Two of top 40 radio's greatest stunts involved WMGM.
In 1959, Tripp did a record-breaking 201-hour on-air marathon to promote the March of Dimes.

The year before, WMGM took an on-air call from a man purporting to be Charles de Gaulle.
It wasn't the French president, but a hoaxster from Top 40 rival WINS who announced on the WMGM airwaves, WMGM was born in 1948, when the station changed its call letters from WHN to reflect the ownership of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer by owner Loew's Broadcasting.

Its days as a Top 40 station ended in 1962 when Loew's sold WMGM to Storer for .9 million, then a record for a single station. after Bob Callen played Peppermint Twist by Joey Dee and the Starlighters.
WMGM became WHN again, with a half-hour preview of the new easy-listening format aimed at an older audience. Many more Top 40 stations would follow suit over the years, but these were the '60s and music formats were very much thriving.
Sing a song about Western hero men will never ride the range again. The station at 1050 on the New York AM dial played rock 'n' roll for less than a decade - from the mid-to-late '50s to 1962 - but it was a memorable time.
Top personalities like Ted Brown, Jerry Marshall, Norm Stevens graced the WMGM microphone, as did Dick Shepherd, Bob Callen, Bob Lewis and Peter Tripp.
