WARM REUNIONS

The Mighty 590 was so big a factor in this community that every time a few people get together and talk about their youth you can classify it as a WARM Reunion. Last year Pete Gabriel passed through the area and a few late era WARM staffers got together with him. The Pocono Drag Lodge is going to focus on a WARMland reunion this year after their highly successful Drag Lodge get together last year. In the mid 90s 0ne of the most significant WARM reunions of talent took place when staffers from WSGD FM, then a powerhouse Oldies Station run by the late Ron Swanson hosted a group of WARM members. The reunion actually came about because of this first reunion at a Red Barons Baseball game in 1991. When the WSGD FM On Air Reunion took place in the mid 90s, it was like a rekindling of the old days and magic that was WARM. There are actual tapes of those broadcasts that exist to this day. The photo above is just a snapshot of the talent that passed through the doors of the Mighty 590, WARM. That’s why WARM is going to live on in the hearts and mind of many people who were touched by the station in some way shape or form. WARM played this song by Tommy James and the Shondells called oddly enough "Gettin' Together". When that song was popular, no one imagined how real the sentiment of this song would be.

That first reunion took place in 1992... there was a second one around Labor Day, 1996.
