But, it's the "Gay, gay Phil Christy Show" and it's obvious Christy has a pleasantly dry sense of humor.
Reynolds was an early influence on my interest in radio.
I listened to him nights on 'KB - sounding a lot like this aircheck, fading in and out a bit, but generally strong at my house in Waterford, NY.
WNBC was obviously trying very hard to sound as boring as possible in this aircheck, playing several slow songs in row - probably to contrast the coming change to full out Top 40. At the time, Steele was retiring from his daily Monday-Saturday programs.
He remained on Saturdays weekly for many years, and eventually went to once monthly.
