Buffalo in the 70’s: WYSL/WPHD Album Charts and Jock Pics

By Steve Cichon

Buffalo, NY – Ranging from 1971-1979, these singles and album charts from WYSL and WPhD are a great snapshot of what Buffalo was listening to musically and on the radio in the 70s.

And as far as the jock photos– let’s just say we all looked great in the 70s. Thanks to Paul, who gave me most of these charts for “safe keeping” a few years back.

Shane Brother Shane: Buffalo’s Poet Laureate

By Steve Cichon

@stevebuffalo

I started trying to describe Shane to a co-worker the other day…. But there’s no way to describe the Cosmic Cowboy…. Buffalo’s Shane Brother Shane.

shane

From the Day he arrived in Buffalo in 1974 for WKBW’s Great American Talent Search wearing pants with SHANE written in studs up and down the legs, to the day he ran for Common Council in Buffalo, Shane always kept the Queen City on its ear. Please share your Shane memories below… and enjoy some audio clips from Shane’s stellar Buffalo Radio career…
