My name is Vic
Vincze. I used to live in Bloomfield back in the 60's and 70's,
not too far from WDRC. As a kid I used to take a bus to downtown
Hartford and visit 750 Main Street just to
watch the DJ's. The secretary always kicked me out after a few minutes...oh
well. I guess you can tell I was always a WDRC junkie...always
winning contest prizes and such.
moved to Blue Hills Avenue after the building
remodel, I'd ride my bike or walk to meet some of the on-air guys
that I used to always pester on the phone. Back in 1975 I used to
go there on Mondays to pick up the aired Casey Kasem AT40 (on vinyl).
I still have those LP's.
In 9th grade
I had a photography class, and the project I picked was to take
photos at WDRC (got an A+ for that one). So I'm attaching
7 photos which were taken during early 1977 at the Blue Hills site.
Len Thomas from the back,
on a Gates Stereo Statesman Board.

Dana & Bob Marx close to
Landis in the news room.
5) The old Production room.
Parker meeting with Judd Coursey (Otis
in the Nighttime).
7) Some old rack equipment.
I hope you
enjoyed looking at them. Your website is great. It brings back a
lot of memories for an old radio geek like me. Thanks!
