March WBNS Line Up
WBNS AM listeners had a new line up at the top of the dial as of March 5, 1973.
Well, at least in the mornings. The host line up was already in place for the rest of the daily schedule.
Long time host, and holder of the morning show duties after the morning news block known as Breakfast News Service (get it BNS), Bill Hamilton, was severely missed by his fans.
Hamilton had worked for the station since the late 50's and had handled afternoon drive duties from November 1966 until Early Worm Irwin Johnson's retirement in 1969.
Hamilton then took over mornings until the Breakfast News Service program cut into his time and then was totally out the picture when Bob Conners was hired to do morning drive as depicted in the ad.
