Eastern has always been an airline of “firsts” and the radio show is carrying on that tradition and Legacy.

Episode 418

"Eastern History Set to Music"


The EAL Radio Show shares memories of Eastern history and the songs played during that era in Episode 419 on Monday, June 17, 2019 with the topic none other than "Eastern History Set to Music". What better way than music played during our Eastern days of camaraderie with peers we saw daily. We worked diligently side by side, enjoyed every minute and our peers became our friends.

During all those years our families grew, our friends became our family and the history of Eastern was laid out in a book for all to read years after, to their children, grandchildren and great-grand children and for all future generations. This Eastern history, our "legacy" is a great part of the airline industry that made our country so well known. Eastern was one of the first in the airline history with its fleet of many high powered state of the art airplanes, their people chosen with much attention to detail, and their widespread routes to many countries all over the world taken over by several airline companies when they closed.

Our team will keep you entertained with this "Eastern History Set to Music" at 7:00 P.M. EDT. Some of the great hits during those days dated back when Captain Eddie and Associates bought Eastern Airlines in April 22, 1938 to the sounds "All Or Nothing At All, so we bring you Harry James. This recording we have being sung by "blue eyes" Frank Sinatra. Though we had to leave our and friends we made, those memories never ended. We give you the recording of John Denver, singing "Fly Away".

Join us at the Gate for departure on EAL Flight 418  leaving at 7:00 pm EDT Monday, June 17, 2019 to listen to some great Eastern History played along with some great tunes, that made our days at Eastern memorable.
