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.” That was an extension of years writing radio commercial jingles for local businesses and his earlier songwriting and recording career. Among his records is the 1971 album ‘Until We Meet Again.’ The 11 songs on it were mainly country and pop tunes, some folk, with flashes of early rock n roll.
One track on the album is an ode to the intersection of NY Routes 9 and 2, a traffic flow oddity first built in the 1930’s, 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.”
Tune in WEXT Radio at 97.7 and 106.1 FM, at 89.1’s HD2 station, via online website stream at www.wextradio.org, or by using the free app for iOS and Android devices.
David Allan was the popular host of WRGB’s “Pick-A-Show” airing weekday mornings beginning in 1965. For one hour, live and in color, the local TV viewing audience could participate to win cash and valuable merchandise while learning of the day’s programming.
