In 1980, Scott Shannon of WPLJ in New York was the program director for WPGC in Washington DC. For two hours every Sunday night he would bring in some great oldies and play them along with sharing some stories about the artists. (The best part of the shows). These two hour programs are some of the best oldies shows you will hear. Here are three unscoped airchecks (six hours) of those shows.
