kids in grade school listened to the omnipresent radio personalities spin 45RPM bubblegum records while talking over half the song. It was irritating at the time, but now I realize that was part of the charm of the now vanished AM radio stations.
The deejays are pictured on the back of this album, but I’m not sure if they appear on any of the tracks. There might not be much room for them among the vinyl grooves considering that this album contained 20 songs! That was a lot for a record.
The next time I’m down on Chestnut Street, I’ll have to see what stands at 1005. It was the home of Lost-Nite Records when this album was released in what was probably the late 1960s.
