Thread: WOCN Ed Winton music library

    Re: WOCN Ed Winton music library

    WINZ-FM was actually sold by Rex Rand to Arthur Zucker who had worked for him. Call letters changed to WAEZ and located studios to the basement of the Deauville Hotel with the tower on the roof. I got quite an education working as a disk jockey under the direction of program director Roger Harvey. One of the first FM only popular music commercial radio stations in the country. Despite the superior audio quality, FM didn't really take off as a true competitor to AM until FM became common in cars.

    I was also fortunate to host the first radio show on the new WPBF-FM (sister station to the highly successful WIRK am in West Palm Beach). WPBF eventually evolved to WIRK-FM (the country K) under the ownership of Joe Field, Rome Hartman and Jim Barnette. I eventually moved up to general sales manager unti shortly after the stations were sold to Price Communications.

    I should have mentioned this a long time ago. WOCN's record library was purchased by Joe Amaturo for use on what was then WGLO 106.7. WGLO did their own in house beautiful music format. WGLO had a music dubbing studio with state of the art McCurdy console and Thorens turntables. The automation tapes were made there.
    Out of the money demo...all the way out!

    There was another copy of all of WOCN music at WWBA Tampa. Ocean's music also made in house on 10 inch & 7 inch home made reels that I used to record from records to tape and make copies for WWBA. Alot of the records had a WAEZ stamp on them. I did that for years at WOCN. No idea where the tapes are now.

    I remember listening to 107.3, WWBA, in the late 70's and early 80's, when they were playing the tapes which you recorded.
    My old friend, Bob Hughes, worked for WWBA at the time.
