The Oldies Meet and Greet has come a long way since the mid-1990s when a few of us from the WCBS-FM folder on AOL met for lunch. It evolved into a group protesting the dreadful format change at the station and then into a group of enthusiasts of Saturday Night Oldies on WABC. Today's gathering of 38 including people who have come for years and some newcomers. Some of the oldtimers included:
- Linda Cohen
- Terri Du
- Bill Dillane
- Jon Binstock
- Alan Ross
- Bobby Backman
The first-timers included:
- Tom Natoli who used to win all the time on Tuesday Night Trivia on WCBS-FM
- Charlie Menut
Most of the events featured radio personalities or musical performers. Today's guest was Ken Dashow of Q-104.3 who also appeared in 2015. After he ate lunch with us he spoke about the Beatles and answered questions about the greatest musical group in history.
I can't wait until next November for the next event.
