Last week on The Vinyl Resting Place we paid tribute to the Late Chuck Berry with some interviews with, and a few hours of Live concert performances by, the father of Rock and Roll. This week we let other’s pay the tributes, as all of Chuck children are out there, playing his licks. You’ll hear 3 hours of the most amazing covers of the best in rock and roll – and you’ll hear it from artists as diverse as Green Day, Emmylou Harris, Buddy Holly, AC/DC, Elvis, Motorhead and more – just to prove how Berry’s music transcends genres and the ages. So be with us at The Vinyl Resting Place, on RadioMaxMusic.com Sunday Morning at 9, Sunday night at 10 – or both!
With the passing of one of the last of the founding fathers of Rock and Roll – we are dedicating all three hours of our show (The Vinyl Resting Place) this week to Mr Chuck Berry. There will be interviews, and live performances from the 50’s to just a few months past. So tune in (there is an app) or surf on over to RadioMaxMusic.com at 9am or for the encore at 10pm – or both – and lets celebrate a life in music. Next week we’ll give Mr Berry the full Vinyl Resting Place treatment, with lots of odd facts, history and music you might be unfamiliar with – but for this Sunday – it’s all Berry for all 3 hours.
This week on Vinyl Resting Place for one show – and one show only – we move into the current Millennium – with 3 hours of top ten songs from the first dozen years of this so-called current epoch! Sunday at 9am and again at 10 PM
Sunday at 9 (am) or 10 (pm) on The Vinyl Resting Place, Its Academy Awards time – during hour 1 we’ll play all 18 AAN (Academy Award Nominated) songs from the Disney Studios. – during our second hour – its Bond; James Bond, and all 6 Bond songs that have been nominated. we’ll then play the reaming nominated songs from 2016 (one of which will win Sunday) – and for our last hour – we play the rest of the AA winners from 1998 to 2014. Even if you can’t bear to watch the actual show – at least the tunes are worth listening to…. Join Willie B on RadioMaxMusic.
This week on The Vinyl Resting Place we take a bit of a tour around this great country of ours from Boston, to Kansas, from Chicago to Miami and back to Alabama – In fact, he hit America as well! so tune in (okay – just click) to radiomaxmusic.com – 9am Sunday for 3 hours of classic American Vinyl.
The Vinyl Resting Place will have its last new show of 2016 – and we go out on a different note. Each year we put together a Christmas special – we’ve done “top of the charts” – “Christmas around the world” – “A Country Christmas” – “favorites from the history of recorded sound” – this year we shift gears. We’ll be broadcasting starting at 9am Sunday, as if it were 9PM December 24th. We’ll have celebrities offering their seasonal greetings, and will be linked to NORAD as they track a UFO that looks a lot like Santa!
The program will be available on-demand December 23.
You see Saturday, the 24, is a rare event – Not only is it Christmas Eve, but it is the first day of Hanukkah. So as you light your tree or the first candle of your menorah – replay our show! For two full hours we offer the music of Hanukkah – and not one minute of Adam Sandler (promise).
Then, starting at 11 we bring you a special treat. In each Christmas show we’ve included a couple of tracks from one of my favorites; “Snappy Holidays from the Sonic Underground (a Long Island based outfit that’s been elevating the musical consciousness of the area since 1995!) Well this year – we play the complete album – plus a bonus – One track that appears on the Snappy Holidays album – returned – 16 years later – this time as a duet, and we’ll be playing both versions; this Sunday on RadioMaxMusic.com. In our next (and final) update – we tell you a bit about that track, the ablum on which it made its comeback – and give you a sneak peak into the direction The Vinyl Resting Place will be taking in 2017 – as we start our 12th year on RadioMaxMusic.com.
This week we remember some of the many we have lost in 2016 (except Florence Henderson – I’ve learned my lesson) – we play one, two or three songs from just a few of our favorites, and use their Christmas themed songs where we can. We had to leave a few off, and – we have a few weeks to go until 2017, so the list may grow longer. – Sometime in January we’ll fill in with those we had to leave off. Next week its our last show of the year and the season – so we pretend it’s Christmas eve, and play our annual holiday round-up (with all new material, and the same tired old host)
