Nearly 40 years after WRVR New York discontinued Jazz programming, fans have remained nostalgic about their beloved station broadcasting out of Woodside, Queens. My goal is to advance the mission of WRVR in some small way.
Thanks to orangedrop76 for saving this piece of history and setting the groove for this inaugural tribute to the Golden Age of Jazz in NYC. The audio quality is good and the short playlist is representative of what you would hear on RVR in the late 70’s. The original commercials and announcer fills by G. Keith Alexander are included.
I welcome any suggestions, remembrances and requests from fellow fans of the station.
Tonight’s featured tune is Ornithology by Eddie Jefferson.
