All reception direct-- From my location, radio and antenna.

Ugh :( - wish I had been around to have heard it.  I lived in NYC at the time and WABC was always on the transistor.  Legendary DJ Dan Ingraham hosted the Top 100 of 1969 program and there were remarkable songs on that playlist.

Here is a picture of a station promo of the playlist, an annual publication: https://www.etsy.com/listing/894618994/the-top-100-hits-of-1969-wabc-radio-77?show_sold_out_detail=1&ref=nla_listing_details

Here is a more readable version of the playlist: https://www.musicradio77.com/Top1969.html

In an aside, 770 WABC's mainstay DJ Bruce "Cousin Brucie" Morrow from the 60's and 70's returned to WABC about a year and a half ago to host a Saturday Evening oldies show (2200 utc summer/2300 utc winter), probably can be heard through the eastern half of US after sunset.  https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,71271.msg240243.html#msg240243

Tecsun H501x (broadcast received on this unless noted), Zenith T/O G500, Zenith T/O Royal 7000, Emerson AR-176, Zenith 8S154, T/O 7G605 (Bomber), Tecsun PL-600, Tecsun PL-880, Zenith 5S320, Realistic DX 160 using 40 feet of copper wire.  With apologies to Senator Gramm for his thoughts on firearms, "I have more radios than I need but not as many as I want."
QTH:  Durham, Connecticut (rural setting, 15 miles north of Long Island Sound)

If anyone is interested, I found the original broadcast here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc_B-6dVnm0 . It looks like this station was rebroadcasting this recording.
