JACK ARMSTRONG
WNBC NEW YORK
APRIL 30, 1978 (UNSCOPED)

Big Jack made only one appearance in the Big Apple, but it was memorable.

On April 30, 1978, Jack Armstrong made a one-off appearance on WNBC New York as "The Unknown Deejay." He was fabulous as usual, which leads us to the question we've been asking for nearly 40 years - why  wasn't he hired full time? What a great catch that would have been for WNBC, which needed all the help it could get in the tough battle for New York Top 40 radio ears.

Enjoy Jack Armstrong on WNBC from April 30, 1978, Pt. 1 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Don Shuttleworth for this great aircheck!
