I’m excited about the launch of a brand new feature of ‘Vintage Favourites’ this Easter Sunday. ‘The Fabulous Fifties – and Beyond‘ … spotlights the songs of an earlier era, now forgotten by most radio stations, although still featured on Zoomer Radio. And still loved, not only by those who grew up with those songs, but also by many younger music fans. There was real ‘magic’ in those melodies, excitement in those beats, and passion in those lyrics. Just like the jukeboxes of those old malt shops and the music charts of that time, I’ll feature songs by artists as diverse as Elvis, Buddy, Chuck, Chubby, Brenda and Connie, alongside Sinatra, Bennett and Como, Peggy Lee and Doris Day. The teenagers of the 50s and early 60s loved their songs – and we still do.
‘The Fabulous Fifties – and Beyond‘ will take over the first hour, 2-3pm., followed by our long-standing 3 O’Clock Triple Play, which this year spotlights ‘the greatest groups of our time – in alphabetical order‘, bringing us to The Fifth Dimension this Sunday. Then, our main weekly feature follows, which this week salutes ‘Earth Day’ (April 22nd) with some of the best songs about the environment. ‘Vintage Canadiana‘, celebrating this country’s finest, wraps up each week’s program. Join me for our Sunday afternoon radio tradition – ‘Vintage Favourites’ – Sundays from 2:00 to 4:30, on Zoomer Radio.
