Tuesday's edition of "Gil's High School Reunion" will be a special "It's A Bit Cooler Here In Cape Cod" edition. Why, you ask? Well, yours truly has a wedding anniversary to celebrate...something that 5 years ago I couldn't have envisioned happening in a million years.
From 2 to 3 PM eastern, our internet radio time capsule known as The Retro Attic will take you back to 1975-1985 with 16 cuts that will make you smile, cringe or have you checking out Wikipedia because you may not have paid attention the first time around. Some people in this day and age will call some of these tracks "lame" or "crap," but some of those same people are the ones who originally helped to make these big hits. These will be heard at my high school reunion on June 29th, which is just one day out of a 5 year period that my class gets together; it is a day to reminisce and forget about the present. On Monday morning, July 1st, everyone can return their radio dials to normal(clearing my throat now) and have their senses assaulted by Kenny, Brad, Blake, Lady GooGoo and that Minaj gal.
For those who are ready to return to the good old days for an hour tomorrow, the artists featured include Nick Lowe, Sheena Easton, Heart, LeBlanc & Carr, Journey, Missing Persons, Blues Brothers, Crystal Gayle, Dottie West, Elvis Costello, REO Speedwagon, Rick Springfield, Dave Edmunds, Michael Murphey, New England, and Van McCoy & The Soul City Symphony.
Requests for future shows are always accepted; as a matter of fact, I have played some of my classmates' requests already! Visit us at http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.blogspot.com and hop aboard our nostalgia love train!
