Next caller, “Mister Zip” says he likes Jeannie (last caller). They talk about WBZ being on reduced power at the present time. Mister Zip speaks with Larry about a friend of his. This conversation would be politically incorrect today. It would create a massive uproar, with calls for the announcer’s resignation despite apologies. Larry is able pull it off due to the times being different 35 years ago.

The next call is another example how very much times have changed in the past 35 years. Cliff from Amesbury, a first time caller (round of applause) opens up by saying Larry sounded like Anita Bryant a few minutes ago. Larry, not knowing where he was going says because he had a glass of orange juice? Cliff continues: saying to Larry “has it every hit your family?” meaning homosexuality. Cliff tells a story of how he is straight, but his brother is homosexual. Larry stands his ground making his argument. Cliff makes his claim that it hit close to home. Cliff tells a story that his brother was supposed to be married to another man previously. Cliff uses the word “Gay” referring to his brother. Perhaps one of the first times the word Gay has been used. An amazing debate!Larry Glick WBZ February 11, 1978 (Pt1)

A huge blizzard is expected to slam the Northeast this Friday February 8th, 2013. Up to 3 Feet of snow is expected in the Boston area. The media is comparing this to “The Great Blizzard of 1978”.
Thanks to Bob Zosa for jogging my memory with his comment from the January 27, 1978 Larry Glick clip, I realized that I had a tape of WBZ that night during The Larry Glick Show. Noticing that I was not going to get the commentary and audio uploaded before the 2013 Blizzard hit, I decided to splice some of the blizzard news that went on during Larry’s program.
Here’s 38 minutes of Larry’s show that night.
We will get the entire 2-hour (4 part) clip uploaded sometime in the future.
It is interesting to note just how much we relied on radio for breaking news and weather information 35 years ago.
