It was fifty years ago to the day, July 28th, 1965 that WARM Day was held. There were various WARM days t Rocky Glen Park through the years but this one was the grandest of all. The music had The Four Seasons (riding high on the charts) headlining. Frankie Valli rehearsed at the WARM studios with Tommy Woods. The crowd was so big that Valli and the Seasons had to be brought through to the stage via ambulance. A Hammond organ had to be brought in because the Seasons did everything live, eschewing lip syncing. Others on the bill were the Beau Brummels, Cannibal and the Headhunters, with local talent like Mel Wynn and the Rhythm Aces and even the Joe Nardone All Stars who were a mainstay at San Souci almost every day of the week.
For WARM, it was a celebration of 25 years. (The station went on the air in 1940 but later became the Mighty 590 in June of 1958. Later, a magazine called Amusement Business published by Billboard) featured WARM Day and brought the event and WARM national attention.
We reported on that in 2017 and here’s that link: https://david-yonki.blogspot.com/search?q=magazine+ 
Here’s what the Seasons, the Brummels and Eddie Rambeau sang:
