With 7 weeks of the year gone, it’s safe to make a cautious 1958
statement... it looks like rock & roll is finding its niche
alongside current and standard ballads in the overall musical
pattern. But, if YOU want to get the whole platter picture stay
with WMCA, 570 on the dial... where the “turntable talk is styled
just for you!” To enjoy these musical moments together, tune in
daily to POP MUSIC (1 to 4 pm) and MUSIC MAKERS (7 to 9:30 pm)...
it’ll be “OK with BK” if you do!
