2008/12/27 18:07/21:30 Interesting split show this evening.  The first part, running 39 minutes, is the scheduled, short show just before a basketball game.  The game ended before 10 p.m., though, so the remaining 30 minutes were filled by Mark Simone coming back on the air and playing music.  The interesting thing is that this last 30 minutes was not expected, and Mr. Simone had nothing special prepared.  So he just played songs.  If anything, THIS short segment sounded more like the old WABC than any SNO program ever did, not that they're trying to sound exactly like the old WABC on that program.  But this was a nice, unexpected bonus.  Just music and WABC Musicradio jingles, and on WABC! 39/30 None
