The "WBAB Homegrown Album" is the first
compilation album recorded for
WBAB-FM in Babylon, New York. The album was manufactured in
1981 at PRI Record Pressing in Wyandanch, New York. It was
designed to commemorate some of the station's best local acts
and performances culled from the station's "Homegrown Hour"
program, a show dedicated to promoting bands based on, or
somehow tied to Long Island, New York.
One year later, the station released a second album called "Son
of Homegrown," which was pressed on red vinyl. A third album
from 1984 was known as "WBAB Homegrown '84:" a.k.a. "Homegrown:
The Next Generation," some copies including a WBAB Homegrown
picture disc. Neither this album, nor the next two were ever
re-released on CD.
