WPLJ 95.5 signs off today after a long run. If you lived in the tri-state area you listened to this station at some point in your life.

I grew up with a radio and tape recorder next to my bed ready to hit record at any moment during PLJ's core album rock phase. My teachers were Jim Kerr, Pat St. John, Jimmy Fink and Carol Miller. RIP WPLJ

Same, some of their live shows = seminal recordings. It connected our city, + although its been a while for me (like all nyc stories go) it will be missed, the voices above remembered for their curation and guidance.

Though I quickly drifted to WLIR and WPLJ lost relevance.

Funny to think a generation of us grew up this way - with tape after tape of songs with the first few seconds clipped

Exactly right, it was WLIR back then and it was amazing station - there is doc on it on netflix - If I had to name my station it was WNYU The New After Noon Show - still is, and I still tune-in (online)
