Classic Mr NYC

This is probably my favorite blog post of all. A year about I wrote about Allison Steele, an old-school New York radio DJ who did overnights on the old WNEW and K-ROCK for over 20 years. She was a phenomenal talent who had a voice that was truly magical. She died of cancer in 1995 but I've never forgotten her.

Remembering Alison Steele, "The Night Bird"


  1. I do remember her from WNEW along with Pete Fornatel (SP?). That was a great station before it went talk and whatever it is now (Fresh or some other insipid term for LITE).

  2. I remember Pete Fornatel too, he was a real talent too. I don't recall them on WNEW but on K-ROCK, back in the day, they were part of a great line-up including Dave Herman and Maria Molito. Great days.


Please keep it civil, intelligent, and expletive-free. Otherwise, opine away.
