1739 UTC "My Sweet Lord"-George Harrison (Mostly above the noise floor)
1741 UTC Seems to be a relay of a commercial station with pro-DJ, into "OOH Child"-Five Stairsteps
1744 UTC OM DJ and jingle, with W??? station ID, into "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes"-Edison Lighthouse
1747 UTC OM DJ and "Hitchin A Ride"-Vanity Fare
(I guess this is a Top 500 countdown of sorts...still haven't caught a clear ID...a bit overmodulated at peaks)
1753 UTC "500 Countdown of the last 5 years", into "Woodstock"-CSNY
(From the songs being played, this would date back to the early 70's)
1803 UTC A clear ID also heard as "WWDJ Hackensack" (I also heard an ID earlier as "Radio 97")
1903 UTC 4 musical notes and WBOG ID! THANKS FOR THE BLAST FROM THE PAST!
Thanks for the ID DXAce1!

This old audio recording must be from 1971 or so, as the WWDJ call letters didn't take effect until May of 1971

Here's a link to a recording from 1739-1811 UTC:

This really brings back memories! I was 16 years old in May of 1971 and carried around my little Radio Shack transistor radio everywhere I went....back when I still had the world by the tail...thought I did anyway! The songs were the Top 100 of 1970....
Thanks for the relay whoever!

Is there any chance of getting a copy of the original show recording? I would greatly appreciate it!  :)
