Franklyn MacCormack's sponsor back then was Meister Brau beer (The Meister
Brau Showcase).  Norman Ross had a show sponsored by Tallman Savings (Tunes
from Tallman.)

I was a regular Saturday night listener to MacCormack because of his
"Curtain Call" hour from midnight to 1:00 a.m.

<<Thanks Bill. I find it helpful and will give it a listen. During  the past

15 years, I  played a few Saturday weddings up that way and  remember 
listening to him for a while on the way home. When I got too far South,  I'd
tune in 
WKCR-FM, 89.1 at Columbia University, NYC and then WBGO, 88.3 in  Newark.
a few minutes of silence until I got in range of WRTI-FM 90.1  in 
Philadelphia. That was a 160 mile drive home with jazz radio just about all
the way.

For me, it was in the late '60s and very early '70s . . . Saturday nights
the midwest, on the way home from the gig . . . WGN Radio - Chicago, with  
Franklin McCormick and the Tallman All Night Showcase.
Theme song: Melody of Love
Many that guy was good!
Nostalgically yours,
