I hope you're enjoying our unique musical trip back to yesteryear! I strive to bring back some attention to many records that got left in the bottom of program directors' mailbags, mainly because there was once a time where the music industry was thriving so much that some artists(whether they deserved to or not) didn't get a chance to be heard.
Coming in October, I will be doing a test run of a show I am tentatively calling "The Other Grooves - The American Bottom 45." I will be picking a week from October from a past year and will be counting down all of the records that sat between #41 and #100; there will also be a bonus "Under The Bubble" cut. I figure that top 40 countdowns have been done to death already, and besides, I will be playing records at some point that were on their way to or had been in the top 40. This also means I will be doing more commentary, which may or may not be a good thing! You may be thinking to yourself "why aren't you counting down 45 instead of 60?" It's because I'm referring to 45 as in a 45 rpm record, which is what the Hot 100 charts were all about! The show's premiere will air twice a week during October; your feedback will be crucial in my determining whether it will be worth making future editions of the show or not.
Our respective Artists Of The Month during September and October will be Chicago and Paul Revere And The Raiders; more information can be found a little further down on the right side of our webpage.
I look forward to handling more of your challenging requests in the days, weeks and months to come. Please tell all of your friends about us!
