WGCH-FM - Greenwich, Connecticut

For a few brief years, following World War Two, Greenwich, Connecticut had its own FM station, dedicated to the service of the community. It played a variety of music but concentrated mostly on light classical and classical themes. It featured discussion programs, interviews with Greenwich personalities, including pianist Alec Templeton, opera star Robert Merrill, radio/TV personality Bud Collyer, and even a weekly quiz program from the stage of the Pickwick movie theater.

All that remains today are a few air checks dating from 1949 to 1952. They have been carefully and lovingly remastered in digital format to preserve them for future generations.
