We venture into the Vinyl Resting Place archives for a special which aired in February 2010. Willie B hosted a Valentine’s Day Special. 6pm on RadioMaxMusic.
This week; Sunday (9am or pm) we feature week one of the letter R on The Vinyl Resting Place – on RadioMax – in honor of the season, we kick things off with Bob Rivers – Walkin’ ‘Round In Women’s Underwear, then stay around for Cliff Richard, Eddie Rabbitt, Helen Reddy, Jerry Reed, Johnny Rivers, Lionel Richie, Marty Robbins, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Rare Earth, Rascals,
Righteous Brothers, and the Rolling Stones.
Willie B takes a special look at the world of American Vocal group harmony – sometimes called street corner serenades, sometimes called doo-wop – every time two or more friend would get together and the conversation turned to music, the result could be magical. You know their names, the Belmonts, The Orioles, The Mills Brothers, the Flamingos, the Dominoes – now hear their music – interrupted only by the occasional factoid, offered by the curator of our Vinyl Resting Place – Willie B.
Yes we lost another music legend – this week, and maybe next, we pay tribute to Gregg Allman.
No – we will not be playing cuts from “Two the hard way” – this week we feature “All My Friends” On January 10, 2014, a star-studded tribute concert to Gregg Allman was held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. All My Friends is a rousing success. Haynes and Trucks open up the show, then there’s a stretch that showcases the group’s blues and soul roots — Sam Moore and Keb’ Mo’ show up, then Taj Mahal and Dr. John. There’s space made for Americana maverick John Hiatt, ’70s peer Jackson Browne, jam band Widespread Panic, and country stars Trace Adkins, Vince Gill, Zac Brown, and Eric Church before the Allman Brothers Band ties things up with “Dreams” and “Whipping Post.” All My Friends illustrates just how rich Gregg Allman’s contribution to American music is and what we’ll miss.
It happens 9am today on The VInyl Resting Place on RadioMaxMusic and encore at 10pm.
This week on the Vinyl Resting Place, we pay tribute to those who don a uniform of this great country, and risk their lives to make sure we are free.
Today the Vinyl Resting Place will be offering its afternoon in the morning. Couple of weeks back we offered up songs of the morning – today, starting at 9am (with a replay at 10PM) we spin platters that take us from noon to early evening – sound confusing? – It is (I can’t figure it out) – maybe the playlist will help…… Join Willie B on RadioMaxMusic.
