Despite popular demand, Pittsburgh’s WRCT-FM (88.3) will again ring out the old year by turning back the clock 40 years.
In a radio tradition that’s now more than a decade old, and which is tolerated by tens of dozens of listeners, WRCT’s resident oldies guru, Jay Thurber, will count down the top tunes of 1974 this Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
The broadcast also will be available online at www.wrct.org.
The countdown by Kindly Uncle Jay, Your Radio Pal™, who hosts an oldies program on WRCT on Saturday afternoons (www.jaythurbershow.com), will include 1974-current news reports, commercials and other announcements.
The “number one song of 1974″ — as calculated by Jay from a completely scientific (ha! ha!) formula — will be unveiled just before 12 noon.
