1010 WINS is not clear channel, it's true.

But Mel should think twice before blowing up an institution like WINS, or moving
it  to 880 AM.

Besides being the highest rated station in metro NYC,

If you listen to an aircheck from Alan Freed's nightly show from 1955 on 1010
WINS, (which was, and still is, a good

skywave signal nonetheless) you will hear him backsell a song which was a
dedication from someone in Bermuda.
