“GOOD-BYE, LUV” RON LUNDY 1935-2010

If you are under 45 years old, you probably have no idea who Ron Lundy is. Lundy, one the great voices of 77 Music Radio WABC a radio station that just screams of summertime, school yards and stick ball games of my youth, whose signature open was “Hello Luv, From The Greatest City in the World I’m Ron Lundy” then he’d play a Beatles song, or a Rolling Stones Song, or a Temptations song or a …………well, you get the picture.     

Lundy passed away yesterday at the age of 75, and his death just makes you realize more and more the lack of personality on radio today. What a shame !

  1. Thanks for posting this Steve. There’s hope for you after all.

    I was partial to WMCA myself because of the longer playlist.

    Rest in peace, Ron and thanks for some great radio.

    Ron Lundy, Chuck Taylor, the great Dan Ingram and while I was never a Brucie fan, he was there forever. Hell, I remember driving with my dad and hearing William B Williams, Clavin & Finch and the rest at WNEW.
