Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ed Salamon was program director of WHN radio from 1975-1981, the period when it held a #2 ranking in the New York market and became the most listened to country music station of all time. He was inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2006. Salamon left WHN to form the United Stations, a radio syndication company, with Dick Clark and others. He was head of programming for that and its successor companies for more than twenty years, ultimately serving as president/programming for the Westwood One radio network. Salamon has been an adjunct professor at Belmont University and Middle Tennessee State University. He is also the author of “Pittsburgh’s Golden Age of Radio” (Arcadia Publishing).

I am a radio geek, so I am probably a little biased. I also happened to love WHN in the seventies and eighties when they had a Country Music format. If you enjoyed Rick Sklar's "Rockin' America", a personal account of WABC, you will enjoy Ed Salamon's account of the history of one of the greatest Country stations in history.

Ed Salamon was Program Director of the station and told it's history, before, during and after his tenure.

If you are curious about the inner workings of WHN, or if you interested in Country music and how it did in one of it's tougher markets, or just in radio in general, you will love this book.

Ed Salamon has written a wonderful history of how
WHN...took over New York City.

And to think they said it couldn't be done!

Well he and his team did it and did it well.

Congrats to Ed. What a great book!...I loved it!
