Today in 1971: Frankie Crocker on WLIB-FM (before the call letter change to WBLS). For more vintage music radio, please visit the RadioMaven77 page and "like" us. It's comfort food for your ears.

Is there anyone associated with this page who knew or is related to Frankie Crocker? I'm writing a book, and some of the information I'm gathering concerns Mr. Crocker's time in Los Angeles during the mid to late 70s. Any help would be most appreciated. My email is [email protected]. Thank you!
I’ve been trying to get the name of the instrumental jazz song that Frankie played in the background when he was speaking. It started with a trumpet (I believe) in the foreground. Someone told me it was Vaughn Harper, I’m sure it was Frankie. Real mellow and sweet sounding horn, playing a few bars. C’mon Frankie scholars!! Help a Sister out!!🤣🤣🤣. “Bah bah bah bahhhh bahhhh.....bah bah bahhhh bah bahhh bahhhhhh....!🎺🎺🎺
Two of Two Tried to recreate an early 80’s WBLS feel.
I’m a huge Frankie Crocker fan. I put this together a while ago as a tribute mix. One of Two
Do anyone remember the name of the song that Frankie would play when it was time for him to go off the air, it went like this there I go there I go there I go. 
A Beautiful song.
