      DEE JAY'S CORNER...
      WMCA is the station you tune to by _choice_, not by chance...
      and _your choices_ make up the musical pattern of this easy
      listening spot on the dial at 570!  The millions of listeners in
      the Metropolitan area represent a wide variety of preferences...
      and though there appears to be a trend toward more country
      western and Dixie type melodies, what you _all_ will like in '58
      is anybody's guess!  But in any event, you'll get the _best_ --
      and hear them first -- when you tune to WMCA!
