Tonight, I'm adding in new blocks for 1967, 1969 and 1959, with featured lost oldies from The Peanut Butter Conspiracy, The Zombies, and Gary Stites.
You will hear some changes beginning with the above blocks. The 4 top 40 hits in each block will include a Billboard peak position jingle(I have always included that info in the metadata, aka "that artist/song title stuff that should be displaying in your media player") and the featured lost oldie will include some quick facts/commentary from me. Yes, I said "commentary!" You want some personality on this station...okay, you will get it! Heck, I may even add in my local weather and local concert listings sometime soon. There will also be a few surprises thrown in from time to time, such as soundbites, vintage radio ads, etc. Some certain individuals aren't going to like the increased talking(especially considering where it will be placed), but c'est la vie...whatever it takes, I want to see true loyal Listeners, not "listeners." I hope this makes sense; without coming right out and saying it, I was making reference to a rampant problem that a lot of internet radio broadcasters experience.
A couple of other sidenotes...Linda Ronstadt will be our Featured Artist Of The Month in April, and I am looking to showcase around 100 of her classic tunes. Other artists coming up later in the spring and summer include The 4 Seasons, Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, Sonny And Cher, and The J. Geils Band/Peter Wolf.
I have also added a new poll on my webpage where I am asking you to choose some new 1 hour show ideas I am currently considering to start in May. There are 7 choices, and you can make multiple selections. Visit http://retroatticrareoldiesradio.com to tune in; the poll is located near the bottom of the page, down the right side. I will share the poll in a separate entry in a few minutes from now. Thanks in advance for your help and for your continued listening!
