The beat goes back on
My favorite internet station for playing this music is RichBroRadio. After being on the air (web) for around ten years Rich signed off when he moved recently from San Diego to Tucson (obviously for the weather). During that time I sampled lots of other '60s stations and they either played the same twelve songs, or they played 12,000 songs (most of which no one has ever heard of -- even the artists who recorded them), or had as many commercials as terrestrial stations, or had amateur presentations, or played Tiny Tim.
Yes, there's satellite radio, and their '60s channel is good (especially when Pat St. John is on during middays) but there are times of the week you have to suffer through Cousin Brucie. That's like putting a power drill to your ear.
Happily, RichBroRadio is back on the air. If you want a great variety of oldies, some "oh wow" songs you haven't heard in years but actually remember, vintage radio jingles, a slick and professional presentation, and no Cousin Brucie this station is for you. Just log on here.
You'll have fun fun fun until daddy takes the Wifi away.
