Listener Comments and Reviews
Looking for a song that was just played (Wed., Jan 25th, @10:20-maybe three songs before the morning show sign off.
Thought the title was mentioned..."Lonely World"? It was all instrumental and very good. If possible, can you tell me if that was the title and who the artist was?

I read, with a great deal of interest-- indeed, wonderment--the historical pedigree of your station in Jeannette, PA. What confounded me is the fact you left out a big chunk of personnel history. Yes, the station that morphed into your current WKFB was WBCW. During the years 1980-1982 (approximately 2 years) I also worked at WBCW!
I hosted PEOPLE TALK using the stage name, "JR." I took over that slot from Al Calisti. He was a firebrand, having been in the vanguard early-on of Conservative Thinking. I further "carried the mail" of Conservative thought during my two-hour show from 1000Hrs to 12 Noon. Verna and Al Calisti hired me on the spot, site unseen, because I stirred hours of conversation subsequent to my phone calls to Al. They were WONDERFUL people, as was their daughter, Jackie. I got paid negligibly, but my name is known throughout the tri-state region of PA, Ohio, W.VA. I left to go to medical school. i am now a physician, still with a strong conservative opinion and loquacious as ever. Grieved to hear about Mr. Calisti's passing. He was quite the gentleman. ClaireThomas, another fabulour individual, followed my show after the noon news break. This is the CORRECT HISTORY and pedigree of your station. I interviewed Barbara Bush in the Fourth Avenue station broadcast studio. Scores of Secret Service men everywhere. Reagan carried Westmoreland County, as some in the know say, BECAUSE of my penetrating interview with Mrs. Bush. I still have the photographs of her in the "lobby" outside the studio, speaking with Verna and myself. Unfortunately, I don't have many tapes of my shows but they were humdingers. I brought it! I loved that work. Please respond to this communicstion to ackowledge. Thanks.

I listen to your radio station everyday because I love the oldies. I love Frankie Day. Then my day gets ruined by the Union Edge talk show. That person really makes me shutter and I was wondering if you could bring my conservative views to your show also. I belong to a conservative group called "People For Liberty"...look at our website www.peopleforliberty.com and feel free to contact me.

Does anybody have any audio of any WBCW programing from the 1970's, 1980's, 1990's??? I used to listen to Al Calisti, Claire Thomas, J.R., tradio, polkas, etc on my grandparents radio. I would love to relive the old times. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks

please tell Frankie day to stop talking over songs. today he played high on a hill and talked over the beautiful beginning vocals. the best part. we quit listening because he talks incessantly and speaks in the third person. this was the first we tuned in for awhile and he spoils listening pleasure.

Love your station! My father and I used to listen to it daily together . I still listen everyday until just about dusk, then another station comes in out of New York, but I just tune in the next day as usual🤗
Keep up the great work! Xoxo

By: bobz on April 1, 2018
I love listening to you, especially now since you play the greatest songs from the 60's in the afternoon instead of that talk show "Union Edge" .
i have a question--I tune in to 97.5 fm but consistently notice a wide variance in reception. I am constantly moving my antenna from day to evening. Do you change your radiation pattern periodically? Sometimes you come in strong but other times have bad reception no matter what.

I just wanted to let you guys know how much I LOVE WKFB. I used to listen to WLSW and enjoyed it, but your selection of music is terrific. I recognize 90% of the music from the 50's and 60's and those good memories come flooding back. Thank you so much for offering this music. Keep up the good work and long live the oldies! :)

One radio station you missed that played some really beautiful Music was WLOA in Braddock It was up near 13th street almost at the entrance to the E T STEEL WORKS.
I don't remember much but my Dad used to listen to it.
Guessing in the late 50s to maybe the 70s.
I'll have to do a little research to see what I can find
By: Ed Goyda on January 28, 2019
I love the music your station plays. Long live 770!
By: Murziee on February 19, 2019
I really enjoy your radio station. How can the signal be boosted to reach more listeners? How can we listen 24/7? Science says that A.M. stations broadcast at further distances that F.M., but as usual, reality dictates that F.M. frequencies are clearer. I have tried to locate your station on the F.M. dial, but to no avail. Any suggestions? Thank you.

A Non Profit Organization I belong to, will be holding an event in June. I'd greatly appreciate your response.
I've heard a few of the free, non profit ads on the station. But I always miss the method (email, phone, etc) to be used, and whether there's a time or word limit to what we submit.
I always have 770 on, and especially enjoy the Saturday morning guys.

Love 770. Love Frankie Day. Just love everything about this station

I love your oldies station. I was in car this past week Tues. or Wed. Aug. 20-21 and you were playing a Happy Birthday song I had never heard before as birthday of person on air was the next day. I couldn't remember the words but it was not the original Happy Birthday Wish, more of a love song. Can you please tell me what the name of the song was. Thank you. by Pat Aug. 24, 2019

Love hearing Cave Man Ralph taking over for Frankie Day.. Cave Man should be on more often.
Please stop Frankie from constantly talking . Over the songs. CONSTANTLY TALKING. Speaking in the third person.
Extremely annoying. I have to put up with his horrible behavior as I love the tunes he plays.
Keep Cave Man Ralph. Love the whole program.
By: Kittie on November 21, 2019
Love all the oldies. Listening to them takes me back to a wonderful time in my life. Dances, drive-ins, and all the other stuff. Please keep playing "songs for lovers" just love them. Thank you and Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year to all.

You may not believe this, but I did the original morning talk show on WBCW. That's right, the very first. I'm an old fart now and live in a different state but still opinionated and would love to return for a day or two of "get-it-off your chest" type conversation. I knew Al, Verna and Jackie Calisti well. Late 60's early 70's.
God Bless anyone left....lol

My Husband loves listening to the 50's and 60's hits. But I would like listening to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole, Inks Spots, Mills Brothers, Tony Orlando, Tony Bennet and the list goes on and on to these smooth listening music.

Thanks for telling the ghost stories on Sunday night and playing the haunting music for Halloween. We thought it was great and enjoyed every minute of it. Keep it going. We're fairly new listener to your station and will be listening more often.

I enjoy your radio station tremendously! I wish you could boost your signal and broadcast 24/7/365. I live in Mars, PA and I can only receive your signal when I place my radio in a weird spot, perched above a kitchen cabinet leaning against the wall. I know you broadcast on FM, but I can not receive those stations at all. Maybe some more sponsors would help with costs. I really wish you could have a signal like KDKA. Your Christmas programs are FANTASTIC!! Not the same 50 songs played over and over and over again like most other stations. That almost ruins Christmas instead enhancing it. Thank you and keep the juice on and the music flowing. GOOD JOB!!

Bo Wagner makes me sick by playing all those Frank Sinatra songs when he is on. Just because he impersonates Frank doesn't mean we as listeners want to hear Frank for 2 straight hours. I have to change the station when Bo is on because I can't stand Frank Sinatra as a singer. I would take Dean Martins music over Franks any day.
