TIME MACHINE TUESDAY NUMBER 4

The fourth of what will hopefully be many memories from a life of both rock and roll, not to mention radio, television, drinking, and debauchery. Shall we begin?

A decade or two ago, Todd Miller launched an Internet Radio Station called Radio That Doesn’t Suck, and I was asked to contribute a program.

I came up with Radio Zombie, a 2 hour block of programming that featured favourite records of mine from the ’40s to the latest, usually clumped together in a kind of free-form, loosely connected fashion, focusing on whatever I was listening to at the time.

This episode was a favourite.

Informed by my love of Doo-Wop records, I decided to do a dedication at the top of the show, and then just play the songs, period radio commercials, and production I had done at home and with Michael White for MusicMusicMusic. Sprinkled throughout, are old Station I.D.s from the likes of KHJ in Los Angeles, and KFRC in San Francisco, with the stations call letters removed.

If you are under 40 years of age, you have probably heard only 30 or 40% of this material, if that.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy this stroll through some of my fondest musical memories, and get some laughs from the clearly ridiculous commercials.

Still …Would I ever love to get my hands on a terrestrial radio station AM or FM, and turn radio on its head.

Enjoy ….and Thanks, Todd.
