Welcome to 1959-1960! WNOE was a top-rated high-energy Top-40 radio station in New Orleans during a time when AM was King. Most car radios wouldn't even receive FM!

WNOE threw out a monster 50,000-watt signal on 1060 AM that blanketed much of the South.

This is an actual 10-minute recording of WNOE during those years, accompanied by vintage postcard views of New Orleans. The sound quality is poor in a few places because the recording was made several hundred miles away from New Orleans.

It's 1959 & 1960 again, and welcome to New Orleans, the Crescent City, and the great wild sound of WNOE! What are your memories of New Orleans?
