Cousin Brucie Returning to WABC


Legendary radio personality Bruce Morrow is coming back to 77WABC, the station where he first introduced fans to The Beatles, Motown, 60s soul, surf music, and more. From 6 to 9 pm ET every Saturday night, beginning September 5, Cousin Brucie’s Saturday Night Rock & Roll Party will return to the airwaves at the station he helped build decades ago.

He will also be heard live on 77WABC, New York, sister station WLIR-FM 107.1, Hampton Bays, NY.

“Cousins, this is literally one of the most exciting projects of my life,” said Morrow. “It completes a circle… a career circle. It all started at WABC, and here we are all these years later, and the magic is still here. And what magic we’re going to make!”

Both radio stations and their digital platforms are owned by John Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Media. “Brucie is a national treasure and talent. Listeners everywhere can now hear this radio icon and their favorite music from the early days of rock and roll on our radio stations and streaming on our digital platforms,” commented Catsimatidis. “Red Apple Media is about bringing the best in information and entertainment to New York and all of America however they want to listen… on their phone, radio, smart speaker or computer.”


  1. Never heard of my Cuz Brucie until I stumbled on him one late drive home from work on Sirius. I agree, with all you east coast folks, he’s great! I grew up in California and so our big-time DJ’s were Hunter Hancock, Huggy Boy, Wolfman Jack, Art Laboe, and big live shows at El Monte Legion Stadium, Long Beach auditorium, etc. Not just the 50-60 crisp tunes but all the cool doo-wop too. The best of times!

  2. first of all bruce was fired from serius. its a great idea if wabc would make a full time committment to oldies

  3. There’s a couple of sayings here:

    1) The more things change, the more they remain the same, and,
    2) The music that we ALL grew up with is the music we will love and cherish for the rest of
    our lives.

    P.S. Could Don K. Reed be right behind you, Cousin Brucie?

    • Brucie did his final show on Sirius about two weeks ago, but said he wasn’t retiring…just that something was coming “full circle”….. He was going to take a month long vacation, and be back with something for everyone. I figured that WABC was IT. He was happy on Sirius for 15 years, but just wanted to come ‘HOME.”

  4. Awesome!! We are in California, thank God we have a gigantic radio antenna to pull in WABC. …Oh wait a minute, we’ve got streaming now lol!! Seriously, we will be listening. Not “Sirius-ly”, but Seriously!!! Great news and congratulations to Cousin Brucie. Can’t wait to hear him again. Very uplifting, energetic and positive talent. One of Thee Best.

    • I think that is simply wonderful. This Catsimatidis fellow is to be congratulated. He understands radio and maybe others will take his lead and bring some of the ‘Space Cowboys’ back. The surviving legends who can still deliver compelling radio.

      All that aside, hey Cousin, can you lend me 50 cents?

  5. Somewhere…out in the ether, I can see in my mind that Harry Harrison, Big Dan Ingram and Ron Lundy are smiling tonight…

      • Don’t forget HOA (Herb Oscar Anderson), Bob Babaloo Lewis and Jim Perry. Yep the latter who hosted Card Sharks and Sale of the Century, did Sunday morning from 3-5AM from 1970-1973 and subbed for the other DJs. Great to have Cuz back on 77 WABC.
