From the early 80's-00's, after the clock struck 1AM on WBLS, you know who you were listening to, the station's fist female caucasian radio host, the voice of late-night, Champaine. Today we recognize the legendary former WBLS radio personality, who helped shape the sound of our R&B airwaves as we know it today.
The Italian and German, Staten Island native, said she wanted to work for 107.5, since she was a young girl, in school. In 1983, the station manager, radio icon, Frankie Crocker, made Champaine Palumbo's dreams come true.
