Hello everybody, this is John Porcaro, Webmaster of the 97/WWDJ Memorial Page. When I started this site in August of 1998, the purpose of it was to be a depository for information relating to this Top40 New York market radio station that lasted a little under three years (nothing fancy, just plain old info!). I loved the station, it was great to have while driving back & forth to school and also cruising around at night with my friends. I am inviting anybody that was a fan of this station to go back to some of the links I have below just to revisit some of the memories. I haven't done much with it in the last 10 years , but then again I think I've pretty much covered everything I could . I've been fortunate that people have giving me information, graphics, etc. that I could share on this page. 

That being said, John Brown, former Music Director at the station has given me two pictures that I did not have before, one of former DJ Ronnie Grant and one of the Magic Bus! 

I've also included an aircheck link to give you some taste of what the station sounded like that last weekend (lots of Steve Clark) . A lot of funny stuff!

Thanks again to everybody who helped me with this page over the last 26 years (Yikes!!!).
