I don't think there are national commercials on these Brett. I had to work fast to get this one on so I didn't get to preview any of it. But I'm not hearing "Prostate 'n' Progressive" blocks so I assume not. Gary Owens is a low-key hoot in this show!
By the way, apologizing for the hourly legal IDs crashing into Morgan's top-of-hour intro. Those things are set for music to follow them, not hard vocal intros. Had I more time I would have adjusted like on the morning show. Other than that, all 4 OEs will play and Gary will keep us smilin'.
I have been trying to figure out how I know Gary's voice from my youth. It took Wikipedia to remind me he was the announcer for "Garfield and Friends"
For those of us whose youths occurred somewhat earlier--1968 to 1973--he will be forever remembered as the hand-to-the-ear announcer on "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In". One of the best 'radio voices' ever.

First of all thank you Ken Martin for bringing your station into the 21st Century in the world of streaming. Maybe there may be a chance in the future to catch part 2 of the first hour of the number one songs of the '70's on your fine station one day. Hearing this special AT40 with Gary Owens brings back memories because while Gary was doing his own show of Soundtrack of The '60's on 97 WYNY 8am-11am, he was guest hosting AT40 on 66 WNBC in NYC 8am-12noon at the same time period on Sunday September 13.1981. Countdown Mike, thanks again to you and your PD for having guts and once again going off the format playing the archives of the '60's something most stations will never do in big markets.
He said that The Captain & Tennille had the biggest hit by a married duo. Since C & T have divorced, who has that honor now?
In a way this still counts - they were of course married when it hit, that they're not now is arguably a moot point. Otherwise, what hits are there, if any, by couples who are married now but not then?
