In the 1960s, broadcasting from WABC-AM in New York City, fast-talking “Cousin” Brucie Morrow was considered the world’s most popular disk jockey, with 250,000 fan club members and millions of listeners. Born Bruce Meyerowitz in Brooklyn’s Flatbush, Morrow’s first job in radio was in Bermuda and after stints in Miami and New York’s WINS, he ultimately moved to WABC. A friend to Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka, Carole King and other stars, Morrow’s return to New York City was at the beginning of the British Invasion, and he helped introduce the Beatles to American audiences. Morrow worked for WABC for 13 years and more than 4,000 broadcasts until August 1974, when he transferred to rival radio station WNBC; after three years there, he quit performance to team with entrepreneur Robert F.X. Sillerman to become the owner of the Sillerman Morrow group of radio stations. In the early 1980s, he resumed work as a radio announcer and has been working steadily as a radio announcer, host, and deejay ever since. He currently hosts programs for Sirius XM satellite radio’s ’60s on 6 channel.
