WCIN Cincinnati Radio - 51 years photos and more
Craig W recently posted up a photo of a 60s soul playlist from WCIN Radio, this set me off on a dig for more info and on my travels found a website devoted to the station. Recently celebrated its 50th anniversary the site whilst a bit brief, and the anniversary was last year, would say it may be of interest for those with a interest in the history of soul music, with photos and recollections from some of the djs from over the years.
From the first time 1480 WCIN did its first broadcast in 1953, the station has proven itself to be an integral part of the Greater Cincinnati metro community and the national music industry. It was in October of 1953 when the city of Cincinnati heard WCIN on the air with its first show. That broadcast was an early morning one hour gospel music program. In the span of 50 years WCIN would lead in promoting some of the best music in the industry. 1480 WCIN introduced people to music greats like Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, James Brown and Aretha Franklin. WCIN set the important precedents that have made radio a viable part of the music industry..........
