I remember my local station, AM 1490 WOLF Syracuse as one of the 50 stations that aired the 8 hour countdown beginning in 1974 through 1980. Host Larry McKay was employed at top 40 rocker AM 930 KHJ in Los Angeles.

     Can anyone remember the OPUS countdowns and any of the syndicated 50 stations that carried it ??  Post it on the Radio Timeline Facebook group page. Thanks!

   This was my very first original recording from on December 31, 1972 when I was 15 years old in Liverpool, NY. Unfortunately most of the jingles and all commercials were left out. Howie’s first radio gig in the 1960’s was on Radio Caroline then moved to Syracuse’s AM 1260 WNDR in 1968 and AM 1490 WOLF in early 1969 as WOLF changed format from country to The very successful Top 40 (KHJ) DRAKE Radio Format with 20/20 news.
