WARM AND THEIR LP
For years WARM was known as the great promoter and purveyor of 45 RPM records. But as the 70s dawned, WARM introduced a long play album promoting the station. Other top 40 giants in the country had done it before, most notably WFIL in Philadelpia and WIBG. In Buffalo WKBW had one as well as the Canadian rocker CKLW. This WARM effort featured big photos of the WARM Good Guys on it. Absent was Program Director George Gilbert. The songs were recent hits from the WARM playlist like “Sweet Talking Guy” and “Judy in Disguise” on side one. Side two had “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison and “Cherry Cherry” by Neil Diamond. The album was on sale at various department stores ranging from $1.99 to $3.50 (depending where you went) and was given away during station promotions on and off the air.
