During WPIX's short reign of the New York airwaves, there came an evening in December 1979 when Jock Dan-O Neer commented wistfully -

 "Do you realize that in a few weeks it'll be 1980? The decade of George Orwell's 1984? What a F**king concept!"

After a quick set of songs, and a barrage of phone calls to the studio Dan came back on mic and made some obscure reference to a bunch of chickens just clucking around. When we got through to him, he sheepishly asked, "Did that go out on the air?" We told him yes, it certainly did,. Another moment of radio history no doubt captured on some tapedecks somewhere, but not on ours.
