590 MIGHTY MEMORY #500




PHOTO INDEX: ROCKY GLEN ROLLER COASTER POST CARD AND WARM SURVEY SHEET PROMOTING WARM DAY.

WARM DAY

The highlight of the summer for every listener to WARM Radio was WARM Day at Rocky Glen Park. There are numerous stories that have been told over the years about the event.
Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons pre rehearsing at the WARM Studios.
The personalities being mobbed by the general public.
Entertainers being imported through the crowd by ambulances.
Incredible crowds and excitement.
First name acts that were at the top of the charts. At one time WARM Day had more than a few acts that were in the top ten at the same time.
Little Eva snarling art Harry West.
WARM Day was a culmination of the summer which the radio station cagily built on. By the time WARM Day rolled around at the end of August, it was considered the last big party, the last big blast before hitting the books in high school., going to college, the service or getting a job. WARM Day was a testament and a celebration of the youth of Northeastern Pennsylvania, the youth of WARMland.
From one of the later WARM Days, the Ides of March, a top ten headliner. I think this was WARM Day, 1970.

THANK YOU. I AM TRYING TO POST MORE FREQUENTLY BUT I HAVE ANOTHER POLITICAL BLOG THAT TAKES MORE TIME. MY INTENTION IS TO COUNT DOWN STORIES/MEMORIES FROM 590 ALL THE WAY DOWN TO NUMBER 1.

WARM really is "the station that reaches the beaches", as they used to claim in the late '60s.
