Class of 79 Reunion Rewind
With Wally Wingert
On Labor Day Weekend, 2019 the Aberdeen Central Golden Eagles Class of 1979 flew back home for a weekend of amazing fun and remembrances. To help these returning Eagles celebrate, 107.7 KABD asked Central alum and Hall of Fame member (and former Aberdeen radio DJ) Wally Wingert to present an amazing 6 hour radio extravaganza that afternoon from 12 noon to 6pm. “The Class of ’79 Reunion Rewind” features Wally’s personal stories and recollections of growing up in the Hub City in the 70’s. Plus, Wally spun some of his favorite music of the 70’s. Rock, disco, pop – everything!
For six full hours, 107.7 KABD suspended its usual programming so the Aberdeen Central Class of 1979 can usurp the format for their own personal celebration. The show is theatrically staged as if the Class of ’79 electronically hijacked KABD’s signal.
This event had every ear in Aberdeen and the surrounding area breathlessly tuned in to 107.7 KABD FM to hear what craziness ensues. If you missed the show, or want to relive the day again take a listen to the different segments below.
