WECK After Hours with Moon Rivers
Steve on WECK Blog
This week we've been looking back at the history of 1230am.
 
For 20 years, Tiny WNIA had a powerhouse sized influence on rock 'n' roll radio in Buffalo, from the same ranch house we broadcast from on Genesee Street. 
 
From Mike Melody's "Make Believe Ball Room," to "Be Big... BE A BUILDER," to Richard Maltby's Midnight Mood, WNIA and 1230am were very much a part of the tapestry that made up life as a teenager in Buffalo in the 50s and 60s.
 
By the late 70s, those days were over, the station was sold. WNIA became WECK, "The Roll that Rocks."
 
Get it? WECK Roll? Anyway, 1230 grew up with those 50s and 60s rock 'n' rollers and was spinning the disco tunes with DJs like Frankie Nestro in the late 70s and early 80s.
 
After years of "Music of Your Life," then talk for a while.. we're now back to our roots as Buffalo's home for Good Times, and Great Oldies... Buffalo's Very Own WECK.
