CBS-FM Helps Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Master FM Antenna Atop the Empire State Building

Hope you had your radio dial tuned (or app launched) to CBS-FM and your eyes fixed on the Empire State Building on Thursday, October 29th at 7PM when WCBS-FM helped the Audio Engineering Society celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Master FM Antenna on top of New York City’s most iconic building.

A special vignette aired with CBS-FM’s Dan Taylor prior to the 7PM start, leading to a masterful light show designed by renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman, on the top of the Empire State Building to the tune of “FM (No Static At All)” by Steely Dan.
