Today is the last day for WPLJ radio in New York City as the station changes ownership. In the 1970s it's slogan was "New York's Best Rock" and shared listeners with WNEW-FM - "Where Rock Lives." WPLJ's most recent format is nothing like it was back then, but the station will definitely be missed by it's current music fans. As you reminisce about your own radio listening, what songs and memories come to mind? We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Simon & Garfunkel "Old Friends"

Led Zeppelin "Immigrant Song"

The Smithereens "Behind the Wall of Sleep"

Elton John "Bennie and The Jets"
