Bob Crane Helps WICC Celebrate Its 50th Anniversary ~ January 29, 1976

On January 29, 1976, Bob Crane was in Bridgeport, CT, to help WICC Radio celebrate its 50th anniversary. Bob talks about his time working at WICC from 1951-1956. (Note: WLIZ hired Bob in April 1951, but in November 1951, WLIZ purchased WICC. WLIZ staff, including Bob Crane, took over operations for WICC in early 1952 because it was the stronger signal, and WLIZ went quiet.)



This recording is courtesy of WICC, Bob's cousin and former WICC radio personality Jim Senich, and former WICC radio personality Al Warren. Selected photographs are courtesy of WICC, Scott Crane, Eliot Dober, Bill Dillane, and the Bridgeport Public Library. Some of the photos are poor resolution, but better than not having at all!
