If you have missed the last day of WGHT, guess what! I posted the entire airchecks of WGHT when it was an oldies/classic hits station. These final shows took place yesterday where it started off with Jimmy and Greta with their last morning show, right up until John Sillman where he his final show for the station. It has been an amazing run of 23 years playing oldies and classic hits. We’ll start off with Art Rooney where he did his last afternoon show on WGHT the day before the very last show. I didn’t record the entire show, so I just posted just the final hour of Art’s last afternoon show. I hope you’ll like it.
Next, Art Rooney who usually did afternoons on WGHT, is also doing his last show. This was a special show for him where he reflected back on WGHT when he did his show for 24 years, and there was one fact that is quite interesting, Art Rooney mentions Dan Ingram and Bruce Morrow, the two legendary DJ’s on both WABC, and WCBS-FM and he was a fan of both NYC DJ’s. He was on for just an hour and this was his special show and it was his last. Enjoy!
And finally, to wrap up this aircheck, John Sillman stepped up the microphone and did his very last show on WGHT. He has been doing middays, and he was also the program director of this station after 23 years. He played great music and many more. And finally towards the end of his final show, he gave us his final sign-off without fanfare, and played the last song. As you probably know, the last song that played on WGHT was “Dance to the Music” by Sly & the Family Stone. After it was over, it played the final sign-off announcement, and then it’s goodbye WGHT. I guess during the announcement that the station will be back on the air tomorrow morning and running WGHT via TuneIn, NO WAY! All you can hear is just dead air, except the TOH AP Newscast running on the hour which is quite strange. I guess WGHT should’ve cut the stream off at that point after 2 PM. Let’s enjoy John Sillman with his very last show on WGHT.
