WMMR’s 50th Birthday

In the early 70s, the voices you may have heard on the WMMR airwaves include Ed Sciaky, Michael Tearson, and David Dye, to name a few… These were your hosts for the sessions that the station broadcast live from Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia. One of these sessions was with folk trio America in February of 1972. They performed “A Horse With No Name” which was a staple of early FM rock, despite the song being banned by some radio stations because of supposed drug references in the lyrics.
