Sunday 12pm: Vinyl Resting Place with Willie B

vrp-1968Today on the Vinyl Resting place – starting at noon – it’s 1968 all over again. We replay some of the big news events of the year – along with 42 songs – right off the pop charts of the year (plus one hanger on by the Royal Guardsmen). By and large, by today’s standards, most of the pop hits of the days would be called easy listening or MOR – but back then – they provided an odd background to a year filled will social unrest and violence, and war, and, a trip around the moon – here are the songs you’ll hear (if you listen for 3 hours) – in alphabetical order by artist…
