The Great Ron Lundy: Goodbye, Love
I was so sorry to see that the great Ron Lundy has passed away. The legendary WABC DJ died from a heart attack on Monday at age 75.
David Hinckley has a nice piece on him today in the New York Daily News.
Lundy was part of WABC’s killer quartet from the 1970s (he actually started there in 1965). Ron bounced onto the air after Harry Harrison at 10AM with a booming, ebullient welcome with these words: “Hello, Love!” He was followed in the order by Dan Ingram and Cousin Brucie. Don’t kid yourselves: through the ten most important years in rock and roll history, from 1970 to 1980, these guys ruled the airwaves and literally created the soundtrack that has become classic pop. When WABC switched to talk in 1982, it was one of the saddest days in th
at history. But the gang moved to WCBS FM, where they got to recapture their golden days.
Here’s a clip from' YouTube:
Ron, thanks for everything.
