WJBK RADIO 1500
— OCTOBER 1957 —
63 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK
The WJBK FORMULA 40 hits was compiled, tabulated and produced by Radio 1500’s Bob Martin and Rosemary McGann.
This survey was tabulated overall by each record’s popularity and its appeal, sales, listener requests and record airplays based on the judgement of WJBK Radio.
Previewed for the week of October 14, 1957
Note: By year’s end, 1957, Casey Kasem was no longer at WJBK 1500. Kasem left Detroit for Buffalo’s WBNY, New York, November 1957. To fill Kasem’s departure, Dan Baxter became the new replacement. Baxter was hired for the all-night shift on WJBK.
Eventually, by early-1958 Tom Clay would fill the time slot allocated the same hours Casey Kasem held prior his exit on WJBK.
