The Attic Classic: Longtime Capital Region radio and TV personality David Allan is perhaps best known by the local baby boomer generation for the song “Let’s Have a Party, Albany.” Other generations may remember him hosting “Pick-A-Show” for years on WRGB TV, a combination game & talk show in which viewers could call in to win cash prizes. Others may remember him as an on-air show host and announcer at various stops on the radio dial; local businesses for him writing their radio commercial jingles.

Then there’s David’s early songwriting and recording career. Among his records is the album ‘Until We Meet Again’ released in 1971. The 11 songs on it were mainly country and pop tunes, some folk, with dips into early rock n roll.

This brings us around to the Attic Classic. One track on the album is an ode to the intersection of Routes 9 and 2, a traffic flow oddity first built in the 1930s, then reconfigured in the late 1950’s so that 9 would pass straight through under 2. There was even a shopping mall named after it.

I’m sure you’ve figured out that the title of the Attic Classic is “Latham Circle.”
