This is the story of a birthday gift. It’s a belated gift from my cousins Michael, Melissa and Max. It was well worth waiting for!
There were two top-40 radio stations in New York through most of the 60s. WABC was the big dog. WMCA was the obvious lower cost operation. Here’s one of their most memorable jingles.
However, WMCA had one iconic feature. Multiple times every day WMCA gave away Good Guys sweatshirts.
As far as I can tell it was the world’s first use of the smiley face!
I really, really, really wanted a WMCA Good Guy sweatshirt… and now I’ve got one!
