Lost Audio from 07/30/2021


It's another Friday afternoon show, this one from October 4, 1985, two weeks after the last one. (Hurricane Gloria had hit the previous Friday, making a show on that date impossible.) Both the actual show for the Long Island area and this week's Stoneyhaven story are focused on the aftermath of the historic hurricane.

(An interesting sidenote: the radio drama "Shadow Over Long Island" (available in our archives) had originally been scheduled for a repeat airing on this date after debuting the previous Sunday on both WUSB and WPKN in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Since airing a mock radio drama about a local nuclear meltdown immediately after a hurricane had hit the area seemed a tad irresponsible, we delayed everything by two weeks, which opened up this timeslot.)
