Comments: Journey to a Star Castle anyone? The ad above is memorable because it’s a 2-page spread—unimaginable riches for our concert program—and a historic reminder that WNEW was the radio station that changed the nature of radio from Top-40 to long format music while spawning a legion of radio personalities. Among them are Dennis Elsas, Pete Fornatale and Vin Scelsa who can all be heard on WFUV now.
WNEW broadcast many shows live from the Capitol Theatre. That was long before broadband Internet, so a telephone crew was necessary to locate and connect a series of data-capable lines all the way from the Capitol in Passaic to New York City for every broadcast.
